The V8 series is our original and standard Atlas Bipod that initially brought the patented Atlas features of preloaded Pan and Cant with the five, independent leg positions — including the novel, independent 45º leg positions — to the market.
When under review for selection of the USSOCOM Precision Sniper Rifle system, we received feedback from the military testing about the V8. In response to that feedback, we made changes and in doing so, created the Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR) Atlas Bipod. The main changes include:
- Non-rotating Outer Legs: a set screw inside the outer leg runs in a channel machined into the inner leg preventing rotation of the outer leg
- Fore and Aft Pivot Limiting Bosses: two pegs on the front and back of the base helps to keep the muzzle level with loading a rifle to the bipod and reducing flexibility
- Stronger Inner Legs: width of the inner leg head is 5/8″ instead of 1/2″ and constructed from 7075-T6 aluminum instead of 6061-T6 aluminum making it an estimated 40% stronger
- Ergonomical Position Buttons: diameter of the position button is 0.5″ instead of 0.36″ to aide in manipulation and adjustment of independent leg positions.
The PSR series is our upgraded, contract awarded Atlas Bipod that met and exceeded the USSOCOM Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR) requirement. It is the hard use bipod of choice for professionals globally that need reliable support in a dynamic world.
Both models still include 30 degrees of preloaded Pan and 30 degrees of preloaded Cant, as well as the five leg positions at 0, 45, 90, 135 and 180 degrees.
