Magpul’s new Bipod with M-LOK, Picatinny and A.R.M.S. 17S-style mounting options was released this week and is now shipping to distributors everywhere.
The company believes the new bipod delivers a feature set that can’t be found in a product at this price point, with a strong, sleek design that quickly and reliably deploys when needed.
The Magpul Bipod is constructed with lightweight mil-spec hard-anodized 6061 T-6 aluminum and injection-molded polymer, a combination that provides serious strength and light weight. The ergonomic design is optimized for rapid one-handed adjustments, quickly and quietly transitioning between configurations. Its clean, low-drag design keeps its hardware concealed to brush off snags and bumps. All at a price significantly lower than comparable bipods.
You can apply forward tension to settle in for a shot (loading the bipod) without fear of failure or warping. At just over 11 ounces, the Magpul Bipod is lighter than many pricier bipods currently on the market. But the 6061 T-6 aluminum, stainless steel internals, and injection- molded reinforced polymer ensure years of dependable performance service.
Magpul’s new bipod was designed not to be noticed until needed. When folded, the streamlined housing and legs fit neatly under the barrel and are just under 2.3 inches deep and 3.3 inches wide. Anodized surfaces and tight, precision tolerances mitigate squeaks and rattles.
Spring-tensioned legs stow neatly forward, but snap down and lock into place easily with one hand. Leg extensions slide and lock securely with the push of a button on any of the seven half-inch spaced locking detents. The legs extend a full four inches, from 6.3 to 10.3 inches.
An industry-exclusive 50 degrees of total tilt and 40 degrees of total pan are controlled by a knurled, glove-friendly tool-less locking knob located between the legs, allowing easy adjustment between shots. Additionally, the Magpul Bipod has the exclusive ability to lock pan at 0 degrees while maintaining full tilt functionality.
Even in the stowed position, the Magpul Bipod has many useful features. The bipod locking knob is covered by a soft-rubber cap that gives users a steady, non-marring forward rest while the bipod is folded. Its staggered, soft-rubber feet hold fast on a variety of shooting surfaces but are easily removed with a roll pin punch if you want. The Magpul Bipod’s legs accept most Atlas-pattern replacement bipod feet should users desire a change.
Made in the USA, the Magpul Bipod is available in black or flat dark earth, at an MSRP of $110.
It comes in three versions: the MAG933 for M-LOK handguards, the MAG941 for M1913 Picatinny Rails, and the MAG951 for A.R.M.S. 17S style QD mounts.
