Thanks Huggie. Really like the way this one looks and may go for it, if it's quality. Is it a T-Pod G2 and bought through the Mako group out of NY . . .I have one. I like it alot. It cants and swivels. Legs are independently adjustable. Its a foregrip as well.
Thanks for the input batjac. I'll investigate it more.I have the T-POD G2 QR. I didn't get mine thru Mako, was ordering some other parts from a major vendor and added it to the list.
It will work in a pinch as a bipod, it does not offer near the stability of an Atlas. I have an Atlas on one of my M1A's, I swap it to the 17 if shooting from the bench.
The model your looking at has the "cant and pan" or swivel and tilt ability, mine is cant/tilt only. It has no ability to lock this feature down which is off putting to some users.
I went this route as I intended for the 17s to be mainly used as a carbine but still have the ability to provide a stable platform in a pinch.
If I was looking at a DMR role it would definitely be Atlas.
