It also has a sling hole to allow for easier and more comfortable transport.

Harris Engineering S-BRM - Best Bipod For Coyote Hunting

This is a heavy duty hunting bipod that can put up with a lot of abuse. It adjusts between 6 inches and 9 inches utilizing push button spring action leg ejection; you then adjust the legs using the notches.

The swivel action allows you to adjust for greater accuracy on uneven ground without having to readjust the legs. This bipod is proudly made in the USA.

Pros and Cons

This bipod pivots about 30 degrees left and right, but does not come with a pod lock. This means it will cant unless you tighten the swivel screw.

It also does not come with an adapter, however, Harris Engineering does make one for it. The price is definitely a bit higher, but with that price comes a rock solid bipod that will last for years.

What people are saying...


This bipod has amazing reviews, with 98% of all buyers giving it four or more stars -85% gave it five stars. Many buyers loved how solid and rugged this hunting bipod is, with quite a few commenting on how easy it is to use. A few buyers commented on how easy it was to attach to their gun and that it doesn't jump when firing. What few negative comments there were mentioned the lack of a pod lock.

This bipod has a panning head and comes with Picatinny mount and swivel stud mount adapter so it's ready to use, no matter what type of rifle you have. Made of sturdy lightweight aluminum with a steel top platform, this bipod also comes with a limited one year warranty. It weighs less than a pound and measures between 8.1 inches and 12.7 inches, to help you get just the right height.

Pros and Cons

The legs are adjustable in two different ways: for quick use just pull them out and the quick-release lock will lock them in place; the press of a button quickly retracts them.

For uneven terrain, you pull the leg out to the desired length then use a twist knob to lock it in place. This provides more versatility, but can be tricky to get the hang of.

Adapter is included, so there is nothing extra to buy. It also comes with a posi-lock for more accuracy. The Picatinny mount could be a bit more durable, but it does get the job done.

What people are saying...


88% of total buyers gave this bipod a rank of four or more stars. The sturdy construction was a big hit, as it held up over months of use even with higher caliber rifles. The extra height was also an appreciated feature as it allowed for larger capacity magazines to be used, which isn't possible with say a 6 inch bipod. A few buyers commented that this hunting bipod was just as good as a Harris, and that they couldn't find any real difference between them. Complaints were rare, one buyer wishing the Picatinny screw was stronger another stating that the quick-release on the legs was a finger trap.

This lightweight bipod weighs just 10 ounces and has spring release legs that adjust between 6 inches and 9 inches, for a total height of between 7 1/2 inches and 10 3/8 inches. The legs release quickly with just the push of a button and then easily adjust by holding the button and pushing the legs in. It's made of anodized aluminum and steel, with a rubber padding to protect the forefront of your gun.

Pros and Cons

The legs fold forward or back to give you more flexibility in storing and transporting this bipod while mounted to your gun. It does swivel which can make for sturdy shooting, but may be annoying on uneven terrain.

This is a very affordable bipod which makes it a great entry level bipod, but it may not offer the same longevity as pricier bipods.
