Here at Phoenix Tactical, the customer is always right. Some of you asked about the possibility of having a tool-free adjustment facility on the cant restriction of our top rail mounted bipods - rather than the hex bolt already used. We listened and have machined up a prototype to test and evaluate.
As always, this new feature will not be marketed until it has been thoroughly tested in the field by ourselves. We will be running this bipod with the prototype cant restriction lock throughout the IMPERIAL CSR meeting - we think 5 days of CSR shooting will be a good test.
The prototype is in the white - the production run will be in matte black oxide finish.
As a matter of interest - the bipod shown in the photo is my own personal bipod - the very first bipod of the very first batch ! Now several hundred sold over the past few years. It has been used and abused in Civilian Service Rifle ( which was shot in the mud and rain of a few UK winters ) and used as a test bed for modifications and improvements.
Despite this rough handling, as you can see - the finish shows little sign of wear.
I run the SharpShootingUK long range ballistics training days in the UK and bog-standard bipods is one of the major limiting factors for most people. I show them the many advantages of the Fortmeier system - how much it improves their recoil control, reduces leg hop and leg torsion, the ability to get easily on target and maintain NPA, how simple it is to adjust up and down from the shooting position, how quick and easy to mount/detach, how tough it is. The Fortmeier is the one that fits best for folks wanting a very much better bipod at very reasonable money, that is simple, fast, super stable and tough. It also looks magnificent!

Your bipod arrived this morning and I am very pleased with the workmanship and the design - much better than an atlas. So, would like to say Thank You for all your help and the speed in getting it to me.

The Pod arrived safely and super fast, thanks for that. It fitted like a glove. It is a wonderful concept and just blows away anything I have used before. It is a really sturdy no nonsense construction, so easy to take on and off.

It looks well made and way way sturdier than either a Harris or Atlas.
A big annoyance of mine was how much flex there was with an Atlas - it seemed very thin and flimsy when extended. The Fortmeier definitely seems a lot more rugged.

Thank you for your assistance with the latest consignment of your great bipods. The fast delivery was very helpful. These really do compliment our Rangemaster .308 and .338 rifles.

The UK home of the FORTMEIER Bipod
As a result of supply delays with my previous supplier ( those of you who sat on a waiting list will know all about this ) and a very productive meeting at SHOT SHOW 2018 in Las Vegas we are pleased to announce we are now the UK exclusive retailer for the Fortmeier Tactical Bipod.
