Have a plastic one. Light weight and feels very solid.

Now need someone to abuse his, and tell me how durable this thing could stand.

Those plastic legs have steel inserts molded into them.

Don't know about the product, but I like the concept. If it is rugged enough to withstand combat use, then it will be a gold mine for the inventor.

Whats the length on them? When I see them on rifles they just look to long. I like shorter Vert grips.

So this is strange. My college roomate is Force Protection Officer of Kandahar airbase, and I was suprised when the photo he just sent me was with a Grippod.

The bi-pod is best mounted near the front of the gun so if you want a VFG near the receiver, you end up with a bi-pod too close to the center of the gun and throw off the balance when you are deploying the bi-pod. this goes with the grip being too forward. having the bi-pod where the it should be, might give the use a too long of a reach to the grip. this is great if you need control for F/A or if you have a suppressor added to the end of the barrel, so having the grip closer to the front of the handguard will give better control and balance. but for most of us, the grip is more comfortable near the center or to the rear, it also give FA control, balance, and best platfomr if you want to take a long range shot.


great concept but i like to stick to bi-pod and grip seperately.



We at Grippod Systems are very suprised to hear your thoughts on our product.
The Grippod, model GPS-01 is manufactured from 7075 T6 hard coat anodized aluminum and heat treated/passivated & oxided stainless steel. Only a handfull of prototypes were made with carbon steel parts. The unit you speak of with corrosion would have to be one of those. We have come along way since then...Perhaps you should look into current models & then give us a new critique, we would appreciate that. We are presently shipping thousands of both Grippod models to all branches of the U.S. Military and federal agencies. Many of those people in harms way, love the items and appreciate the fact that they are available. The grip to rail interface alone is enough to warrant their use. Our system does not require two dogs and four hands to install...They will also attach easily to closed end rail systems and basically have one of the strongest rail interfaces of any VFG we have seen to date.

Kindest Regards, Joe / Grippod Systems LLC

If they could make this thing hold a Surefire 6P also, I would buy one in a second.

Hmm maybe drill and tap it?



Sounds like a plan.

It would be the premier "Ghetto Light/Bipod" all in one.

How much are the two models? There is no price on the web site. (I think this might be cool for my FAL.)
