Thread: Hooky eBay Atlas bipod review

  1. #1

    Hooky eBay Atlas bipod review

    Bought one of these on a whim

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3709101876...84.m1439.l2649


    40 shipped to the door
    this one has a pic rail attachment (which I plan to remove and convert but more on that later)

    to be honest I was expecting a flimsy POS copy with poor material choice and plastic all over the place

    What I got was a pleasant surprise

    hard anodised Aluminium construction throughout
    stainless steel fittings,
    multi ball bearing notched leg release (could do with a spot of grease to keep it that way and silent IMO)
    Solid no rattle or slack engagement with legs up or in notches
    looks like brass washers between sliding aspects of leg angle mechanism
    poitive solid spring engagement of leg angle locks
    O-rings on top of legs to stop rain getting into tube assembly when closed and stop any noise/rattle
    deep knurled legs and collars
    even the pic rail tightening screw is a solid metal knob rather than some plastic covered effort and it is not a thread that relies on pulling the opposing jaw in.
    the sliding jaw is dowelled and tapped, the clamp pin is screwed into the sliding jaw and tighted from the stable side. very slick

    only plastic on it is the rubber feet which are also metal covered screw in efforts (rather than the QR atlas versions)
    and one plug under the swivel fitting

    Rather cheekily it has "Atlas Bipod Patented" on the front!

    All in all it looks better made than some of the pressed steel Harris ones I have had in the past

    worth a punt

    Looks good, shame it doesn't have the standard spigot fitting.

    I'm hoping its good, one on the way.

    Although looks like the picatinney rail for the bottom of the stock is going to cost as much as the bipod

    Really?
    surely any bit of rail fixed on will work?

    QD stud to picatinney rail looks to be costing 20+postage, if you want a dedicated rail and remove the stud 25-30 plus postage. Not quite the same cost but close.

    Must say i'm looking forward to it arriving, I talked my brother into buying the real one and its without doubt a great bit of kit but too much money for me 250+

    Should trade members be promoting counterfeit goods?

  7. #7
    eBay has a very strict policy on counterfeit goods

    http://ocsnext.ebay.co.uk/ocs/sc

    I am going on the assumption that if Atlas are not pursuing them and eBay are still allowing them to trade then there is something missing from the patent or trade mark.
    Its not like he is doing one offs

    Not selling, merely observing

    These appear to be a licensed airsoft copy.
