A few months ago I was looking for a way to attach my bipod to the rail on my weapon. After much discussion I decided to try the TRAMP. Someone on here ask for feedback after I had it set up so here is what I know so far.

Badger advertises this for a Harris bipod to attach to a Badger rail. But the truth is any bipod will fit it and it will attach to any standard 1913 Picatinny rail. I happen to be using a Harris and a Badger rail.

The TRAMP allows you to install the bipod in seconds and take it off even faster. I'm talking 2-3 seconds. It has two tabs you pull with your finger tips, slide it down the rail freely, then release and its locked into place. I've never used anything more user friendly. This was one of my goals to have easy on and off. I cut an extra spot in the foam of my case for the bipod and it is now a quick option that is always with the rifle.

It is very stable front to back. Now for the bad. It has slack side to side because of the loose fit required for easy on and off. It is not much but it is definitely there. When you load the bipod all slack is taken up and it is solid all the way around. Hope this helps some make decisions for or against. Pics in a minute. Will be shooting later today and will add any needed comments.

In the case. Don't laugh at my poor attempt to cut the foam. I should have done some research before hacking on it and outlining with a red sharpie.

Thanks for sharing up

The slack, do you mean it has yaw on the connection to the stock? (look at an airplane pitch, roll and yaw if that didn't make sense).

One negative I see is that it makes your stock forearm another what 1/2" to 3/4" higher? But that is probably not a problem for most shooters. And what does it weigh?







Spozed to use white chalk to outline your foam cuts. grin

Looks like .185 lbs from the info I can gather. Not sure about roll and yaw but its side to side. As in the anti-cant will float line to line when the bipod is not under load.

Going to order more foam and try again. This one has been cut out for a couple of different scopes already and a different bipod adapter.

The slight height gain doesn't bother me but then again I am just now heading out to shoot. We will see.

That would be cant (roll). So is there slack somewhere causing that or do you will tightening the nut fix it?

Everything is tight. The slack is between the TRAMP and The rail.

27 shots fired. Terrible groups. Nothing to report.

How would the rifle have shot with the bipod mounted straight to the swivel stud?

There is not a stud to mount it to. The rifle is capable of .25 MOA in my hands. Today I had nothing under .5
