Overview

Bipods are a very important part of precision rifle, and I wouldn’t dream of running a sniper rifle without them. The average consumer or sportsman might not appreciate that, but they make life a lot easier when you are talking about long range shooting. I have been running they same brand and style since about 2005, but I am always on the look out for better. Accu-Tac may finally be able to deliver that.

Accu-Tac bipods are ultra-rugged and overbuilt for durability.

Impression

The Accu-Tac model looks overbuilt, but the lines flow nicely. And being all cut from aluminum, it’s not nearly as heavy as it looks. Every part that locks up does so in an industrial way; no notches full of mud for this bad boy. The adjustments are smooth and quick, but by depressing the release lever you can also set your needed height quietly.

The SR%-QD is a quick-detach design intended for quick installation and removal.

The bipod employs adjustable legs for maximum adaptability.

Price & Availability

The price tag on the SR5-QD bipod I saw is steep at $276, but that is the price of quality. I saw three sets of a similarly priced competing brand break at Mammoth Sniper Challenge, just in my squad. If we are talking about a tactical gun, a lifetime warranty doesn’t help much if you are dead. The company told me on camera that it has had exactly ZERO warranty repair requests of the Accu-Tac model, which is a pretty bold statement. I assure you, we will be durability testing this soon.

Clay had a chance to take a look at Accu-Tac’s products at SHOT Show 2017.

Another nice thing about the Accu-Tac, it will soon have replaceable legs for a change of height should you need it. If winter in Boise keeps up like it has, we will need the 14-inch model soon. Look for this set up in every precision rifle review we do until we break it, or I concede that it is Marine-proof.

    Railroaders are the same…Give them a steel ball and a rubber hammer, they’ll destroy the steel ball in no time !!!

    Put a Marine in a rubber room with a ball bearing and a rock and he’ll break the ball bearing and eat the rock.

    Marineproof? That’s like saying something is firefighter proof in my world. No such thing. Put a naked one in a padded room with 2 bowling balls and they’ll lose one and break the other.
