Hi Friends,

My Su-16C bi-pod is a flimsy affair.

Always intended to come up with a solution that stabilized/strengthened it.

SHOULD be rigid and fixed when deployed.

The only success I ever had with it was by holding the left leg while I fired.

Not ideal.

Well, tonight it occurred to me that a simple, cheap fix might be right in my desk drawer.

So cheap it's practically free.

We ALL have them .

WHAT is it ???

A RUBBER BAND !!!

You'll note that I have a flash-suppressor that offers two nice grooves to capture it.

I think it's an A-2.

Any way, the band as shown makes the Bi-Pod completely rigid.

I HAVE NOT fired her with the rubber band in place so I cannot swear that it won't melt but, if it did...

I could imagine a long zip-tie would work as well.

As long as you carried snips or dikes to release it after a shooting session.


*If you would like to support my continuing research you are welcome to send me money...or liquor.

I've fooled with the bipod a few times; I just leave them folded and improvise a rest

Now that's real American ingenuity! The bipod bungee!
