Trigger stick mutant

After finding longer shots 150m plus tricky with a tripod and in summer growth the bipod is useless. I got the fifth leg off my viper flex and adapted it to fit my tripod. Handy rear rest if you need to shoot more than 150m or so. Here are some pics incase anybody is interested?

Nice idea but I always found the trigger stick (Gen 3, same as yours) to have too much flex when the legs were pushed out that far (to the point you need to unlock the base for more angle).

The triggerstick is an American design. Their average hunting rifles tend to be lighter as very few bother with moderators, and with the UK you have not only more weight from the moderator, and semi-obligatory Harris bipod, but usually a big scope too. So what you have is a front-end heavy rifle, and they don't work great with a triggerstick.

Saying that, I've managed to get some deer at longer than average range with both triggerstick and Bushwear quad sticks. The latter were a lot more stable and I felt much more certain about my shots.

Why don't you get on with your Viperflex?

I have alway found the viperflex to slow to deploy and generally a pain to use unless your standing. Kneeling or sitting is a good position for me and with that position the trigger sticks don’t need to be in the low leg setting just lowest normal setting. I think quad pods are fine for standing shots but each to his own

Guess it depends on your ground, practise will make the quad sticks faster to deploy vs. Triggerstick.

Finally got round to testing the mutant quite pleased really considering without it I was shooting 1.5moa off straight trigger sticks B047B113-5929-41DD-B973-8FC20082A3CC.jpeg

B&Q quads every time, highly effective, cheap and replaceable! Ignore the GMX copperythingies - expensive experiment!
