Caldwell’s New Pic Rail XLA Bipod

Caldwell BIpod

Caldwell Shooting Supplies is now offering an affordable line of bipods that are designed to attach to your rifle’s Picatinny rail. This makes them well suited for a large number of AR style rifles that are on the market today.

Two different versions of the bipod are available. One is smaller with a 6-9″ adjustment range, while the second is larger with a range of 9″-13″. Both models are made with aluminum legs that the company states help keep the overall weight to a minimum. The legs have soft rubber caps, or feet, to help provide stability. The legs are spring loaded and have lock out knobs.

Both models attach to a Picatinny rail using a cam system with a lever. This should provide a very stable mount and offer the ability to remove the unit quickly if it is not needed.

The shorter of the two bipods has a suggested retail price of $44.99. The larger of the two is $5 more expensive.

For anyone who tries to keep up with who owns who, Caldwell is a brand owned by Battenfeld Technologies. Battenfeld Technologies is a company owned by American Outdoor Brands. American Outdoor Brands is formerly known as Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation and owns brands that include Smith & Wesson and Crimson Trace.

    Who has picatinny rail on the bottom anymore? They ought to make an MLOK and Keymod mount since they are the two most common systems.

      I do,it’s a great spot really . The side folding one remind me too much of a famas. Plus picatinny arsenal is u.s defense , anything they develop will be used often . Tis my only reason sticking with.

      I do too, with my Daniel Defense free-float hand guard, the sort that bolts on without having to remove the barrel nut.

      I do as well. At least on one rifle. It has a foregrip and bipod attached to it.
