I was able to get a well used one for not many bucks and then had the fun of getting the dirt out of many crevices and crannies. But it works fine. Sorta.
The weird thing is while it pops open quite smartly when it is detached and just held in my hand, that not what happens when it mounted on my AR.
When mounted, this GripPod doesn't pop the bipod quite all the way out. I have to give the gun a shake to make the bipod snap into open position.
