Hi I have just got a deben bipod for my BSA scorpion and I can't fault it for £50 but if money is no object you can always buy a harris 1 that tilts and swivels and does all sorts of magic tricks for about £150.

You will find you will have to re-drill the stock and mount the QD stud about 20mm further back in order to mount the bipod on the ultra. Otherwise is gets in the way of the MMC cocking button.

No Oscars dad, you just mount the bipod the other way round so that the legs fold to the stock end not to the barrel end (you have to think in reverse sometimes)!!!!! That way the legs do not foul the ruddy awful MMC as stated.

 

Harris swivel (tilting) bipds are available for much less than a hundred and fifty pounds, a 9-13 inch genuine Harris bipod can be had for less than a hundred new if you look around. Two reasons for owning a Harris rather than a copy.

 

1) They are built so much better, better machined, better made, better components.

 

2) They have to be as they come with a lifetime manufacturers warranty!

 

When I started with pcp rifles we bought a Harris copy, a Deben in fact. The pin that stops the prongs that clip onto the QD stud came out, then the rubber pads on the top started to slip, the final blow came was when the ruddy spring came off a leg as it was being lowered into the shooting position. It got taken back, I got a refund. I got a Harris!

cheers lads the harris sound like the one for me so i best get saving

 

or you could just improve your free hand shooting practice practice practice if you start relying on a bipod now you will never get any better its only a small ultra 50 shots a day for a couple of weeks and you will be rock solid

I paid £68 for my harris a few years ago. Don't really use it on the air rifle - hmr only. With practise, you can be stable enough without a bipod at all airgun ranges IMHO.

I bought the one that doesn't tilt, slide (or generally wobble about the place) as I like my 'pod to be rock solid and not easily variable.

A really high quality item the Harris, faultless.

 

Cheers

Depends how old your HW is mate.

If its a newer one then get the one that replaces the forend stock screw
