    Ok folks... getting ready to finish out my savage build with an anschutz rail.

    I want a bipod, quality, stable, and able to tilt, that will attach directly to the rail vs. an adapter (either sticking off an handstop like the versa's do, or a sling swivel adapter or picatinny rail adapter) that would be installed in the rail.

    Any suggestions?

    Trying to avoid going that route. To me, nothing looks as bad as a bolted on pic rail on a laminate stock. Before I go that route, I'd go with a sling swivel rail accessory so I can mount anything that goes on a swivel.

    May end up going with a Parker Hale handstop/bipod mount.

    OK. Finding an Anschutz specific bipod is tough.

    There's a couple options..

    Versa pod makes a handstop that has a bipod mount on it.. you slide the handstop forward to use the bipod, and keep it back to use it as a handstop.. Though it's still an adapter.

    I recently purchased an Atlas bipod. It's the model that clamps to a picatinny rail. It is very solid, functions smoothly and seems a big step up from a Harris which it should be given the price. Also U.S. made (I believe). I liked the rail clamp model so that I could readily swap it between a few rifles.
    I wish I had seen that add-on noted in #2 since it looks like it would have been a lower cost alternative for the Tikka (well Sako) branded part I had to buy to install such a rail on my Sporter. Waaay more money going with the Finland made part.
