just my opinion. take for what its worth
I agree. I would hold out for a quality bipod if you must have one. I don't really like bipods though.
I also agree that getting a 20 round mag or two for bench shooting is a good idea. I have a couple old Colt 20 rounders that I picked up at a pawn shop pretty cheap. Replaced the followers and springs, even though they were functioning fine. Makes bench shooting a lot more comfortable, but I use sand bags.
If your barrel isn't floated, and the bipod mounted on a good rigid free float hand guard, you may not get the best accuracy that you can get, due to more difficulty in getting pressure consistent on the barrel.
