Tac Shield Pivoting Bipod

One of the simplest ways to stabilize your rifle on the bench, from prone or out in the field is with an attached bipod. Earlier this year, Tac Shield introduced a new line of swing-swivel-mounted bipods to complement the company's existing line of slings, belts, pouches and other tactical gear.

All bipods are constructed of high-grade aluminum and have a durable matte finish. Precision tension leg-locks, swivel stud attachment and spring-assisted leg retraction also come standard, and some models feature a pivoting attachment point that allows the bipod to be fine-tuned for precision shooting when needed.

The adjustable legs pull out to their extended length and retract at the push of a button. The pivot attachment is a large lever rotated counter-clockwise to loosen, which allows the attachment to rotate approximately 15 degrees off center either left or right. This is approximately enough rotation so that the rifle would be level if one leg were extended and the other retracted—as might be needed on uneven terrain.

MSRP: $42.99 for the 6- to 9-inch adjustable, pivoting bipod shown. Prices vary from $39.99 for the 6 to 9 inch standard bipod to $53.99 for the 11- to 13-inch adjustable, pivoting bipod.

Solving Issues with Brass Casings

Recently, while shooting a Norinco SKS, I experienced a failure to go into battery. Upon removing the cartridge, I found the round to be “shrouded” by another brass casing.
