Shooters Ridge makes a variety of accessories for shooting enthusiasts and hunters. Among their long lineup of accessories is a series of bipods that attach to the swivel stud on the forend of any rifle with a rounded stock. For this review we'll take a look at the Rock Mount bipod in 9"-13" adjustable height.
The Rock Mount line of bipods offers pivoting and non-pivoting models. Pivoting means that the bipod can swivel along the axis of the barrel, not from side to side. As we've noted in other bipod reviews (link to vanguard bipod review), being able to pivot or swivel along the axis of the bore allows the shooter to level out the reticle when taking a long shot on an uneven surface. Shooters Ridge offers four different bipods in various heights: 6"-9" (best for bench work), 9"-13" (best for prone shooting), 13.5"-23" (best for kneeling/seated shooting), and 14.5"-29" (for those that just want a taller bipod). All of these lengths are available in either a pivoting model or non-pivoting. Our review model is a non-pivoting 9"-13" model number 40853.
