Magpul MOE Bipod

Three years after Magpul launched the first version of its adjustable bipod line, the company announced a new iteration with the MOE bipod, coming soon in 2022. Similar in function and construction to the previous versions, the MOE bipod has independently moving legs and is constructed from stainless steel internals, 6061 T-6 aluminum and a reinforced polymer skin.

Yet unlike the previous versions of the Magpul bipod design, the MOE is nearly 40 percent lighter with a total weight of just 8 ozs. Its mounting point is also redesigned from attaching to Picatinny, MLOK and other tactical interfaces for more traditional sling swivel studs. This mounting system includes an over-molded and non-marring saddle, which fits against a wide variety of fore-ends. The mount itself uses self locating, stainless-steel clasps that attach to the stud, which are easily tightened through the use of a large thumb wheel at the bottom of the housing.

On top of its light weight, the MOE bipod is fairly compact, with a stack height of just 1.73" with the legs stowed. The legs of the MOE bipod are easily deployed without the need for depressing a button, and lock in place when pulled into the downward position. Each leg can be independently adjusted from a height of 7" to 10" through the the press of a button and seven 0.5" spaced adjustment detents.

The bottom of the legs come topped with non-slip rubberized feet, which are removable and compatible with existing Atlas bipod aftermarket feet as well. As an added feature, the MOE bipod also has a spot on the back fcae to attach an additional sling stud, to allow continued use of a sling even with the bipod attached to the stud on the host rifle.
