I keep getting asked about our Støtteben bipod so it must be time to make another run of 25. For those of you who have not seen one, the Støtteben has a proven track record and is in use by multiple national teams and is well represented within the F Class league.

The SHED Støtteben bipod is manufactured from 6082 T6, A4 and 316 stainless with some Nylon washers thrown in for good measure so it is not going to rust!

This tried and tested super wide and super light F/TR bipod is the evolution of the original SHED ‘Plain’ bipod and is lighter, wider and sleeker, it has many new features such as the T Nut assembly and has a second fixing which is an M6 grub screw designed to screw into a dimple in the rail to give a second locking point and also act as a recoil lug, this means the bipod is always returned to the same position on the rifle when it is fitted. The elevation screw pitch has been reduced to give finer elevation control yet still with the left/right hand thread system so no more winding for 10 minutes to get the height you need. The feet are wider with added radiuses to give even tracking regardless of the width the bipod is set to.

Finish is vapour hone with hard anodising so a very flat black without any shiny bits to reflect light. The leg sections from the elevation fixings to the head are solid sided to give maximum rigidity and triangulation and this also gives somewhere to put the name of the bipod ‘Støtteben’ Which for those of you who do not read Danish means stabiliser. Støtteben are the stabiliser wheels children have fitted to their bicycles so now you know.

Vital Statistics:

Main bipod assembly: 6082 T6 aluminium.
Finish: Vapour honed and black anodised surfaces.
Screws: A4 Stainless Steel.
Elevations shaft: Stainless Steel
Elevation nuts: 316 stainless steel
Weight: Approximately 610 grams
Weight with optional toggle locks fitted: Approximately 674 grams
Weight of optional toggle lock 32 grams (1.15 Ozs)
Maximum recommended width: 785,0mm (31 Inches)
Maximum recommended height: 380,0mm (13.5 Inches)

Accompanying the bipod is a spares/options kit comprising of:

1x Elevation nut retaining clip.
1x Toggle lock and washer.

Price for the latest iteration MkV of the Støtteben will be £295.00 with the new version featuring some minor tweaks to improve tracking and aesthetics. Price for advance orders will be £265.00 and the bipods will be available Q4/2019

I have been promised a back end from an RPR a couple of times to use as a template for the plate however they never materialise so I am no closer.

Does your bipod MkV work with the Ruger Precision 6.5 Creedmoor. How does it attach is attached like a Harris bipod or does it fit to the top of the shroud with a Mlok fitting.
Do you have pictures of them fitted to a rifle.

The bipod attaches to Anschutz type rails. I am not familiar with the front end of the RPR so if you can post or email me a picture I can confirm either way.
