The Harris HBLM Bipod is the compact and light model of the Harris range and features notched legs which gives it the "M" designation in its model name. The legs are extendable to provide a range of from 9” to 13". The significance of the notched legs means that it is possible to lock the legs into heights that are measured precisely at 1 inch intervals.
The ultralight range of Harris bipods are the medium height range and they are designed to be perfect for prone shooting with the height adjustment suitable for overcoming high-growing grass and other low impediments. If you feel that you would prefer a lightweight model that comes with standard legs you might like to take a look at the HBL or a swivel version that helps you overcome uneven terrain which is the HBLS model.
Although the bipod is light in weight, weighing only 11oz, 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.
It has been designed as a lightweight unit although it is slightly heavier than the HBRM 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.
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.
