Although the Warne name is best known for scope rings, the company has branched out into other products, including an all-metal bipod. The U.S.-made Skyline Precision Bipod, machined from aluminum and then hard-coat anodized, weighs in at 16.5 ozs. Once attached to a Picatinny or Weaver rail with the locking throw lever, a thumbwheel secures the ball-and-socket fitting that allows for 22° of cant and 44° of tilt. Notched legs can be deployed quickly and, with the press of a lever, retracted either incrementally or all at once to adjust the unit’s height from 6.9" to 9.1". Thumb buttons allow the legs to be rotated to locking notches at the 0°, 45° or 90° positions. Removable rubber feet can be replaced with optional spikes or claws, and 3" leg extensions and a sling swivel accessory rail are available.
