    Hardys Carbon fiber Bipod - Any thoughts?

    Hey all, I have been looking into getting a HArdys carbon fiber bipod to go on my DPT long range chassis, Can anyone recommend this bipod ?
    Also, the long range chassis has a flat bottom with a sling stud and most sling mounted bipods have a curved base, The Chassis also has what look like bolt holes for a weaver rail ? est. 40mm bolt spacing.

    Does anyone know anything about these? Dpt werent.... very helpful at all, and I feel like they were rude and pushed my quesions away as quickly as they could.

    I dont think ill be dealing with them again

    To be fair why bother with a lightweight carbon bipod for a chassis based rig, chassis rifles are never gonna be light weight compared to a carbon fiber stocked rifle, just get a good solid atlas or similar.
    You don't need carbon fiber on a heavier chassis rifle unless it's just for wank value.
    My 2 cents

    fair enough - I like the fact that they are simple = Less shit poking out to get caught on more shit.

    Although if it is reasonably lightweight it will still be a good crossover for the hunting rifle. Being Hardy it will be over-engineered, expensive but will likely work very well.

    Don't know anything about the Hardy bipod.
    But I've dealt with @DPT a lot and only ever had the best in service. Those slots on the bottom of the chassis fore end from memory take M-LOC attachments that way you can put flat bottom pic rails, sling studs etc on your chassis as required. just google M-LOC adaptors

    I really like Harris bipods, they are pretty lightweight, simple to set up and are quick and easy to remove.
    That being said, if you are going for a chassis and have a rail to mount a bipod to I'd look at a a rail mounted bipod, you can get an adapter for the Harris or something like the Atlas may suit you better.

    great thanks spada, Its saying somthing when you get more info about an item from someone who doesnt work at the place who makes and supplys it!

    Do you know if the "plates" on the sides of the barrel take these m-loc adaptors also? Theres plates that are there... for im guessing asthetics but maybe they have a purpose....

    For a chassis rig, just go with a tried and tested Harris with a set of spikes. Bulletproof and reasonably priced.

    Yep the covers on the side make it look pretty until you need to take one off to install a rail for a torch or whatever

    Slots on the underside of my Tikka/DPT Hunter chassis follow the MDT spacing, that is, 40mm spaced holes (m4?) with slots in between that I believe are m-lok compatible.

    have said earlier... I cant... as the harris bipod has a curved base and the dpt chassis has a flat base.

    Im sorry that our communication did not provide all the information that you were looking for.
    I can confirm that m-loc adapters do not fit our chassis and yes we can supply a picatinny rail that will fit to the bottom of the fore-end of our chassis. The plastic side plates are for aesthetics, you cant attach anything to them.

    If you have any further questions feel free to email us directly.

    Those "carbon" bipods by hardy aren't even lightweight anyhow they're just an atlas knockoff with a bit of carbon tube on each leg
