Atlas Bipod BT10-LW17 with ADM 170-S Lever Mounts are popular around these parts. Plenty of accessories are available, extensions, feet etc...

Thank you. Looking at their website it doesn't look like they have any bipods that attach to a swivel stud? Or am I looking right by them? The A3G doesn't have a rail just a swivel stud.

That's odd a friend and member fnnutz uses one on his FNAR -rail- and X-Bolt -no rail- I'll have to inquire how he adapted for the bolt gun's swivel since I don't pay much attention to his rig when I'm shooting. But I can't argue that Harris makes a great solution for a bolt gun too.

Nice rifle btw.

I see you can get one version which will accept any 17S adapter but I'm not finding any 170-S swivel stud adapters yet.

I can tell you this and the same suggestion is echoed in other's post, the Harris is a very well built bipod and would be a much lighter solution since the Atlas is built like a tank. If you still wish to pursue the Atlas product I will talk to my friend tomorrow, right now I believe he is fishing....in a freakin' downpour.

True story. Looking at Harris bipods now. Thanks for all the help.

I drilled my stock, used T-nuts and installed a Seekings SRS rail on my A5m so I could use an Atlas (just got from Stryker). The Atlas is actually lighter than the Harris, but with the addition of the rail, I probably come out even.

Does your A3g have 2 sling swivel studs? If so, you don't even need to drill your stock, just unscrew them and install this: SRS Rail, McMillan 3.0" Hole Spacing - Rail Accessories - Parts & Accessories

It comes with the screws you need.

As to Harris vs. Atlas, I'm getting rid of my Harris. The Atlas is a lot more flexible bipod (i.e. many more ways you can lock the legs, panning ability, load it easier, easily change out feet and add leg extensions)

There's the Harris on my A5m (it's the 6-9 BRM-S and I added a pod-lock to it and will probably be selling it soon)

This is a very informative and most helpful post. I am surprised to hear the Atlas is actually lighter than the Harris but that's welcome news too. The Atlas is a VERY flexible bipod, as you say Dan, my friend has the extensions and all the feet which makes it even more flexible. I have a Harris on my Model 70 but will eventually get an Atlas for my 16s, just for target shhoting though. Thanks for posting this Dan...:?

Harris is made of steel. Atlas is mostly Aluminum.

Harris is a busy bipod. Lots of parts and springs etc. They work, nothing wrong with them.

Your choice, what you want to do.

Great info. Yes it has dual swivel studs.
