    Whilst reading about this model and watching videos, i see shooters using an Atlas bipod. The pod seems fine for bench rest but appears to be somewhat limited in elevation. Would this be a hindrance when shooting prone out in the field or do some use a conventional pod like a Harris.
    Your thoughts please

    The ATLAS extends far enough for most prone work, the problem you will always have with a Harris is the rail interface, the converter from stud to Weaver is a bodge at best.

    Better to buy a good quality ATLAS copy IMO than fudge fit a Harris, alternatively just buy and fit the best, ACCUTAC!

    I use one in the field as well as on the bench, normal situations with the legs angled forward and legs extended if need be.
    Out in the field if more elevation is needed I just bring the legs back in a notch so they are upright, with the legs extended to the max it’s more than enough to shoot comfortably prone, any more than that it’s off sticks.

    Rich the legs do extend if that’s what you mean
    And they also tilt if you slack the big nut underneath

    Must admit, I really like the atlas style of bipod. And I agree with the above that they seem to look good on most guns.

    I’ve even got one on my Ultra....

    ^^^This.

    I bought an atlas copy (£32) from Amazon just to see if I like that style of bipod. The main reason was that I already have the javelin, but I opted for the longer version for the very reasons you are asking about. As it turns out its now too long to shoot well off the bench but performs great out in the field, hence buying the atlas clone. The main difference is obviously the weight.

    The quality is very good, although I am sure the pan/tilt function would be better on the original you really can't argue for the money the clone costs. There are also videos on youtube to show you how to "upgrade" the clone bipods with a couple of o rings....I haven't done that yet as I didn't see a need to, but might at some point.

    Whether I buy more copies or the atlas itself remains to be seen

    The stock on that ultra is stunning, let alone the bipod!

    I was not aware of this feature of being able to bring the legs back a notch :up:

    My mates having a hamster made for his impact by a well known company. Then I think they will be on sale. Waiting for a picture off him when it's done.

    IMAG0905.jpg IMAG0905.jpg For the money you can't go wrong with an Atlas clone, it has enough adjustment for most shooting positions and works well on the impact because you can bring the legs forward at 45 degrees to move the pivot point further up the rifle.

    That being said, I'm ordering an accu-tac clone from China next week and will post a comparison/review once I get it
