TipTop Bipod Tips & Tricks –Close it, then Tune it!

Many people love our Picatinny rail bipods, either the Series-9 Telescope legs Pivot & Pan or the Series-9N Notched legs Pivot & Pan Version. If your rifle has a standard 1913 Picatinny rail, this type of TipTop bipods offer an Easy-on and Easy-off deployment. No adapter or tools are needed.  But…What if I have a Picatinny rail that the width has a minor deviation from the standard size?  No problem, here are the steps for performing the proper adjustment:

  1. Close the “Quicklok™ Lever” and turn the “Fine Tuning Screw” to adjust the slot to a proper width until it fits perfectl.
  2. Check your adjustment by opening the “Quicklok™ Lever”, then close it again, it should fit onto your rail now. You only need to do it once. You should be able to close and open it without any force.

What if I forgot to Close the Quicklok™ Lever” when tuning the fine turning screw? Well, you may run into the case that you can’t close the Quicklok™ Lever” easily. If this happens, don’t panic and DO NOT force the Quicklok™ Lever down. All you need to do is to loosen up the fine tuning screw a little bit (the slot will get wider). Now, you can close it.  Then, follow the steps above for fine tuning. To recap, all you need to do is “Close it, then Tune it”.  It’s that simple!

Note:  This bipod will not fit the Weaver rail or if your Picatinny rail deviates from the standard 1913 specification.
