I have a gen2 primos bipod and when deployed for HFT, they are too wide and slide on the terrain because of the wide stance.

I am wondering if anyone has tried successfully to shorten the length to primos gen 1 short bipod sticks...

Thank you

add some 3/4" PVC pipe and some rubber chair protectors. I think it was Scott (motorhead) that came up with this. I have one made up for hunter class FT and it works great. Don

There is a post (on the GTA I think) where you can clamp a collar on the very top of your legs so they do not splay out when in use. The Gen I had the stop built into them and that is why they are considered the best.

I have a set of Gen 2 (I use my Gen I (I bought the last two sets available anywhere.)) that are just about the right height but the legs splay out.

When I started in FT I made a set of sticks and they work find.

When I bought the Gen II (extra Cabela's points) I adjusted the legs to match the height of the Gen II to the same as the legs I made.

Then I connected the legs with a length of chain (hose clamps) so the legs could not splay outwards.

I have complained to PRIMOS about the Gen II (I do not think the Gen III corrected this problem) and suggested they make a short run of Gen I sticks and advertise them on the airgun forums.

They will sell out immediately, IMHO

They still seem too wide and unstable.
