Warne’s New Bipod Will Hit Stores In September

Warne bipod

Warne, known for their excellent scope mounts, has been busily cranking away on a new bipod design. Jeremy first reported on it last year. We got a look at the latest prototype in Dallas and Warne tells us the finished product is due to hit stores in September.

The rigid design features easy, independent, one-handed five-way adjustment of each leg as well as lockable cant and pan.

The bipod will have a standard QD Picatinny mount or an Arca-Swiss-style clamp. We don’t have a weight for it yet, but it felt comparable to an Atlas.

We were impressed with the extremely solid build quality. Warne’s expecting the bipod to be priced at about $275

    Be interesting to see a head-to-head between this and the new magpul bipod.

      +10. If the Magpul $109 bipod (which will likely have a street price less than half of the Warne) works as advertised, it will upend the market for all but the cheapest bipods.

      Sure, serious F-Class competitors and people who obsess over reducing their groups from 1/2 MOA to 1/4 MOA will keep buying high-end bipods, for the same reason they buy the highest-end glass, Hart barrels, Jewel triggers, etc. But I’ll predict that owners of RPRs or comparable entry-level precision rifles who want something better than a Harris or a Chi-com Atlas clone (but don’t want to drop over $300 on a real Atlas) will buy the Magpul bipods like crazy.

      We’ll see . . . but given their proven ability to read the market and provide what people want at an attractive price, I suspect Magpul’s done their research and may have another winner.

    When I first looked at that top picture my brain for some reason saw a tacticool bolt-action revolver rifle, and just about short-circuited.

      That would be pretty epic.

      Saw the same thing, got just as excited and confused

    Nice. More options the better.

      Yup.

    People love their overpriced bioods. $300 give me a break. Most people won’t break a $70 Harris but think they need a heavy $300 model.

    Can’t spell cant I see . . .

    1. avatar ken says:

      Shouldn’t that be “cant spell”? 🙂

    2. I HATE autocorrect.

    that one looks good and seems somewhat cheaper than the atlas. have used harris that did not have tilt and pan and did not like it hence wanting a good one with tilt and pan

    damn thats nice. movement did seem kind of clunky and restrictive though.

      It’s meant for the competitive shooter, not tacticool shooter.
