I have the Harris LM-S on my XL7, but that is used mostly for target practice. In many typical hunting applications, 13 inches is not high enough to get you above the vegetation. Shooting sticks are my preferred rests for hunting. I have made some out of found arrows and string or tape. I have the foldable safari sticks that work well and are convenient. ***** Willows also make great improvised shooting sticks.GJinNY said:I was at the gun shop recently and noticed a bi-pod made of two hunting arrow shafts. I had an idea that I havent put together just yet but I have two old aluminum arrow shafts that I will dip the fletching ends into some black "hand tool grip coating" a few times down about 4" and let dry.
Then drill a hole through both shafts just passed the coating and run a bolt through both so it can "scissor". A velcro strap can hold the bi-pod to the gun while waiting for varmints. Won't cost me much. It should look something like this when done: except legs wont shorten.
Used the Rust-o-leum CAMO paints. Used Cedar branches as the pattern.GJinNY said:Nice camo job on there too. What paint product is that? I have a XL7 i'm itching to do too.
