You sure you want one non-removeable on an M4-gery?

I was planning on doing a review with detailed photos of the GG&G bipod but my camera died. Here are two of it anyway.

The GG&G comes with a built in mount that slides right onto your rail and tightens by a hand nut on the bottom. It is all you need if you have a rail to mount it on.

Do the legs of the GG&G bipod fold forward or backwards? I have GG&G's modular handguards on my Colt carbine and am looking hard at their bipod.

I personally highly recommend 20 ROUND magazines in a bipod-equipped rifle...

If one is prone with a bipod, that 30-rd'er is going to be a PITA...

They fold forward.

do you guys no where I can get the GG&G Bipod? Is it stupid to have a Bipod on a M4A3
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 5:14:06 AM EDT
Putting a bipod on a 4 is like putting a kickstand on a tricycle.
Sure it'll work, but why?
An M4 is a CQB gun. A bipod ads weight, is a serious snag risk, etc.

I have a Harris on my stock SP1, and I took the Harris overseas and put it on my A2 on static posts, cause I worked nights and it was usually AN/PVS4 scoped. Bipod made it much more comfortable, and prevented me from having to rest the gun on sandbags (ever notice the sandbag most likely to leak is the one closest to your gun?.....Murphy is an ass isnt he!)

I just dont see much use for it on a 4.

My two cents worth.

your end use decides is a bipod is a stupid idea. not some chat room. If all your going to use this rifle for is parrier dogs then get a bipod. You can remove it for other uses.

On a 4? Is this some new lingo?

Ever hear of overwatch? An M4 type/based rifle is not ust used for just CQB anymore.

I would also say that there are pictures out there of special operations troops with bipods on their 14.5 inch and 10.5 inch rifles. They use the bipod as a vertical grip instead of a typical vertical grip. Again they dont seem to have a problem with it.

Assuming of course that he is going to be using his "4" for CQB. I know it's crazy, but some "civilians" don't actually clear rooms on a regular basis. Then why get a "4" you ask? Because they want to. It's really a pretty simple concept once you grasp it.

Just my $0.0825 worth.

If you ever get your camera working, I would love to see it folded and how it works with a vertical grip when folded.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 3:37:22 PM EDT
I used 4 the same way I use "16" ,"60 or Pig", "203" etc. etc.

I assume that most folks here know what I am talking about.

I fully understand the concept of its your gun, your money, etc. do what you want. I certainly do, and we all like to tailor our stuff to our needs, wants, and desires. I just questioned the practical use of a bipod on an 4. The concept is short and light, whereas a bipod is more at home on a full sized rifle. It has limited usefulness, and the hinderance may outweight the limited benefits. And yes, I understand that a civilian may not engage in traditional CQB, or high risk entries, but if the son-of-a-bitch is in my home at 2:00 a.m. it is damn sure a Close Quarters Battle for me.

I will not use a 4 to engage targets at 500 meters, although it may do the job, it is not in its ideal environment, and luck has more to do with success than that particular tool. Just as I would not want to fight a 4 in my bathroom if a pistol is handy. Right tool, right gadgets, right job.

And just because a snake eater has something on his gun, that alone does not justify putting it on yours. Unless you have govt money to try out all the widgets and didgets, the endless hours of training to pick and choose what works for you and what doesnt, and the ammo and time to put it all together, it is best to keep things as simple as possible.

First as Wolfox said,"I'm very happy with my Harris Swivel Bipod. I would buy another."
Got one on my Bushie and I really like it.
Now for the TDI bipod,I have one on my Bulgarian AK and it's ok. Sometimes the legs extend when I bump it (spring loaded extension) and the rubber pads on the bottom tend to get buggered up quickly with normal wear.I removed mine for a pistol grip but it's a pretty good bipod.Would I pay $99 dollars for one again?
Nope. Hope this helps.

I like and use the Harris 6-9 swivel with a Pod-Loc and #32 throwlever. I think this set up is very hard to beat! The only thing that I would like to see on the Harris are the "Raptor" or "Talon" feet like on the last bipod that New-Arguy posted. I'll be sticking to the Harris until something better comes along. I'm not saying the others are bad but they are not for me.
Link Posted: 12/14/2005 4:06:58 AM EDT
Some of the verapods can go as high as $330.00.

The cheapest I have seen GG&Gs was for somewhere in the $150s.

Good luck

grippod (heavy but incredibly useful - plus there's a polymer one now that's lighter.)







subsequent setup has a M900 now:





but that's why we get rails and QD moutns, I can switch back and forth in seconds, and then pop my harris/FirstSamco combo on too...



all three 'modules' constantly move beteen my rifles....

and IMO, If you're going removable harris, go with the First Samco mount, cost me around 25$, light, simple and does teh job well....

This is a classic thread. it starts out with a Bipod on an M-4 and turns into a full size SPR -Bipod picture show.

and when someone points out the fact that putting a Bipod on what is suppose to be a lightweight Carbine might be equivelent to a kickstand on a tricycle (which I agree with) he is shown a pic of a SF guy with one so that makes it make more sense.....

But yet anyone with an HBAR is a knucklehead for having a little extra weight on the end of the barrel.

if a guy is shooting a range queen off a bench and that's all he does, I suppose a Bipod is no big deal.

To each their own. but if it were me, I'll use the harris I have owned for the last 10 years if I wanted to put one on my Carbine. it's a bipod not a rocket.

But then again, I use my magazine in the prone to shoot at longer range targets....

I don't clear rooms with mine either. I only have this one and I enjoy shooting it from the bench. Just happened to take the photo after coming back from the range and zeroing the cheap Wal-Mart scope ( have a new one under the tree). The bipod comes off with the twist of a screw when I get home.

Hey, I saw a pretty decent looking one that looked similar to the harris bipod style at wal-mart. It was like 39 bucks I think. I think I'll buy one and try it out. If I don't like it I can just return it.

Do the tango down and GGG both have a swivel feature like the Harris? Can the tightness of the swivel be adjusted like it can on the Harris? Are either of these bipod significantly stronger than the Harris (for use on larger, say .50 cal, rifles)?
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 1:43:04 AM EDT
Tango Down swivels and pans. It uses urethane bushings for control of tightness. Looks pretty stout as well. Folds back along handguards.

GG&G comes in standard, standard w/ swivel, heavy duty, and heavy duty w/swivel. Can't adjust the tightness though. Folds forward of handguards.

Don't know about using either on a .50

I'm kinda confused as to which unit to get for my carbine. Anyone know the difference between the standard and HD bipods?
