Telescoping Bipod is spring loaded and made out of aircraft grade aluminium. Awesome upgrade for the Sniper. The legs fold when not in use. The legs extend from 6" to 9". This Bipod will fit the BT-16 Combat Barrels, The Trinity Combat Barrels, and the UFD 16" Combat Barrels.
The Ultimate Fusion Designs A-5 Telescoping Bipod is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Spyder Extra with C02 hose, VL hopper and a extreme rage harness
Doesn't attatch on all guns
Breaks if shot
This is a terrible type of bipod. I had it on my old gun, and all it did was add weight. It pointed down, so you could only shoot it if you set it on a highish base and still you could only hit someones feet, which doesnt hurt at all. It eventually, after frequent attempts at use, was set on a 6 foot toppled tree with me on a 4 foot tree and was shot and the leg snapped in half. Totally ineffective.
-Solid firing platform when in prone position
-Folds up when not in use
-Makes a "ping" noise when released
-Time consuming to retract legs into folded position
This is a great product if you're a camper. It provides a solid and stable firing platform when shooting from the prone position or when firing a window.
Although it doesn't fit on all barrels, you can get an adaptor to allow it to fit on a barrel.
If you have a marker with picatinny (weaver) rails on the barrel, then it will slide on and lock into place with little hassle. Also, if you're setting it on uneven ground, the legs can adjust to different lengths for a better positioned and steady shot.
When not in use, the legs retract and fold towards the front of the marker. Although this is a little time consuming, it's well worth the effort after the springs are broken in.
I recommend this product to anyone who considers themself to be a sniper, mainly because it takes the stress off of holding the marker up with your hand for a more steady firing position.
