Everything about this bipod says “high-quality” except for the price tag. You pick this bad boy up for less than $50 and yes, it is well worth the money.
Adjustable from 7 to 10.5 inches, TipTop has made a very versatile bipod for the money.
One really nice feature is that the head of this bipod can pan from side to side for quick target acquisition without having to re-adjust the legs of the bipod.
We like it for it’s solid construction as well. It’s a very well built bipod with a useful quick disconnect system. It’s lightweight and strong. Even the finish on this thing is tough – it’s made with a durable black anodized finish that won’t rust or chip easily.
For under $100, this is one of the better bipods you can buy right now.
Ever heard of Ohuhu before? Neither did we but they make a fantastic bipod for AR-15’s. It has foldable arms with spring tension and it just feels really stable when mounted.
It’s made of aluminum so you know it’s going to be light but this bipod is barely noticeable when mounted on my Colt AR.
It’s not bad on the pocketbook either and there are a LOT of positive reviews for this particular AR-15 bipod.

Here’s another top-of-the-line bipod for AR-15 owners. It’s built so solidly that you probably wouldn’t have problems mounting it to a Barrett .50.
Every last feature of this bipod is made to be excellent. For instance, the ADM quick disconnect is very easy to use. The tolerances on this bipod are REALLY tight.
Out of all of the bipods that I’ve ever tried, the Atlas takes the cake in terms of quality and performance.

So What Makes a Great Bipod for Your AR-15?
Well, it all starts with the construction. The less plastic, the better.
Most good bipods will have very few, if any, plastic parts. Look for solid metal and aluminum construction for both weight reduction and strength.
You also want to make sure that the “feet” on the legs of the bipod are made of durable rubber. Some cheap bipods have absolute junk for pads at the bottom of the bipod legs. They wear out quickly, rendering your bipod nearly useless after a few hundred rounds of .223 ammo.
If you want top of the line, look for spring loaded legs as well as the ability to pan from side to side. I can see this feature in particular as being great for hunters.
Closing Thoughts About Bipods
Finding a good bipod for your AR isn’t too easy. There’s lots of bad, low-quality bipods out there that are just plain junk. Our advice is to spend a little bit of money and get one that is going to last and look great for a long time. After all, most of the bipods on this list come in at under $100 and many well below that.
