INSTRUCTIONS
Congratulations, you have purchased the
most advanced and dynamically adaptable
bipod available. The patented "OMNIAXIS"
motion capabilities will allow your firearm to
concurrently pivot horizontally, vertically and
However unlike traditional ridged
cant.
crotch bipod designs, there are several
common sense rules that you must apply.
Rule -----------------------------------------------------
Your Snipe Pod is not intended to function as
an unattended firearm rest. Always maintain
direct hand control of your firearm while using
the bipod. Failure to follow this rule may cause
the firearm to tip suddenly, causing the feet to
loose surface adhesion and perform the
splits. Damage to the bipod, firearm or
possible injury may result.
Rule ‚-----------------------------------------------------
The ball sockets are designed so that each
leg is afforded over 60° of movement. This
considerable movement is what allows the
bipod to adapt to so many terrain variations.
However, common sense must be exercised
so that the angle of the legs to the supporting
surface is not so extreme that the feet of the
bipod lose adhesion and the bipod performs
the splits.
Rule ƒ-----------------------------------------------------
Do not attempt to use the bipod on slippery
surfaces. The design is dependent on good
adhesion with the supporting surface.
Surfaces such as automobile hoods, tile floors
or ice are suspect and should be avoided.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN.
Be sure the firearm is unloaded.
INTRODUCTION.
SNIPE PODs are designed to attach to firearms via industry standard
Q.D. (quick detach) sling studs. There are two major components, the
leg unit which is designed to be folded and stored separately (inside the
provided holster), and the sling unit which remains attached to the rifle.

FIG 1
DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MOUNT THE SLING UNIT.
1. If applicable, remove your sling from the front Q.D. sling stud on your
firearm.
2. Check to make sure that the hex head set screw in the sling unit is
backed out so that it does not protrude into the interior "pocket"
hole that the Q.D. sling stud will be inserted into.
3. Slip the sling unit over the Q.D. sling stud with the hex set screw
towards the muzzle of the firearm and hold it in place (FIG1).
4. Insert the provided 5/8" X 1/8" diameter dowel pin into one of the
side holes in the sling unit (FIG 2) and push it through until it is flush
with both sides of the sling unit, while making sure that the dowel pin
is also inserted through the hole in the Q.D. sling stud.
5. Using the provided hex wrench, tighten the hex set screw (FIG 3). Be
sure to gently rock the sling unit while tightening. This will assure that
the set screw is aligned perpendicular to the Q.D. sling stud. The hex
set screw has a small nylon patch applied to it, to prevent it from
coming loose unexpectantly. This step places the sling unit under
tension on the Q.D. sling stud.

At this point it is necessary to perform the following safety check
Using the provided hex wrench, apply pressure to one of the
exposed ends of the dowel pin, attempting to push it out. If the
dowel pin can be moved, either the hex set screw is not properly
tightened, or the sling stud is not an industry standard Q.D. sling
stud.
If the hex set screw is fully tightened and the sling unit appears to
be firmly attached to the sling stud, yet the dowel pin can be
pushed out, then the hole in the sling stud is to large. Any further
attempt to use the Snipe Pod on this firearm must be abandoned.
Replacement of the sling stud with an industry standard Q.D. sling
stud may be an option.

6. If applicable, reattach your sling to the provided hole in the sling
unit (FIG 4.)
USING A SITTING SNIPEPOD IN THE PRONE POSITION.
FIG 5
FIG 5 shows the deployment of a sitting SnipePod for the prone position. In
this example an STX-27 is folded so that the top 2 segment (5 segments in
each leg) form an approximate 11 inch long leg. The other three segments are folded and wrapped with the
velcro strap to prevent automatic deployment to the full length (27”). This is one technique that allows a
sitting SnipePod to be effectivly used for prone applications!
DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO ATTACH AND USE THE LEG UNIT.
le
Muzz
1. Remove the leg unit from the provided holster. Undo the VELCO® leg
gatherers and while lightly holding the black LEXAN® ball socket
assembly, allow the legs to dangle freely downward. The shock cord will
snap the segments together as they become coaxial (gently shaking the
black LEXAN® ball socket assembly will aid in the segment alignment).

2. Check to be sure that the slot in the ball socket assembly is clear for mating
with the sling unit, and if necessary, pull the main retaining pin back to
clear the slot.
FIG 6
3. Attach the leg unit to the sling unit by slipping the slot of the ball socket
assembly over the male protrusion of the sling unit. Push the knob of the
main pin in to complete the attachment. When properly attached, the
rotation release lever will be towards the muzzle (FIG 6). If the leg unit is
reversed it will be offset from the center line of the firearm, and won't work
properly.

4. Height adjustment is accomplished by simply varying the spread of the
feet.
FIG 7
5. Snipe Pod's have a rotation release lever that when pressed allows the
legs to be rotated back alongside of the firearm. This allows easier
transporting of the firearm while the Snipe Pod is attached.
Spanner
wrench
6. The ball socket tension is set at the factory so that the legs will maintain
their last position when the gun is raised off the ground. However it can be
adjusted to user preference. By releasing the locking set screws on each
leg (FIG 7), the ball socket keepers can be adjusted with the provided
spanner wrench (FIG 8). After achieving desired tension, re-tighten the
locking set screws (FIG 7).
FIG 8
SHOCK CORD ADJUSTMENT/REPLACEMENT.
The shock cord inside the legs of your Snipe Pod is held in place at the foot
end with a knot, and at the ball socket end by a loop attached to the ball.
Tension can be adjusted or the shock cord replaced.
FIG 9
1. To gain access to the loop, insert the provided hex wrench into the hole
located in the side of the top segment (FIG 9). Do not attempt to
completely unscrew the set screw, because it will not fit through the hole.
A 1/2 turn of the set screw should be adequate to allow the leg to be
pulled off,
2. Adjust the knot on the loop to achieve the desire shock cord tension.
3. To reinsert the ball, pull the shock cord by grabbing it on the other end of
the top segment (FIG 10). Do not worry about aligning the base of the ball
with the tube at this point. The ball will be perpendicular to the tube (FIG
10& FIG 11). This process will draw the loop into the tube and help flatten
the shock cord in the groove in the ball.

4. Now pinch the loop and the ball between your index finger and thumb.
While still pulling on the shock cord from the other end of the segment, turn
the ball 90degrees, aligning the base with the tube and gently pull the ball
in with the shock cord.
5. Turn the ball so that the set screw is aligned with the hole in the segment,
reinsert the hex wrench and tighten.

FIG 11
If you need to replace the 1/8" shock cord, be aware that quality varies considerably.
Good shock cord should be able to almost double its length. A 12" length should be able to stretch to
20"-24".
The best places to shop for high quality shock cord are stores that specialize in camping,
backbacking and rock climbing equipment.
When folding the legs on your Snipe Pod, start in the middle and work towards the ends.
This will apply uniform tension to the shock cord and will make it easier to fold.
Don’t loose those tools, store them in
the secret pocket inside the belt loop!
