    If the Google search is the same they look like just another Harris copy.

    Yeah look to be Harris copy the website has an online help chat. Asked where was manufactured, they said manufactured in China designed in Christchurch. Not really worried where its made as most shit seems to be made there now just wondered if it would handle the handle, mate has a Remington one and hasn't had a problem yet. But have heard others had nothing but problems with them. I shoot with both .223 and 7mm Rem Mag so recoil could be a problem. Dunno........ your thoughts.

    Don't know the bushbuck, but the remington is crap, honestly it will be cheaper in the long run to save for the harris.
    I bought the remington thinking the same, guess what, bought a harris a year later as it had fucked out, reloaders have them for $170

    look on ebay or shipped from the US. As has been said, pay two thirds the price of a Harris for a cheaper model till it breaks and you have to buy another or just get one harris. Put $20 a week away and in no time you'll have it.

    Bushbuck seller on TM was quick to deliver for me - I needed one asap and got it delivered to my home the following day. There's no return spring in the legs so after extending them, you need to manually push down to retract them.

    Is it worth it ? Well quality always costs so don't expect high quality for such a low cost. But for a low cost it's pretty effective and was a cheap fix which suits my needs at the moment. I have low expectations so not thinking it'll still be on my rifle in 10 years time.

    I've had remington bipods on the 6.5 and .308 for 4ish years still going strong and 1 on the 300wsm. Don't be a rough cunt and they should be alright.

    if your a hunter get a harris
    if your guns live in the safe and just do range work then get the Chinese copys
    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Spot on, and I think this may reflect Toby's experiences with cheap ones

    Toby you're not alone there mate.... I reckon the rifle needs its share of vitamin D from the sun too - can't leave it in the cupboard. The animals just seem to get their vitamin D in different locations......,
