The Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud QD is the next offering in the Magpul bipod line. Designed to mount on the Uncle Mike’s® Sling Swivel Stud found on most sporting rifles, the Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud QD is the strongest, most fully-featured bipod available with direct sling stud mounting capability.
The stainless-steel mounting system self-locates and aligns perfectly every time, and an ergonomic thumbwheel allow for an excellent grip to ensure easy tightening. Additionally, two sizes of non-marring, high-durometer rubber mounting gaskets are provided to ensure optimized fit and load distribution on narrow sporter-contour or wider target-style forends. The ability to mount a sling with standard locking sling swivels on the forend is maintained with a low-profile sling stud on the rear of the Sling Stud QD mount, which also provides for a quick detachment when it’s needed.
The Sling Stud QD bipod is constructed of rugged, high-strength materials and designed to last a lifetime. In the shooting position, it is easily loaded with stabilizing forward tension without fear of failure or warping. Mil-spec hard anodized 6061 T-6 aluminum, stainless steel internals, and injection-molded reinforced polymer ensure years of dependable performance and reliability, all while shaving weight. At just over 13 oz., the Magpul Bipod is lighter than many pricier bipods currently on the market.
Deploying and adjusting the Magpul Bipod is quick and easy. Spring-tensioned legs stow neatly forward and snap down and lock into place with one hand. Leg extensions slide and lock securely with the push of a button on any of the seven half-inch spaced locking detents. The legs extend almost 3.5", from 6.6" to 10.0" in length. An industry-exclusive 50° of total tilt (+/- 25 degrees on either side) is controlled by a glove-friendly knurled tool-less bipod locking knob located between the extended legs, allowing easy adjustment between shots.
From the drawing board, the Magpul Bipod was designed to be barely noticed until needed. Folded, the streamlined housing and legs fit neatly under the barrel and are just under 2.5” deep and 3.3” wide. In addition, anodized surfaces and tight, precision tolerances mitigate squeaks and rattles.
The Sling Stud QD bipod has many features that are also useful even when it is in the stowed position. A soft rubber bipod locking knob cap is attached to the locking knob gives users a steady, non-marring forward rest while the bipod is folded. Additionally, its staggered soft rubber feet hold fast on a variety of shooting surfaces and are easily removed with a roll pin punch. Should users choose to change feet, the Sling Stud QD bipod’s legs accept most Atlas pattern bipod replaceable feet, except for the Atlas 5-H style.
