Heathen Assaulter Bipod

I first encountered the Heathen Assaulter Bipod at last year’s Warrior West. The first thing that struck was how simple and lightweight it is. It’s just under 3 ounces!

Although the legs are fixed height, it’s a multifunction device. In addition to use as a Bipod, it serves as a hand stop and barricade stop.

Finally, it can be mounted to Pic rail, KeyMod, M-Lok and Knight’s Delta Ring Quad Rail.

    Hey folks, these things are pretty sweet little devices. I’ve had the chance to run one for about 6 months now. The barricade stop was what originally caught my interest. We were running Vtac walls playing 9 hole (one handed) and the guy with the barricade stop had a significant advantage.

    Since then the bipod has come in handy — be it in zeroing, or when hunting yotes. When not in use, the bipod legs sit inline with my rail and they are ultralight. I’m not normally an advocate for bipods on a carbine, but since my initial install I’ve become a believer, and have since added one to my 11.5.

    My only ask is that they make leg options in various lengths as I want to put one on my hunting rifle now.

    big thumbs up.

    I’ve always run a Harris bipod on my AR. NO MORE! I recently mounted one of these Heathen Assaulter bipods on my rifle and what a difference. Super light, super durable, super easy/quick to deploy under stress. One of the best features is that it stores out of the way completely when not in use. The barricade stop feature works great and will now save my light from having to act as my barricade stop. The whole operation is slick and durable. My drill times and accuracy have dropped dramatically. Also like the tagline “get some”.

    I’ve been using the assaulter bipod since August and I’m a big fan. In the interest of full disclosure, I know one of the guys at Heathen Systems. That doesn’t influence my opinion of the product, but it does make me more inclined to take the time to share my experience with others so here we go.

    I’ve got it on a 16″ BCM with a Vortex Razor, which isn’t the type of gun I want a dedicated bipod on. The range I shoot at has steel out past 1,000 yds, and the assaulter bipod has really improved my ability to quickly and consistently engage targets out to 600yds with 55gr. I keep the bipod legs permanently stowed on my keymod rail when not in use and it hasn’t interfered with running the gun or accessing my tape switch at 12 o’clock. The ability to have a bipod on hand that doesn’t get in the way or interfere with my shooting when not in use is a capability I value and haven’t had until now.

    The barricade stop is a nice addition, and one that I’m learning to take more advantage of. I utilize a BCM short vertical grip as a hand stop so I don’t have any comments about that aspect of the assaulter bipod.

    One of the prime vendors had this on display at the recent SWTG 3 Gun match at Range 37 and a number of the instructors were running it during the competition. Nothing but the same responses as above!

    This is really cool, and at at excellent price point to boot.

    I’m going to snag one.

  6. Friend says:

    What do they mean by “[mounts to] Knight’s Delta Ring Quad Rail” ? Are they just redundantly stating it clamps to a pic rail or is there something I’m missing here?

    Could be just the thing for a Scout Rifle. Jeff Cooper always wanted a very light folding bipod. At least one experimenter used carbon fiber fishing pole material.

    Replies to this seem awfully shilly for something you have to rubber band to your rail to deploy.

    • Kris says:

      I was just thinking that I have never seen that many “review” comments on a SSD article.

    • tcba_joe says:

      Yeah… these are really odd comments, especially for this site.

    • SamHill says:

      I thought the same thing about the reviews. They seemed pre-written and unusually structured for SSD.

      • Stu says:

        ‘Thanks to the Heathen Bipod I can please my wife for hours on end, plus I got a free kitchen knife set as well with it, and Billy Mays came back from the dead just to give ot two thumbs up!’

        In case you’re wondering, that’s what the above ‘review’ comments sound like to me.

    • Adun says:

      Wait, so the rubber bands are to keep it secured? It can’t do that by itself?

      • Nick says:

        Looks like this bipod is carried by bands attached around the handguard and then attached by jamming the legs into the holes on the bipod base/barricade stop.

        Looks like they’re also selling extra sets of bipod legs on their website too.

        Interesting idea, a lightweight profile folding version would be pretty nifty…

      • Tim says:

        so apparently they aren’t strictly necessary, the bipod legs don’t fold, they just pop into some sockets where they’re held by detents. So when not in use you literally pop the legs off and pop them into other sockets that hold them along the rail

    How about a folding version?

    • Adamn says:

      I would be sold for a folding one. Guess they’ll come up with it at some point. Right Heathen guys?

      Otherwise a great product.
