WAY WAY too long... needs to flip forward OR back like "the other brand"
Link Posted: 1/15/2005 1:48:06 PM EDT
hey Devl,
it's definitely not too long, in the lowest position. any lower and a 30 rnd mag would be on the deck. the lowest position is for prone with no web gear, if you're wearing armour then the middle position is used. the highest position is for big fellas with gear on, or shooting at elevated targets.
in the pics below, targets were engaged at 75-100 yds no prob from prone, and was just the right height. you can mount it so the legs fold forward or back.
cheers,
MM

Don't you have some convertible dance slippers to design?

That's right! what color was it you wanted again?
Link Posted: 1/17/2005 5:34:33 PM EDT

I'll take 'em in black. Cause the pink ones you were wearing when I saw you last were just too...gay looking. Also, I don't like your spike heels. They slip around on empty brass at the range.

Do you have any pictures of the rail attachment interface? Does it use the Parker-Hale style stud?
Link Posted: 1/18/2005 3:10:11 PM EDT
Fragrant Vagrant,

The ACB-4 bipod has an integral M-S 1913 compatable mount for rail systems. We also offer a mount that allows installation on a sling stud. We will unveil those at SHOT.

FV, ..if 'Rastamon' moves next door to you, your lawn will die.

Ok, 'Rastatwinky'..here's a little secret for you. We mold a LoJack transmitter in EVERY vertical grip we sell. Better hope you sleep in a place that isn't allergic to C4.

Back to the topic: At SHOT, we will have the ACB molded in black, tan and OD green.

I hate to interrupt the grabassing .....But I got a question, will the bipod work on the ARMS 45 SIR?. I know you said ANY RAIL SYSTEM.......... But you know the SIR isn't really ......what's the word I'm looking for
Link Posted: 1/19/2005 1:38:03 AM EDT
How do the legs lock in the down position? How are they released?

Do the legs lock in the forward position?

Thanks
Link Posted: 1/19/2005 11:58:20 AM EDT
StonerStudent,

We designed the clamp assembly on our bipod to accommodate authentic MS1913 rails, and Weaver type rails as well. It will fit the SIR no problem. We recommend getting a 6:00 rail as long as possible from ARMS to take advantage of all the possible bipod mounting configurations.

Green Timber,

By simply depressing the bronze-colored buttons on the bipod legs, you unlock the legs. To deploy, swing them down 90 degrees and they auto-lock. To stow the legs, press the buttons, swing up 90 degrees and they auto-lock again. There is no need for the legs to fold forward.

Should you run and trip with the legs down, an internal clutch will allow the legs to stow without damage.

You can turn the bipod around, place it ALL the way up against the mag well for depressed angle shots. The arc of traverse is substantial in this mode as a bonus. To extend a leg, you just pull. No buttons, knobs to push, so no time is wasted bringing the bipod to use. To retract after action, press a button and push closed.

If either one of you guys has 'Rastamumph' over for dinner, count the silverware before he leaves..

In the pics that Saico posted, it looks like the bayonet lug is partially obsturcted. Can a bayonet be used with the bipod attached to a carbine.? I may need to do a drive by bayonetting

BookHound,

A SureFire Dual Thumb Screw mount and Throw Lever Mount found on the 90 series lights require the knobs and/or lever to be facing up. A SureFire X200 does not interfere at all. As for othe goodies? I don't have a PAQ2or4 on hand to mount up, but my guess is it will also mount without interference.

Link Posted: 1/24/2005 9:22:47 PM EDT
That looks pretty damn awesome. Has anyone done a side by side comparison of this and the GG&G bipod?

Weight of the closest Harris equiv. model, the S LM ( as issued on the MK11 Mod 0) is 15.9 oz.

The final production TangoDown ACB-4 weighs 15.0 oz

Does the ACB-4 1913 rail mount have quick detachment capabilites?

When it was posted that the weight was 10.5ozs it was a little more tempting. Now I don't know so much.

Simpler more rugged design at that weight and no traversion capability that I know of on any of the Harris models.

Not yet, no...

Guys on a side note. Bipods should'nt only be deployed on sporting and/or DMR type arms. The advantages bipods provide can be, and should be enjoyed by as many rifleman as possible. But in the past their design limitations have prevented the average infantryman rifleman (if there is such a thing, all that I've met have been anything but average) from being able to enjoy the luxury of a bipod specifically designed for combat.
While Harris' are a good design, they are a sporting bipod design, pressed into service as a combat or "Fighting" bipod. They are relatively complex in design, relying partially on spring tension as an aspect of their use. The TD design is designed originally w/ the intent to use as a fighting bipod. That takes into account those pesky Tango's that often tend to run, hence the traversion capability built into the design. The simplicity of the bipod also demonstrates its design as a fighting bipod. Uni-directional ratcheting type extension of the legs w/ a detent type closure. Fast out to pos. simple collapse, once the shot/shots/ engagement's done.
The length was designed as MM stated w/ body armor/LBV taken into acct. Some measure was also taken to assure a slightly larger footprint on those legs to prevent digging in of the legs. Some inevitable "digging" of the legs was also taken into acct. and built into the length.
While Harris' have a good history of use, they are often deployed by those that have the ability/luxury of taking the extra measure of care to deploy them correctly, and care fo them adequately. Getting the bipod on as many of our war fighter's guns as possible, and having them 1) stand up to everyday war fighting, and 2) allow their deployment as practically as possible was TD's intent, and they've succeeded. As proof of that, the response TD got from most of their visitors at SHOT will soon become apparent to everyone. These things should start to appear on firearms from varying manufacturers, adn as part of "Basic system" entries into several new bids...
