Never had V8 but bought the PSR model about a year ago.

I upgraded from Harris and I do prefer the non rotating legs. I hated the rotating legs, they are ok on the range but at my home range there is an 7 degree angle downwards to the target so the rifle started rolling away from me. I hate Harris tbh.

I have since read that especially some heavy round shooters prefer the V8 because it has a bit of play in it and thus it can be loaded (applied with forward pressure onto it). I have seen a vid where the rifle jumps up slightly by the recoil. I think this occurs with air rifles too in a small scale and will affect accuracy.

Harris bipods do not allow for real loading either and people are able to get “decent” groups with it, just as I am with the PSR. But I thought I’d bring it up here.

@tominco I think *someone* should take some slowmo of the bipod feet when firing (or airing) the gun.

As to the weight, never gave it a thought that the weight would be a problem as they have the QD so they come off easily.

Although I practically never take it off while shooting couple of rounds standing, it gives a good amount of weight :)

But if I’d go walking with it, I think it would be very good idea to take it off. And with the QD it is easy to put on another gun also.

Caution:
The stippling on the bipod is awesome. KEEP THE LEGS AWAY FROM ANYTHING SHINY OR SMOOTH.
