i've used bipods in the past and really found them to be an aid to my shooting. i've been looking around and see there are several different types avaliable for the sks rifle. what type of bipod do you use? i'm thinking of going with a steel clamp-on since i've read the zytel bayonet mounted bipods are flimsy and give out over time.

Generally speaking, bipods mounted to the barrel has a tendency cause it to bend & flex. This is not a good thing for accurate and repeated shot placement. Clamp-ons can add even more stress at the point of contact with the barrel.

Best is to mount bipod onto stock and free-float the barrel. -Obviously not worthwhile for an SKS.

The SKS isn't meant to be a precision weapon anyway. I would go with the bayonet mounted one as it'll probably do less harm to the barrel.
