Hi

Do you want this for hunting? If so I suspect it may be a bit of snag specialist. I have not had experience with this particular item but with one extraordinarily similar. It was well made, reliable, definitely functional in the field and easy to use. It seemed to want to become entangled in anything and everything. It also had an annoying by admittedly not very loud rattle/ click sort of noise during carriage unless held with a rubber band.

As I said the item I experienced was differently branded. Love to hear from anyone who has direct experience with this particular brand/model.

A good bipod is a bit spendy but a not so good or unproven one may well make you lose confidence in your shooting ability.

Personally, I would go with an Atlas. Well proven, compact, silent, lightweight. Utterly user-friendly with no annoying issues I know of having used them since they first came out maybe 10 years ago as a Military only item. Atlas bipods are in wide use with Special Forces and Snipers in particular and wider military, law enforcement and all sorts of professional users. It is no accident they are often in short supply.

Hope you get a good result

G'Day Fella's,

Stagrinon, here is a link, that shows the Accu-Tac, LR-10 bi-pod I have.

They are not cheap but are exceedingly well designed, and made.
I'm very happy with this one.

Hope that helps

D'oh!

From your comments, I do not think the item we tested is the same as the one asked about. Do you/would you use this bipod hunting or is it a range only item?

The one we had to play with was definitely a range only item and I suspect you have one which is an iteration or two later or improved by someone else.  Does your example exhibit play or rattle when being carried?

I could swear the one in your photo was identical to the version we tested and now am extremely curious to hear your thoughts.

Finally, how does it stack up against the Atlas bipod?

Didn't look at the Accu-tac or Atlas but have just bought a carbon fibre Javelin. Be interesting to see how it performs compared with the old Harris

G'Day Fella's,

50 BMG please scroll down on this link;
https://forum.nosler.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=34348&p=372046#p372046
for a view of the Accu-Tac bi-pod.

To address your questions;
The one I have (LR-10 mdel), is the biggest model/version that Accu-Tac make. So it is physically big, and is not light (so this model, maybe not be the best for use on a Walk-About/Climb hunting rifle).

No, the one I own, is very well designed and made. There is no loose play in any of it's system. The parts that move, are all spring loaded, and or have a interlocking Tapered surfaces, and this eliminates any rattling. It also pivots L to R.

I think the price alone (at well over $500.00 AUD-for their biggest (LR-10) with QD model), tells you how it compares to the Atlas.
The Atlas is a good Bipod, but the Accu-Tac, is the best (but they are Big, Bulky and Heavy), of the the bipods I've had a played with (= most).

Please remember, I have seen Chinese knock off's, of Atlas bi-pods, so there could be Chinese versions of the Accu-Tac available as well?

Hope that helps

Avagreatweekendeh!
