    those harris knock-off bipods will work okay, however I personally don't like putting cheap parts on firearm.

    go right first time and buy harris. if money isn't a issue, atlas v8 bipod.

    I prefer the parker hale bipod on my Accuracy int AWP as my fav bipod

    But for a 22 rifle a harris which you can get used for about the same price as the UTG or get a UTG.

    It's a 22 LR, no need to get the best tacticool accessories. Likely you will change the setup before the bipod fails you.

    I have that UTG one you linked. I also got this one previously
    Amazon.com: UTG Bipod, SWAT/Combat Profile, Adjustable Height: Sports & Outdoors

    Both are ok for knockoffs. Nothing really special. I would go with the one you linked for sure. Its nice being able ot adjust the height and overall it feels a bit studier than the other. Snaps forward and up nicely and it did feel pretty solid. I dont use either all that often but they have worked just fine so far

    First thanks for the replies...

    Second I want to get a bipod that I could use on other firearms...like my ar15. So getting a nice one, but not stupidly priced, is my goal. TBH it would be used mostly on the 22 at first cause...well ammo cheaper. :)

    this is like buying costless car parts, it will work. but rest is questionable.

    there is also grippod, if you like those style. but beware of fake/replica. (good search for how to identify)

    if i were you, I'd buy harris and be done with it. if you are serious firearm user, you can't go wrong with harris bipods.

    Why do you need a bipod? To make more accurate shots?

    Why would you go cheap? To not make more accurate shots?

    Cost and accuracy do not necessarily go together. I have shot sub MOA on my match ar with a cheapo chinese bipod.

    So far it works as well as my harris and has lasted 10+ years but it looks really cheap is all.
