First Look: Warne Skyline Precision Bipod

For most rifle shooters, having a bipod is one of the essential accessories required for a successful precision platform. One of the latest and most-innovative options on the market today is the Warne Skyline Precision Bipod, which is loaded with a number of user-friendly features and built to handle the toughest range and field environments on the planet.

To ensure a tough, durable construction that stands up to all kinds of shooting conditions, the Warne Skyline Precision Bipod is constructed from a carefully considered combination of 6061-T6, 7075-T6 and multiple steel components. Each element in the bipod is considered in terms of how much overall stress and punishment it'll take, and the company reinforced these high-stress components with all-steel parts to ensure its durability. Other components are constructed from strengthened aluminum to provide users with a perfect balance of strength and light weight. Altogether, the bipod weighs in at 19 ounces.

In addition to durability, Warne also considered user-friendliness to be one of the critical components of a solid bipod, so the Skyline Precision Bipod can be adjusted easily with a single hand, allowing rifle shooters to stay mounted on their gun while changing elevation, angle, cant and panning. The bipod mounts to any standard Picatinny or Weaver accessory rail and features five separate positions for each leg, allowing users to compensate for uneven terrain. The legs extend from a minimum height of 6.9 inches up to a maximum height of 9.1 inches. For further flexibility, the unit includes an attachment mechanism that allow for cant and panning, with a total cant range of 22 degrees and a panning range of 44 degrees.

In addition to all of these features found in the patent-pending design of the Warne Skyline Precision Bipod, the company also provides a number of accessories sold separately. Both spiked and claw-style feet are available, as well as a 3-inch leg extention and a sling-swivel accessory rail. Warne also promises that an Arca Swiss Rail model of the bipod will be available as well. Each Skyline Precision Bipod is made in the USA, and the suggested retail price on the unit is $379.99.
