First Look: Swagger Stalker QD42 Bipod

posted on October 22, 2019
Designed with the varied needs of hunters in mind, the Stalker QD42 bipod, from Swagger, provides enough versatility to shoot supported over the soft walls of a ground blind, while still retaining the ability to collapse short enough for use in the prone position. With a maximum height of 41.5", the Stalker QD42 is raised and lowered via turn-dial legs. Topside, its namesake "Quick Detach" technology makes for easy mounting to everything, from bolt-guns to crossbows. A unique facet of its design, the Stalker QD42's legs do not have a solid connection to the mount, but rather hinge to it on springs, making pivoting easy and quiet when tracking game. 

Easily attachable, the Stalker QD42 can be paired to a wide variety of shooting platforms via an adapter, or directly via a sling-swivel stud mount. For transportation or storage, the Stalker QD42 can be detached with just the press of a button, and reattached just as seamlessly.
