    Cadex Falcon Light Explored

    .

    I got my Falcon Light bipod last week and decided to show what you get for a MSRP of 549.95 $

    Since I am not an expert, I decided to show you what the Falcon Lite was, rather than posting an online review filled with a bunch of unreliable opinions.

    1 - Here goes, the top of the package with the part number label




    2 – The bottom of the package also showing portion of the instructions sheet.




    3 – Top view of the bipod




    4 – Bottom view of the bipod – Note that it will only attach to a Picatinny rail.




    5 – Front view close-up of the built in Picatinny rail adapter and the Quick Release Latch




    6 – Rear view showing the “bipod movement” locking leaver




    7 – View of the Leg “release” buttons, one for leg retraction (no need to use any button to extend the leg) and the other for angle




    8 – Showing the rifle’s “Cant” adjustment




    9 – Showing “Pan” adjustment




    10 – One leg at maximum extension (compared to closed)




    11 – Close-up of the unscrewed leg tip and locking mechanism




    12 – Leg angled at 0 from the back




    13 – Leg angled at 45 from the back




    14 - Leg angled at 90 from the back




    15 - Leg angled at 135 from the back




    16 - Leg angled at 180 from the back




    17 – Close-up of the built in sling stud




    18 – Disassembled “swivel” assembly




    19 – The complete bipod weighs in at 389 grams




    20 – The retracted length




    21 – The extended length




    22 – The retracted width




    23 – The extended width





    Note that it appears that every part of this bipod is made of metal except the two plastic pieces used on the swivel assembly and the very tip of the bipod legs.





    I should add a few comments about what I observed.
    - When this bipod is installed on my Cadex Chassis, the bipod feels very solid, there is no play like what I experience on all my Harris bipods when I load them.
    - The legs stay put when you load the gun or push the gun forward, they do not freely “turn” like the Atlas bipod does.
    - The legs will only lock in the 0, 45, 90, 135 and 180 as pictured above. No "in-between"
    - The Leg tips appears to be made out of a somewhat hard plastic, not a pliable rubber.

    Well done.
    Run your bolt. Not your mouth! Only accurate guns are interesting!

    Nice try... but let's say, if you where to show up at a certain range east of what you list as your location, you might get lucky and get to try it on your gun.
