I used to swear by the Harris Bi-pods but since i have invested in the new SniperSystems one, I am completly sold.

It basicly dous exactly the same as the Harris but is loads lighter which obviously effects to balance of the rifle not to mention its loads cheaper.
Yes they were struggling with the pins that latch onto the stud a year ago, however if you bur the latest model you will find they have listened to customer feedback and fixed the problem.

I have used mine extensivly on the Wolverine since Feb/Mar an all kinds of weather and had no issues or dramas what-so-ever.

That's good to hear Marcus; since I sorted the mounting lugs on my Sniper Systems long-leg (17-29") is on and off various rifles in the Summer months, perfect sitting or kneeling, particularly in long vegetation. The friction lock tilt leaver and graduated legs are also excellent. As for pure build quality I think that Harris have the edge, I've used one for over twenty years without any problem. I have also heard good reports of Edgar Bros. bipods.
As the actress said, "it all depends how many times one lifts one's legs up and down before it falls off". :D

I am going to have an Air Ranger, where is the better place to mount the bipod?

On the stock/wood or on the bottle?

Thanks

In my opinion a properly fitted stock mounted quality sling stud is the best, Uncle Mike's are excellent, you've got to have a good idea of how you expect to use the bipod in the field. ;)

It will really only be used for range/tarrget shooting, 50-100m

Hunting with airguns not allowed in the Netherlands.

Ah ha, Robert, I didn't look at your location; if you don't already have a bipod, I find the notched leg 8 - 13 inch models are the most versatile, if it was purely for bench rest the short leg models are best. Tilt lock can be a useful advantage. ;)
