Thread: Javelin bipods

    Javelin bipods

    What is everyone's views on javelin bipods? Anyone here using one?, I have just purchased one for my sako 85 with wooden stock on the basis that it's quite a heavy rifle already and a big lump of a Harris would make it heavier. Also I can remove it easily.
    Anyone else's experiences would be interesting.

    Watching with interest I also have a Sako 85 and really see the benefits of a Javelin wanting to add one to my kit list!

    Got one and love it.
    There's still a place for a Harris, but only if I was going to wait out where I needed a bipod the whole time.

    I have them all fitted to my blaser(s) and love them, easy removed when on the sticks and fits in the pocket or bum bag if I need to take a prone shot....

    I'm not a fan of bipods but can definitely see the point of one of these. My Sako 75 (extended wooden stock) never shoots well from bipods & only shoots at all with a very firm grip on the fore end to control the bounce. My idea was to fit the recessed mount into the stock as suggested but with a forward-facing angle to allow me to really dig the feet in to counter the bounce; may do it yet as an experiment.

    This has been done at least twice. I started the first one! Try the advanced search!

    Bought the MK2 long version a couple of weeks ago. Used for zero check only at moment. First impressions are very positive and great to be able to carry in the stalking jacket rather than the weight, unbalancing and "tangle factor" of a permanent harris on the rifle as most of my lowland stalking shots are off sticks or occasionally from high seats. Look forward to some proper testing on the hill on the Scotland trips later in the year.

    Do you have the Blaser specific model with additional modified forend or the standard Javelin - if the latter, how does the magnetic plate attach to the forend? Thanks in advance
