First Look: MDT GRND-Pod Bipod

MDT offers the GRND-Pod bipod for long-range shooters looking for a more stable platform.

posted on February 23, 2022

Creating a stable shooting platform is an absolutely essential part of making hits at long range. It doesn't matter if you're military or law enforcement performing overwatch, a hunter out in the field or a competitor in a precision-rifle match, your gun needs to be rock-solid stable when you press the trigger.

This is why so many long-range shooters rely on bipods to create a secure firing position. A bipod gives more points of contact with your environment and lets you rest the weight of your gun on the earth itself or other non-moving object, dramatically reducing the amount of rifle movement and helping you make the shot.

The MDT GRND-Pod (pronounced "Ground-Pod") was developed by MDT  for the shooter who wants a stable and secure shooting platform, but one available for purchase without breaking the bank. The MDT GRND-Pod is designed to adapt to either a Picatinny or RRS Dovetail/ARCA mounting interface and offers shooters a one-handed adjustable height range from 4.5 inches to 9 inches, with 4-locking positions in the 0 degree, 50 degree, 90 degree and 180 degree positions. The MDT GRND-Pod legs are also Atlas/Ckye-Pod foot compatible and can be fully extended just by pulling down on the legs in any position.
