Products & Projects: Javelin Lite Bipod

posted on February 26, 2020

Spartan Precision Equipment designed its Javelin Bipod as a lightweight option that can be attached to any rifle system in seconds, thanks to the company's patented Spartan System. This allows shooters to swap bipods between rifles with ease, and it doesn't have the added bulk of many bipods on the market today, nor does it require adding a section of Picatinny rail to a rifle. Now, there's an enhanced variant on the market that saves even more weight: the Javelin Lite bipod.

This new model offers customers a stripped-down version of Spartan's flagship Javelin Bipod at a much reduced price. The Javelin Lite features premium components and construction, but savings are realized by utilizing fixed-length legs and including Spartan’s Universal Rifle Adapter, rather than the multiple adapter set of the standard Javelin. Despite its stripped-down design, there are many enhanced elements that offer versatility to the field user. The bipod offers a locking cant that allows shooters to level their platform on uneven terrain, and a built-in traverse track enables them to track moving targets at distance.

The base of the Javelin Lite bipod is machined from alloy, and the legs are formed from carbon fiber to save weight. Equipped with standard-length legs, the original Javelin Bipod weighs in at 5.22 ozs. With the minimalist construction of the Javelin Lite, that weight is reduced to 4.6 ozs. with standard legs. Shaving weight off your ultralight mountain rifle just got easier, thanks to this new design.

Three leg sizes are available—4.5", 5.7" and 6.8"—and the Lite is compatible with other Spartan Precision components and accessories. Price: $145. Contact: Spartan Precision Equipment; +44 (0)208 0900 585;
