    I am looking into bipods. I'm going to get the equivalent in each vendor that goes from roughly 13-29", I think they are both a little different than that but pretty close. I am also going to get it with the swivel. I am curious if these bipods are similar or if one is better than the other? I have used the Harris on a buddy's gun and it was pretty nice, but the Caldwell looks the same. Is there a quality difference or what?

    Of the two you mention, the Harris is far better. And the folks at Harris know all about customer service.

    I picked up a Caldwell on sale a few years ago and it works, but is pretty "wobbly" with a rifle with any weight to it.

    I made the mistake of buying a Caldwell and I ended up spending the money on a HARRIS.

    Just buy the HARRIS and be done with it. Nothing ruins a hunt quicker than your rifle falling over because Caldwell is too cheap to put locktite on their screws. Plus I found that the caldwell offering was wobbly and the harris was as solid as a 200 ton granite boulder.

    Safe to say that this has been made an easy decision. All anybody has ever told me is to go with the Harris, but the cheap side of me wanted to get away with a Caldwell. lol But you are all right, just buy the good one and be done with it.
