The folks at Swagger bipods asked me, typically a defensive/tactical shooter, to review their bipod. I soon found out, the Swagger isn’t like other bipods — it’s a breed all its own.
The Swagger has been a hit with hunters as it not only replaces traditional shooting sticks, which have to be carried separately or fashioned from whatever’s around, it takes the concept of shooting sticks to a new level. The field model, which I tested, has legs that extend anywhere between 6.75 to 29 inches. The treestand/blind model’s legs can be set from 9.75 to 41.75 inches.

Out of the box, the Swagger attaches to the sling stud of a traditional forend. Optional Picatinny rail adapters, which I used, make the bipod capable of attachment to a rail. The screw-in studs were, conveniently, sling swivel screws, giving users the option of keeping a front sling attachment at a somewhat customizable distance. Since my own sling is already attached to a side rail, I left it as is.
