The Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud QD is the next offering in the Magpul bipod line. Designed to mount to the ubiquitous Uncle Mike’s Sling Swivel Stud that is common to nearly every sporting rifle made, the Magpul Bipod – Sling Stud QD is the strongest, most fully featured bipod available with direct sling stud mounting. Offered with a new rapid-attach sling stud mounting system, the Sling Stud QD bipod takes the fuss of aligning and tightening that comes with traditional sling stud-mount bipods out of the equation. The stainless-steel mounting system self-locates and aligns perfectly every time, and an ergonomic thumb wheel allows for excellent grip to ensure easy tightening. Additionally, two sizes of high-durometer rubber mounting gaskets are provided to ensure optimized fit and load distribution on narrow sporter-contour or wider target-style forends. The ability to mount a sling on the forend is maintained with a low-profile sling stud on the rear of the Sling Stud QD mount, which also provides for a quick detachment when it’s needed.
Providing the same premium features available in the existing line of Magpul bipods, the Sling Stud QD bipod provides the high performance associated with higher-priced bipods at a significantly more affordable price for all shooters. Spring-tensioned, Mil-Spec hard anodized 6061-T6 and injection-molded reinforced polymer legs stow neatly forward and snap down and lock into place with one hand. Leg extensions slide and lock securely with the push of a button on any of the seven locking detents, extending from 6.7” to 10.0”. An industry-exclusive 50° of total tilt are controlled by a glove-friendly, knurled, tool-less, bipod locking knob located between the extended legs, allowing easy adjustment between shots. A soft rubber bipod locking knob cap is attached to the locking knob, giving users a steady, non-marring forward rest while the bipod is folded. Additionally, its staggered soft rubber feet hold fast on a variety of shooting surfaces and are easily removed with a roll pin punch. Should users choose to change feet, the Sling Stud QD’s legs accept most Atlas-pattern bipod replaceable feet. The streamlined housing and legs fit neatly under the barrel and are just under 2.3” deep and 3.3” wide when folded.
