I'm thinking about getting a bipod, but considering the miriad of makes and models currently available (the local Wal Mart is peddling what appears to be a low end Blackhawk line) I'm not sure what's worth looking at and what should be ignored. I would like something adjustable(not sure on length), mounts to a sling swivel stud and is easy to transfer from one rifle to another.
Any suggestions? Or, ones to stay away from?

Buy a Harris swivel notched leg and be done.

A 6-9" would be good for shooitng off a table or prone. I thought I needed a 13" when I first started out. I don't know what a 13" bipod is for but it sure isn't anything I do...

Shooters ridge makes good copies of the harris models if you dont want to spend that much. If you want the best, just buy a harris.

Harris S-LM 9-13". I have used several of that model on both hunting and social rifles with excellent result. The 6" version is too short for my purposes, and when I bench rest/test for zero confirmation I always use a set of bench bags instead of a bipod.
Try tying a short section of para cord between the foot pads so you can deploy the bipod very quickly with only one hand; it will speed things up when getting into position.
