The HBRMS model is an uncomplicated light weight bipod with notched extendable legs that provides a range of from 6” to 9”.

This is the shortest leg setting in the Harris range and the company refers to the style as its bench rest model.
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.
