Excellent bipod, works excellent with the x22 hunter stock. I feel it is superior to the Harris bipods that I own. I have seen some reviewers get carried away and express it is as good as an Atlas. As an owner of both, that is an overstatement. It is an exceptional value for a bipod. The drawbacks to it are there are only 2 stops on the angle, one at 90 and the other at 180. Also the swivel is a great feature but I am not able to completely lock it from moving. I can only tighten mine so it doesn’t move as easily.
The closest thing I have to compare this to is a Harris BRMS (also a tilting bipod). For Magpul's first iteration on a new design, this is great. For my application, I wanted a lighter, lower-profile bipod (when retracted) that stays on the rifle. This bipod definitely does a great job in those areas. I also appreciate that tightening the tilt and swivel with the large knurled knob is pretty easy compared to a stock H-BRMS (which just makes nearly everyone buy an aftermarket part to make it functional).
I know that M-Lok design makes it more difficult to implement a quick-detachment system like a picatinny rail bipod can do, but that would really put this bipod ahead of nearly anything on the market.
In terms of usage, the controls are pretty simple. It's more like an Atlas-style bipod for extending and rotating the legs, but the buttons are more streamlined and better integrated. The exterior of the legs (the parts that extend) are polymer, but I haven't noticed them really bending or deflecting much while pre-loading it with considerable force. I'm sure they'll "give" more than a steel or aluminum leg, but the difference is probably more perceived than real.
The downside of this tripod is the price. A Harris product that costs slightly less than this definitely has a nicer fit-and-finish and will likely stand up to more regular use and abuse than this. Besides a set of different physical properties, this bipod isn't going to function significantly different then a Harris.
Magpul does a great job at mass producing things using new materials and fabrication tech, so I wonder why this bipod isn't undercutting the market stalwarts yet and becoming the next "go-to" bipod for most of the shooting crowd.
Works great. Very similar to an Atlas, but much cheaper. It foes have a little bit of play in the legs after they are fully extended compared to a Harris that is locked up tight, but.not a big deal once you're pushing into it before you shoot.
