Which one cost more? The PSA truck gun or the KAC bipod? Just making a point, the KAC bipods are not cheap...
Purchased the new bipod this past Friday at my local dealer, thought long about it, but decided to make the purchase. The bipod is well made, out of the box, you can feel the strength, it rattles a lot, but this helps to facilitate deploying the legs and adjusting the height . Very easy to do with one hand. In terms of attaching to the pic rail, it is very easy, I think the spring loaded push button is one of the easiest around, after using the LaRue-Harris modified for years, with the standard LaRue lever, this is by far the easiest.
The photo below shows the two side by side, on exact rifles, LMT MRP rifles, to make sure the height comparison is equal. Both bipods are mounted at the exact location of the bottom of the MRP rail, both retracted closed and legs set at 90 degrees.
The height from the table to center of the FH is 7.5" for the LaRue Harris and 8.75 for the KAC. I did not measure the stance of each, but you can clearly see the KAC has at least a 33% greater stance over the L-H. Attached File
As far as weights, using a digital scale, the KAC is .1 ounce lighter than the L-H, the KAC weighs 13.37 ounces, the L-H is 13.47 ounces, essentially the same.
Not shown in the photographs, but I used a Bealle Tool digital angle measuring tool that I use on my table saw for setting angles and measured the pan angle and pan angle of the bipod is 31 degrees. Doing a quick calculation, this is about 52 yards of panning capability at 100 yards.
At the range this past weekend, setting the bipod, adjusting the height was very quick, may have been me justifying the cost, but seemed easier than the Harris. The rattle went away, was not noticeable, loading the bipod was easy, and this is when the bipod really seemed solid.
Adjusting the cant took a little more effort, as you have to pull the locking collar towards you, pull the handle/knob down to turn the friction adjustment for the cant.
The panning lever was stiff at first, but I did add a small amount of oil and it loosened up. Shot and loaded the bipod with the legs at 90 degree and then tried it with the legs one notch forward, I really liked this setting. The bipod loaded very solid, rapid fire three shot burst was very easy, with all three hitting the 8" gong at 100 yards.
All and all, I am very pleased with the bipod, yes it is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Attached File
I hope this is of some help...
