In the real world of hunting, the chances of the ideal shot opportunity occuring on level ground are slim – using a pivoting bipod allows you to compensate for ground that is unlevel by up to 20º. The Caldwell XLA bipod provides a stable shooting support that conveniently attaches to almost any firearm with a sling swivel stud. The lightweight aluminum design adds minimal weight and deploys quickly, with legs that instantly spring out to the shooting position with the touch of a button. The lower portion of the bipod pivots independently from the upper stock mount, allowing the firearm to be quickly leveled on uneven ground. The legs are notched for easy indexing to a specific height, and there’s a connection point for sling attachment and multisection legs that collapse forward for convenient carrying. Soft rubber feet provide enhanced stability, while the padded bipod base protects the firearm’s forend. The tension knob can be adjusted to control the resistance of the pivoting motion.
