Get a Harris with the Alamo Four Star DLOC/SARGE set up. Available at Alamo four star website. Great set up. Been running mine for about 4-5 months and it's held up well.

Harris "S" model (swivel) has been excellent on uneven surfaces for me and is a quality product that can always be resold for darn near new retail down the road.

I speak from experience after trying to purchase a used one on e-bay, only to find that I could get a new one on sale from Midway for about $10 more.

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/206805/harris-s-l-bipod-sling-swivel-stud-mount-9-to-13-black

Mine is the 9-13" length but 6-9" is also on sale.

Hope you are taking the max. length magazine that you'll be using into account when you decide on the length of your bipod.

Default Just a Guess

That is one really good question magnum05!

As best I could determine from spending my Thanksgiving evening doing internet research, the best I could come up with was that "swivel" and "hinged" are two different terms for the same Harris bipod function?

A partial description as an example from Midway:

Swivel Models
•These are the models with S in the designation
Hinged base has tension adjustment and buffer springs to eliminate tremor or looseness
•Available for all models except H models

Someone may have the correct answer if that isn't right and I'd like to know as well.

The "S" models lean side to side so that you can lean the rifle 90' vertically while on an uneven surface.

"Series "S": Swivels to either side for instant leveling on uneven ground. Hinged base has tension adjustment and buffer springs to eliminate tremor or looseness. They are otherwise similar to non-rotating Series. Available for ALL models except the "H" model."
