Best Bipod For Scar 17 – Reviews w/FAQs

Let’s see some of the best available bipods for Scar 17.

Best Scar 17 Bipod – [Editor’s Pick]

1. Accu-Shot BT46-LW17 PSR Atlas Bipod with ADM-170-S

BT-46 Atlas can be mounted in any 1913-style Weaver mounting rails. Made for guns with heavy recoil, this thing can easily tackle a Scar 17.

Plastic bipods won’t be able to handle the pressure of an automatic rifle. That’s why Accu-shot went with 6061-T6 aluminum. It’s a durable aluminum that is used in rifles and riflescopes as well. If you are concerned about durability, don’t worry about that.

As this is made in the USA, it will also have a good warranty as well. You will get instant replacements and clear communication thanks to good customer service.

How tall is this?

It can go up to 9” in height and starts at 4.75”. It has more than enough height to hunt both upstream and downstream.

How many leg position does this bipod support?

It supports 5 different leg positions. 0, 45, 90, 135 & 180 degrees. It got you covered in any angle or direction you want to shoot at.

Is this too heavy to carry around?

The weight of this bipod is around 13.6 ounces. It’s not over the top. For an aluminum bipod, this much of weight is more than acceptable.

2. Magpul Rifle Bipod for Hunting and Shooting

Magupul’s rifle bipod took the retro look to a new level. Finished with a Khaki color, this bipod is made to last. It can take hits of an automatic rifle with ease.

Magpul went with double materials to make this bipod. Instead of sticking with aluminum only like most other bipods, they also used polymer to keep the weight of down. Don’t worry, polymer is not a bad component at all. And most of the bipod is still made out of aluminum anyway.

Easily loaded with forward stabilizing tension, you can hunt without fear or tension of missing shots or getting a kickback on your face.

It’s also available in 4 different styles. M-LOK, Picatinny 1913, A.R.M.S 17s Style, and Stud QD. Yes, it supports the Scar 17 as well. Wouldn’t be including this otherwise.

Will it handle a .300 mag?

.300 may be a tough ask for this. But it can handle G3 size, and AR-10 size with ease.

Is it made in China?

Nope. From design to manufacturing to shipping, everything is done in the USA. That’s why you will get excellent customer service as well.

Is this available in other color?

Unfortunately, it’s only available in two colors. Black and FDE.

3. Harris Engineering S-BR Hinged Base 6 – 9-Inch Bipod

This got to be the most sci-fi-looking bipod we have here. The first thing that comes to mind is, how does it work? Or does it work at all? Ha-ha, it does indeed work. And guess what? It works better than most other bipods in the same price range.

Made out of aluminum and loaded with springs, this is what peak performance looks like. Well, I am exaggerating a bit. Truth be told, it’s one of the best 9” bipods you could buy right now. From a build quality perspective, there is no flaw in the structure. Anodization is also on point.

Made in the USA, customer service is as good as it can get. Communication is the key to good harmony. Thankfully Harris Engineering also agrees with this motto. If your unit has any QC issues or missing parts, make sure to contact them immediately. They will get back to you instantly.

Is this the Swivel model?

Yes, this thing has a swivel feature. Pretty neat feature to have to be honest.

What is the difference between S-BR and BRM?

BRM features notched legs while S-BR doesn’t feature that. Otherwise, both of them are the same thing.

Can I mount it on a Mini 14?

While we are here for the Scar 17, but this is also one of the most asked questions regarding this bipod. Yes, you can mount it on a Mini 14. You can mount it on most AR or semi-automatic rifles as well. It can take a hit.

4. Zeadio 6-9 Inches Carbon Fiber Tactical Bipod

Zeadio bipod is one of the cheapest bipods on the market that doesn’t compromise quality. Cheap bipods tend to be made out of plastic completely. That can hinder the quality and performance of the bipod. Thankfully, that’s not the case here.

As the name suggests, this bipod is made from carbon fiber completely. A durable and lightweight material. You don’t see this often in bipods due to how much it can cost. Zeadio had to pull some serious craftsmanship to give this quality of work at this price point.

It’s light, strong, and much more durable than steel. It also has a built-in sling mount. Unfortunately, this is the non-tilt model. You can’t tilt the angle of the bipod.

As the arms of this bipod are foldable, Zeadio added a position lock lever to help you lock the position of the bipod. It won’t move from the locked position.

How tall is this bipod?

The maximum height of this bipod is 9”. Minimum height is 6”. You can set any measurements between 6 to 9”.

What kind of rail does Zeadio support?

It comes with a 20mm mounting ring that supports both Picatinny and Weaver rails.

Will this work with a crossbow?

It will work with anything that has a Picatinny rail. If your crossbow has a bottom Picatinny rail, it will fit your crossbow.

5. GG&G Tactical Bipod Stand W/Swivel

Finding a good Scar 17 bipod is not an easy task. On top of that, if you are asking for a Swivel Bipod stand for Scar 17, that’s even harder. Well, making hard tasks easier is what we do best.

GG&G tactical bipod stand comes with a swivel gun stock. Something we came to appreciate as time went by. Swiveling around any time you want without having to move your entire setup is a blessing in disguise.

Made from durable aluminum, it can fit even a .338 cal if you are feeling courageous. While it’s a bit lightweight for .50 or heavy calibers, it can work with Scar 17 flawlessly. Of course, your Scar needs to have a bottom-firing Picatinny rail.

Is this a heavy-duty product?

I wouldn’t call it heavy-duty. It can take low to medium calibers, but I wouldn’t take it as a heavyweight champion.

Does this support any guns?

As long as you have a Picatinny rail on the bottom of your gun, it will support your gun.


Scar 17 is a great gun for hunting and it deserves all the loving you are giving it. A bipod treatment will only make you love the gun even more. With the right scope on top and a bipod on the bot, your hunting will be a bliss to enjoy.

Depending on how much are you willing to spend, you could grab either of the bipods from above and call it a day. You will get top quality and performance from all the bipods mentioned.
