CVlife offered me this bipod to review. An Amazon.com package came but inexplicably the plain brown box inside wasn’t labeled CVlife. A small product ID label said: MidTen Tactical? Turns out that CVlife isn’t affiliated with MidTen. I wonder if CVlife resells MidTen’s products under the CVlife name? The CVlife Rep I communicated with didn’t have any information on that but apologized for the mixup.

I reviewed the bipod. The fit-and-finish is lacking. Rough milling marks and blemishes on the surfaces. But it felt solidly built. It was easier to deploy and stow than my similar UTG Recon Flex. There was a bit of play on the forward/rearward axis due to the teeth and pin locking system of the legs. This “wobbliness” may not be poor workmanship but a feature allowing for less stress from recoil like MagPull’s Bipod? Only time will tell.
I leaned on it with my full weight and it took it without give or creak. It should provide a stable enough platform for my 10/22 or my AR. I look forward to putting it through some use and abuse as soon as the rifle gun ranges reopen, after COVID and wildfire closures. I will update in the future with durability information.
