Keep the Grip Pod GPS02, or go with a GG&G XDS Bipod?

    Here is my current setup as it is now-

    Not quite done yet- waiting on the BCM Gunfighter MOD 4 Charging Handle, and the Viking Tactics MK1 sling.

    This rifle is intended to be a compact, medium range to semi-long range rifle. Not intended for close-up stuff; alas, it can be used in that fashion out to 50m, as that is what the Iron Sights on the ACOG are zeroed for from the factory.

    I love the Grip Pod GPS02 I have on it now; its plenty stable for me, but I feel I might be able to get even more stability from a GG&G XDS Bipod.

    This is the one I'm interested in-

    Has anyone used one of the GG&G Bipods before?

    I can't stand those grip pods' I'd choose anything over that.


    That said, I run a harris on my MK12's and a tango down on my recce.

    Why not get the bipod and then a folding VFG?

    It's your gun, change it as much as you want. If it doesn't take much to switch them out do both. Have you tried Magpul's AFG?

    You said you like the Grip Pod and have no problem with it, so why change? Of course, sometimes ya just gotta try other stuff to know what you may or may not be missing.

    The Grip Pod seems intersting to me because it's two accessories in one.

    I decided to stay Grip Pod, as the money I spend on a bipod could go towards ammo......and the Grip Pod already works very well.

    As for the Grip Pod, people say they hate them, but I have the steel-reinforced leg version, courtesy of my company armorer, and they have been great.

    I highly recommend them. I look at it as more of a "weapon stabilization device", than a true bipod. It works magnificently though. I never had an issue with mine in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    I'm thinking of getting one for my AR. It's a neat concept. How much was yours, or do I not want to know?:rofl:

    I've used/have both. With your application I would suggest the GG&G bipod. It's a little pricey, but definetly more stable than the grippod for medium/long range shooting.

    Our unit armorer provided me two of them, brand new in the bag for the hefty price of a pack of smokes.....not a bad deal. :supergrin:

    I like the GG&G Bipod, but I like the modularity of the Grip Pod. Not only that, but my M6A2 DEA is already heavy enough with just an ACOG, Grip Pod, and SureFire M600A Scout Light on it......glad I took the VLTOR EMod stock off and replaced it with the IMod Standard. That EMod has a little bit of heft to it....
