Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Get some good quality digital kitchen scales. Some only go to 5kg but that just means you have to remove the scope and the stock and add it all up. You should not have a problem though finding 10kg ones if you dont mind spending a bit more than Kmart ones. Accuracy wise they will be within a gram or...

Re: Loan of a flex pod

Chris I think the idea with the flex pod is to shoot it with some shoulder pressure so not free recoil. Geoff I accept your challenge you filthy Victorian. We might have to fight this duel at the SA Queen’s as I won’t have a barrel till December :D Quick draw at 30 paces with 8.25kg FTR rifle :lol:...

Re: Auspod release

Most scissor type bipods dont go low enough due to the mechanism being in the way, but we went to great extents to make the Auspod go as low as possible. We even cast the bronze bearings so they were exactly as we wanted them and also cast the pins that connect the height adjuster to the legs to ens...

Re: Auspod release

Just ran a tape over mine and it is 570mm when down. Yes the handle is for elevation and the handle at the side which will be an optional extra will be for windage (already started production of handle :D ). Wider could be made to a special order for extra cost (more time involved in one off), but w...

Re: Loan of a flex pod

Thanks.I think success with something like a Flexpod will be very dependant on if you free recoil or not. I cant imagine them working well for free recoil, not consistently anyway.

Re: Loan of a flex pod

A flexing bipod does not sound like a good idea. We went to great length to eliminate flex when designing mine (Auspod).

Re: Auspod release

What I cant a how in the pics is just how solid these are drawing rifle back and forth it is like part of the rifle. The bearings in the rear facing wand mechanism are coned to eliminate play and everything is done with great precision to make the finished product not just very light but seriously s...

Re: Auspod release

Here is the first pic, more later :D The mock handle I am holding is what we are thinking for windage handle. We tried a prototype in this position and it worked great, production windage handle will be similar to the one in the pic. Actually on marine carpet with the pictured rifle it is possible t...

Re: Auspod release

I look forwards to seeing some pics with the windage adjusters fitted. Hi Rod, It wont be in the first pic as we are concentrating on getting the bipod finished, but it will be coming soon. Basically it is a handle that attaches to either left or right leg. We tested one about 6 inches long and it ...

Ok leg part we were waiting on is almost ready, first batch will be (fingers crossed) ready on Friday.
