I liked the Atlas' low-profile design and multi-tilt angle capability. The rifle could be traversed farther than my body would allow without moving, which is a great feature for mobile targets and fast-moving environments.

A spring-loaded button near the top of the legs allows each to be folded forward, rearward, at angles or down. Leg-length adjustments are accessed via spring-loaded sleeves near the top. This design allows for easy cleaning in dusty environments. This test provided my first exposure to the Atlas bipod, but I have already ordered one for future use.

The company has placed its bipods in the hands of many of our currently deployed snipers and has enjoyed positive feedback from all quarters.
