***ESTIMATED DISPATCH IS SEPTEMBER 24th*** Unfortunately New Zealand's lockdown has caused a delay on some key bipod components.
ALL ORDERS ARE NOW THE VERSION 2 MODEL
The Backlanz Carbon Bipod is proudly designed and manufactured in New Zealand using only the highest quality components. It’s a massive step forward in engineering giving you all the features you ever wanted in a bipod whilst only weighing 160g (5.6oz).
The Carbon’s main frame is manufactured from Titanium 64 which has over 3 times the strength of steel and is almost half the weight. Using this material allows us to build a superior light weight bipod that just would not be possible with materials like Aluminium.
The legs are manufactured from Carbon Fibre and are extendable from 9 to 13” inches (230 mm to 340 mm) giving you a total ground to barrel clearance of 310mm. The legs have 4 angles of adjustment each including legs stowed forward, 30°, 60°, 90° (legs straight down). Titanium spiked feet are standard with tethered rubber caps.
Our patented spring loaded latching design allows for the bipod to sit on the rifle full time if needed just like a normal bipod would but can be attached and detached quickly at the push of a button without having to remove your sling. Whilst doing all this the spring loaded ball joint connection allows pivoting to compensate for uneven ground and panning for following or shooting at multiple targets.
The Universal Mounting Bracket is designed to fit to most off the shelf hunting rifles without modifications. It is intelligently designed and manufactured to add less than 15 grams of weight to your rifle. Install simply by removing your existing sling stud and replace it with matching threaded ball stud supplied. Your sling will mount directly to the mounting bracket. Got more than one rifle? Simply purchase more mounting brackets.
Please refer to our list below of non-compatible rifles. These rifles will require custom fitting.
Chassis & Bench Stocks
We offer a flat mounting bracket that is compatible with chassis and bench stocks (stocks with a flat surface around the sling attachment point). Bench stocks require an additional hole to be drilled in the stock in addition to your sling attachment point. We recommend that this is installed professionally by a gun smith - click here for details. Please note for chassis's you will have to provide the fixing nuts that sit on the inside of the chassis - we will supply the screws with your order click here for details on chassis mounting brackets. If you require multiples of these brackets please add them to your cart separately.
