The Harris HBRS Bipod is an ultra light bipod with standard extendable legs that provides a range of from 6” to 9”. The significance of the "S" in the model name is that this particular model swivels and it is this feature that makes it perfect for use on uneven terrain and saves you the trouble of having to play around with the length of the legs as you get it adjusted.
This is the shortest leg setting in the Harris range and the company refers to the style as its bench rest model. It is also possible to get a model, the HBRM, that comes with notched legs that allows you to adjust the height precisely in one inch increments.
The low profile that can be achieved through the length of the legs means it is a bipod that is suited to shooting from the prone position.
Although the bipod is light in weight, weighing only 13oz, it is still quite a heavy duty piece of equipment and will stand up to use with high-powered rifles. The legs are spring-loaded and telescoping that will adjust quickly and have manual friction grip locks.
Harris "S" Lock
It has been designed as a lightweight unit although it is slightly heavier than the HBR model, and it won’t add a significant amount of weight to the pack when you’re on the move. Although it is light in weight it provides a good solid platform support from which to shoot. The legs fold parallel to the barrel for easy carrying and it is possible to choose to mount it so the legs either point forward or to the rear.
It is now also possible to add an "S" Lock (shown to the left), which is available for around $29.00 and well worth the extra little outlay, to the Swivel bipods. This is a lever that replaces the tension adjusting knob and provides an easier means of locking them down firmly. All you have to do is flip the lever to change it from being completely tiltable to totally locked into place.
The bipod will mount to a swivel stud on bolt-action and single shot rifles.
The bipod, as with all Harris Bipods, is 100% made in the USA.
The HBRS is one of the bipods that formed part of our examination of the selection of bipods that have the ability to cant when compensating for uneven terrain. Find out more by visiting our page titled Bipods With Cant Capability.
