Now Available in Regular or Notched Legs!
Pictured are 1A2 (left) and S-Type Pivoting (actually its Canting or Side-to-Side Tipping)
Harris Bipod ClonesNearly Identical to Harris Bipods 1A2 and S-Type Bipods.
Now in 12 New Models, these Harris Clone rifle bipods look and function almost identically to the famous Harris Bipod models 1A2BR, 1A2L and 1A2H (see Harris Bipods)... Regular and "S" models! The metal looks the same thickness. They weigh the same. They fold out of the way the same. The legs adjust and lock their length the same. There are some differences in the cosmetics of the screw heads, but otherwise they seem like the same thing only for a lot less money. (Note: Specific differences are described below... please scroll down)
Available in the original and new pivoting S-Type models in the most popular heights for bench rest and field shooting positions. The pivoting model allows tipping your rifle side to side to allow leveling your crosshairs even when the bipod rests on uneven ground.

201-379852 Caldwell XLA Bipod Notched Legs 6-9"
Regular vs. Notched Adjustable Legs
Like the Harris Bipods, "Regular" adjustable legs snap lock at full length or can be friction locked at any length in between. "Notched" legs snap lock at full length or can be locked at each notch position in between. The military prefers the notched legs but we sell equal numbers of both for sporting customers.
Bipod Adaptors for All Rifles
Like the Harris Bipods, the Clones attach to a standard swivel stud in your forend. 99% of these use a standard swivel stud, but we also have a bunch of specialized adaptors at our Harris Bipod Page.
| The Harris and Caldwell
"S" type bipods allow you to tilt or cant your rifle side to side to level
your crosshairs. It's a great system. However, the friction tensioning knob
is hard to adjust with your fingers.
|| Our new S-Lever Tension Lever is an
economical replacement for the friction tensioning knob to give you much
better control and leverage.
Pictured far left is the standard S-type bipod. next to it is the same type of bipod with an S-Lever installed. The S-Lever can also be released and re-positioned after you've adjusted it. Made of fiber reinforced nylon (just like the Pod-Loc™), the S-Lever is designed to flex or break off if it gets over tightened or hung up on something in the field.
The Harris S-Lever installs on "S" type Harris and XLA bipods.
Unscrew the friction nut and replace it with an S-Lever, complete instructions included... Order Your's Today!

Harris Bipod Clones vs. Harris Brand
The original 1A2 and S-Type Harris brand bipods and the clone copies are almost identical but there are some differences. The Harris Bipods have some differences in the screw head styles, screw thread pitches, and the way the springs attach to the bipod body.
|The Harris Bipods S-Type (self canting) bipod has a unique friction mechanism. This is important to know if you intend to install our Pod-Loc lever... The Pod-Loc only works on the Harris brand Series S-Type bipods. BUT, we also have the Harris/Caldwell XLA S-Lever for Bipods.|
Solid, Retractable Buttstock Rest with Elevation Adjustment.
This device attaches to your rear swivel and screws up and down to adjust elevation while shooting from a bipod. The adjustment is so fine and rock solid! Watch your crosshairs move onto the target as you screw the Butt-Pod up or down... This will definitely spoil you!
| The manufacturers refer to the S-Type Harris Bipods and Harris Bipod Clones
as "Pivoting" but really what they do is allow the rifle to Cant
or Tip from side to side so you can level your crosshairs. If your crosshairs
are canted off-level even a little bit, they can throw off your point of impact.
That's because your rifle was sighted in to allow for an up and down trajectory.
If you tip or cant the rifle off level, the sights won't be lined up with the
trajectory... Which is level.
The S-Type Harris Bipods and Harris Bipod Clones allow you to Cant or tip your rifle side to side under friction tension so you can level your crosshairs and shoot most accurately. See our Scope Level for more on this subject.
