    Really like my one compared to the Remington bipod I bought first. The Bushbuck performs well and has stood up over the couple of years I've had it.

    Got one and a Harris, one is better than the other but I guess it depends how much you shoot as to how much you want to spend. Out to 300m I probably wouldn't notice the difference between the two

    I've never had any issue with my Remington short bipod (I understand they're comparable to the bushbuck) but I went for Harris when I bought my 25" one. It's about what you expect of the item.

    The bush Buck one is many times better than the Remington, I had a Remington and it fell to bits, I now have an atlas and a bush Buck and rate them both, you can't beat the build quality and function of the bushbuck for price

    I could never crank mine up to not swivel and also find the legs are too long even on the shortest setting.

    Have upgraded to a Harris.

    Yep, agree with Dougie. The legs are long and it still swivels when "locked" down. It is a long way short of the Harris and a lot better than the Remington. The length of the legs can be a bonus too but I always go back to the Harris . I liked it initially, but would spend the money on a Harris next time.

    Cheap gear ends up being expensive in the long run, as you end up buying proper gear sooner or later.

    Buy once cry once is an incorrect saying, it would be nicer to read......

    Buy good gear first and be happier longer.
