    That's a nice looking bit of kit there @ChrisF. I like the feet. This may be a dumb question, as I don't know about Ruger PR's, does the over barrel mounting of bipod effect the view through yr scope?

    Can that mount be flipped upside down, and mounted on the lower rail ?
    looks like it could be, just seams a strange way to mount a bi pod, the way it is.

    It's supposed to be more stable with the barrel hanging beneath the swivel point rather the wobbling around on top, don't know if it's true or not

    To be honest , I have not even looked thru the bloody scope yet , just got the thing , from what others overseas have said , is they donot see the bipod , will have a look later .
    The bipod is a UK redesign of a German design made for 50 BMG rifles , so its sturdy , and being alloy its light weight .

    Opps , they do two models , a tall one and a std one , the tall is what you see mounted on the RPR , and its for that application , ie quad rail top mount , ie RPR and AI AX rifles etc , the std one is shorter and mounts like a normal bipod , ie harris, Parker Hale etc on the bottom .
    He does a number of mounting spigots options etc .
    Go to his website .

    Nice design, yes I could see how slinging the barrel below the mount could improve stability.

    Opps , and for those few that like their sh%t tight , if you look on the top you will see a allen head bolt , that goes thru the bottom to a spring loaded pad , and if you screw this up tight , this tightens up the pivot / swing etc

    Yes it looks very similar to the Bipod on my Steyr HS50-M1
