    I decided to take a chance and order one of these based on several You Tube comparisons. Along with the fact I have always felt that Atlas Bipods were way overpriced for what they are. It came the other day, and on first inspection I must say I'm very pleased with the overall quality. The plated finish seems very durable. The threads and screws, along with the rail attachment point and legs all tightened up very securely.

    I won't know for sure how well it's going to deliver until I mount it on a rifle, and get it out to the range for a good workout. That will probably happen next week some time. I have several AR's I can mount it on. Most likely one of my scoped Colt's or Bushmasters. If they run as well as they look, I'm going to buy several more. For $ 43.00 each they are a good deal. Certainly better than paying over $ 250.00 for an original Atlas. I can't gas up my truck for $ 43.00 these days.

    How do you know it was "Made In China"? I don't. It doesn't say it anywhere on any of the Amazon links, or anywhere on the box when I received it. Nor is it stamped "China" anywhere on the unit.

    When the legs snap, it will sound curiously like a fortune cookie

    I'm fully with that on most things, but a bipod costing $200+? F@ck no! I'll slap a $30 Caldwell on and call it a day.

    I guess I'm just not tactical ninja enough to require a $200 piece of metal to support my rifle while I shoot from the bench.
