Do you ever have this problem?

Postby Gamecock24 » Tue Dec 31, 2013 6:11 pm

This may be stupid but I had this problem the other day shooting on the wood bench. The bipod feet weren't gripping to well on the wood so I was having trouble loading the bipod. My initial thoughts are to add grip tape to the feet of the bipod or putting down a mat one the bench to get more traction. Just curious how everyone else deals with this.

What kind of bipod you have? Can you make a picture...

It's a Harris.

Maybe even scuffing up the rubber feet may help.

Well... I'm not completely sure that totally understand the issue... What do you mean by "When loading a bipod..."? Thank you!

When I use any of my bipods they actually slide around pretty easy but if a bench is leveled it doesn't really bother me... :|

It's basically leaning forward into the rifle to place pressure into the bipod.

Here is how this guy handled it and its with home made stuff.
I have nice rubber mats at my shooting range and three different feet for my bipod so it can handle varying types of surfaces.

So legs fold back?

My legs fold forward so I'm leaning into them. Like this but on a bench which may be unnecessary.

Ok thanks I'll look for alternate feet. If a mat doesn't work for me.
