The "Javelin Pro-Hunt' design is different to the original 'Javelin' bipod, in that the complete leg units are of a modular design, that can be threaded as a unit into the head of the 'Javelin Pro-Hunt' (The upper legs of the original Javelin bipod design are bonded into the body.)
We currently offer alternative lengths of 'Pro-Leg's' as accessories (30cm, 80cm & 160cm - at full extension) These can be simply threaded into the 'Pro-Hunt' head as a replacement for the existing legs to offer solutions where muzzle clearance is an and issue or where seated, kneeling or standing shots may be required.
What most customers don't realise is that the the 'Pro-Leg' feature the same thread size to fit into our 'Javelin-Lite' bipod & our 'Sentinel' tripod head unit.
We did this deliberately so that customers could mix & match leg heights & fittings without having to purchase additional products of different sizes.
The adjustment of the leg height is achieved by loosening the collar on the upper leg, which enable the lower leg to slide up or down. We specially designed the adjustment this way, so that the part that you need to turn stays further away from the dirt, is easier to locate in long grass, and falls naturally to the hand.
Often people do this with the bipod in there hand whilst looking at its front face, but this doesn't work!
The legs were designed to be adjusted in the field, with the user laying prone behind the rifle! In this orientation, the collar the loosens & tightens the leg adjustment in the same way that any conventional right-hand engineering thread would work. (Right-Tight. - Lefty-Loose.)
- By reaching forward with the weak hand whilst gripping the rifle firmly with the strong hand.
- Wrap the Little finger - Ring finger - Middle finger around the carbon of the lower leg to prevent it rotating.
- Grip the collar with the Index finger & Thumb and loosen the collar of one leg (left = loosen), and at the same time take the pressure off that leg using the strong hand to slowly cant the rifle.
- Drawn down or push up the lower leg until the required height is achieved and retighten.
- Repeat for the second leg.
An advantage of the 'Javelin' cant adjustment mechanism design is that the legs don't need to be millimetre level perfect to be able to level the rifle & scope. Because the ground won't be!
