Looks great!
Do the legs rotate, or better said is there an anti rotation feature to the inner legs so the bipod doesn't "roll away" from you when you load it?

I left me demo

Legs compressed (lowest setting at 90 degrees) center to center about 9.5"
With legs fully extended, about 12.25
Do legs rotate inward (like Harris/old Atlas) or stay in fixed orientation under forward load?

Also, it appears 0 deg (closed), 45 (forward) and 90 (upright) positions, but not 45 deg backward, correct?

Awesome product and innovative way to solve the quick deploy with solid construction! I like it!

I've got a lot of rounds on the prototypes testing the 338SR prototypes. The team kicked ass. This bipod is awesome and the new QD mount is finally a mount good enough for precision rifles.

Lowlight brought up one of the prototypes during one of his training evo’s this past summer in AK. It’s simply awesome, I can’t wait to get my hands on the final product.

From the angle of the pics it's hard to see, but how far down does this hang when it is stowed? It looks like it hangs down quite a ways. That was a big problem with the Accutac. It would hang on EVERYTHING when it was stowed. Any pics from 90 degrees or looking straight down on it (to show width) with it stowed?

Thanks,

I eyeballed it and from the bottom of the pic rail it should be about 1.5" down when stowed, which I think it about as compact as anything else. I posted on FB, only half jokingly, that the pan feature causing problems on other bipods was like 40% of the reason we made this one. Remember the AI/PH bipod was $350 in 2008, and IMO there is no bipod even worth shooting under $300.

I'm looking forward to one! I have been meaning to change my feet and leg extensions to a locking system similar to those as the recessed push buttons are a pain.

Some other notes that came out of the FB thread:

The 45-degree "feature" in most bipods is one we're really torn about, mainly because it seems to cause a lot of problems. The TBAC Bipod has this feature, but we designed it to stay out of your way unless you really deploy it "on purpose". Unless you knew it was there and how to use it, you might never even realize the bipod could do it.

The leg length adjusters were designed so they could be used the same way the old AI/PH ones could be adjusted: stay prone in shooting position, reach forward with weak side hand and pinch button, use strong side hand still in firing grip to cant rifle up- the leg extends "just enough" under spring tension and you release it. Super fast, one handed, does not screw up shooting position.

The titanium inner legs are PVD coated. All stainless hardware (mostly the important mating surfaces) are all ISONITE QPQ Nitrided, and all the rest of the aluminum is Type III anodized.

It's a bipod that has a picatinny adapter on the top and two legs that rotate down from the up position, so in that sense, it will "look" similar to other bipods in gross terms.

We designed this from the ground up and form followed function. Once you look closely, *all* details are different, controls, operation, etc. We would never copy another design, and we are cognizant of existing patents to not unintentionally infringe, and we do have at least one patent filed on our bipod.

Just to confirm, the product page states all B&T plates will work with the new TBAC Bipod. Does that mean I could mount the BTC Pro clamp directly to the TBAC Bipod or will I need to get the RRS plate interface to do that?

Zak,
I noticed you have extensions for the bipod. How many can be put on at one time? Also to deploy the legs do you have to push a button or can they just be pulled down?


Thanks Jeff

Played with one at a match that a TBAC employee had today. Very nice piece, lighter than a Harris, extremely rugged build. The R&D and testing that went into this product was very thorough. TBAC is local to me, and I've seen this bipod at the shooting range since the early prototypes, I just never played with one until today. Buy with confidence.
