Need advice as to which of these two is the better. Harris has name brand recognition for quality. But I can't remember hearing any negatives about the Versapod. Plus Versapod is a bit cheaper (yeah...). Opinions? I'm fixing to order one or the other shortly.

Harris. Anything else would be...uncivilized.

I've the series 'S' Model BRM on my Remington 700 and wouldn't recommend any other. Harris all the way!

I'd get both. I use the Versa on my AR's and the Harris on bolt actions. The Harris offers a lot more stability, I think.

Harris is the only way to go, the swivel model

By your logic would it not be wise to use a Harris on your Ar-15 as well. BTW, I use a Harris coupled with a Badger Arms free-float tube. Alex

.... Harris, hands down

The Versipod is made in Communist China, and as such, should be beneath the notice of those who would rather not support slave labor, among other things.

I was going to ask if anyone had any critiques of the Versapod until I saw this. Harris it is!

Harris. Hated my VersaPod, very unstable. Sold it to an officer with the Dallas PD. Go figure. shooter [sniper]

I LOVE the harris on my 700. Getting the picture yet? Nuckles. [smash]

The Harris bipod is lighter than the Vesra-pod. The Versa-pod is a copy of the Parker-Hale bipod. I may add that it is not a good copy at all. You could get the Parker-Hale model unless you want to pay 2x more than a Harris.

If I were shooting what you're shooting, I would use the Harris too. But I like the fact that I can take whatever AR I want out of the safe and swap over the bipod right then and there w/ the Versa. For a plain jane rifle they work just fine. Alex

Harris, no question. I have two and love them. One for shooting bench and prone and the other more for field use to get up over brush. They are awesome.

Yep. Real quick, do I need an adaptor for the 700 or will the Harris fit it without one?

Harris... I didn't know there was another brand of bipod out there... humm. Did I mention Harris is a good choice? Ok, have a Harris... Err, I mean great day. Harris I mean WG. PS. Get a Harris, they're the best out there.

Mine mounts onto the eye where the sling adapter would normally go. As far as the sling, the harris has a sling mount on it. If you are going to be taking the bi-pod on and off alot, you might consider seperate mounts on the rifle for the sling and bi-pod. Nuckles. [smash]

Thanks for the replies. A Harris swivel model is on the way. This being my first bipod, I'm glad I asked.

Go with the harris. The Versa-pod is a cheap copy of the Parker-Hale. Its main problem is that is has poor mettalurgy and the legs will break...its just a matter of time and stress.

What about the Parker-Hale? Anyone got one? I've got a Harris on my 700 Police, but is the P-H better? Thanks. Jason.
