FAB Defense introduced its AR Podium at SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. The AR Podium changes the bipod position by incorporating the bipod into the pistol grip of the rifle.
The AR Podium moves the fulcrum point back to just forward of the pistol grip. Urban fighting situations require the shooter to engage targets at increased angles because of buildings, structures and other obstacles.
The AR Podium enables users to install a steady bipod on the gun without adding front-end weight and saves valuable rail space. Installation is quick and easy, no gunsmithing required. The bipod is easily deployed with the main shooting hand with the push of a button, without having to alter the grip on the weapon or lose sight of the target. Plus, the AR Podium includes the AGR-43 pistol grip. The AR-Podium total weight comes in at 12.6 ounces.
The ergonomic design won't snag on clothing, webbing or other materials. It is made of lightweight and durable high-end reinforced polymer composite. The compact design saves valuable rail space for additional mounting options and is available in matte black, olive drab green or flat dark earth. The suggested retail price is $124.80.
