ing member 21.

extent to which the former, and consequently the entire bipod, can be transversely pivoted with respect to the firearm. Such construction, however, allows sufficient transverse pivotal movement of the firearm for correcting any cant in the line of sight thereof which may occur when the bipod is standing on uneven terrain. Locking bracket I9 is bifurcated as shown at 22 in Fig. 1. A transverse pin 29 is provided in bracket |9 vertically below shoulder 2| and passing through bifurcation 22 for a purpose to be later described. A forward transverse notch 23 vertically below pin 29 and a transverse notch 24 rearwardly disposed from notch 23 are provided on bracket I9 as well as a sloping cam surface 25 and a rearwardly extending projection 26.

A connecting member 21 is provided with a substantially rectangular stem portion 28, the upper end of which fits into bifurcation 22 and is pivotally joined to locking bracket H] by pin 29 so as-to permit swinging movement of connecting member 21 in a plane parallel to the longitudinal Integral with stem portion 28 there is provided a cylindrical base portion 39, the top of which seats a coil spring 3| mounted to surround the adjacent section of stem portion 28. Base portion 39 is bifurcated as shown at 32 in Fig. and a slot 33 extends through base portion 30so as to intersect bifurcation 32 at right angles.

A sleeve member 34 is slidably mounted over connecting member 21 by means of a pin 35 extending through slot 33. The top edge of sleeve member 34 is bent inwardly at right angles to form a rim 36. When sleeve member 34 is assembled to connecting member 2], spring 3| is compressed between the top of base portion 39 and the underside of rim 3B and thereby normally urges sleeve 34 upwardly with respect to connect- Extending upwardly from rim 39 are a pair of detents 31 arranged to project into notches 23 and 24. The outer surface of sleeve member 34 is grooved as shown at 38 to provide a gripping surface for manual movement of such member.

A pair'of bipod legs 39 are pivotally secured within bifurcated portion 32 of connecting member '21 by a pin 40 fixedly secured as by staking or the like through the lower end of base portion 30. Legs 39 are thereby arranged to pivot toward and away from one another in a plane at right angles to the longitudinal axis of the firearm to which the bipod ismounted. At the top portion of each leg 39 there is provided a V-shaped cam slot 4| having one arm portion 42 relatively longer than the other arm portion 43. When legs 39 are pivotally mounted to base portion 39, cam slots 4| face in opposite directions but nevertheless are aligned sufficiently to provide openings through which pin 35 extends, as shown in Figs. 3 and 6. Theextreme end of each of longer arm portions 42 is slightly enlarged as shown at 44.

Each bipod leg 39 terminates at its lower end in an arcuately-formed spade-like foot 45 having a bent-over portion 46 extending downwardly with respect to the plane surface of foot 45. Legs 39 are preferably stamped or pressed from sheet stock as a single unit. Such method of fabrication not only assures a light weight, sturdy construction but also lends itself to simplicity in manufacture.

When bipod legs 39 are in the spread apart and operative position, the enlarged ends 44 of slot portions 4'2 are aligned as shown in Fig. 8 to form an opening for the seating therein of pin 35.

Spring 3| maintains such arrangement and thereby prevents accidental displacement of legs 39 from such position. At the same time, detents 31! are engaged in either notch 23 or notch 24 to lock the bipod in the operative position. However, when legs 39 are forced together, cam slots 4| pivot to align the shorter slot portions 43 into a unitary track. Pin 35 is therefore cammed downwardly with respect to locking bracket |9 by the diverging movement of longer slot portions 42 so as to ride along shorter slot portions 43. This downward movement of pin 35 causes sleeve 34 to retract detents 31 out of engagement with notch 23 or 24 thereby permitting swinging movement of legs 39 in a plane parallel to the longitudinal axis of the firearm. When legs 39 are released from being grasped, the bias of spring 3| forces sleeve 34 and'thereby pin 35 upwardly and pivots cam slots 4| so that pin 35 seats in the aligned enlarged ends 44 of slot portions 42.

To stow the bipod, legs 39 are folded together as explained above and are swung rearwardly until detents 31 are engaged behind projections 26. During such movement, detents 31 ride along sloping cam surface 25 and, as a result, sleeve member 34 and consequently pin 35 are cammed downwardly to compress spring 3|. Sleeve member 34 is maintained in such position by the abutment of detents 3'l against the rear face of locking bracket I9. It can thus be seen that legs 39 are maintained in a locked and stowed position and can only be released by the manual retraction of sleeve member 34 from behind projections 25. Furthermore, in such stowed position, the stem portion 28 of connecting member 21 is engaged between'the bifurcated portion l8 of lug As a result, mounting bracket I3 is rigidly locked against movement with respect to the rest of the bipod.

When sleeve member 34 is manuall retracted and the bipod legs 39 pushed forwardly, the bias of spring 3| will cause detents 31 to ride along cam surface 25 until aligned with rearward transverse notch 24 whereupon detents 31 automatically engage therein and lock the bipod in this first operating position.

Although legs 39 are cammed apart during such movement, the longitudinal axis thereof is angularly disposed with respect to the longitudinal axis of the firearm. To increase the vertical elevation of thefirearm, sleeve member 34 must again be manually retracted and legs 39 swung forwardly so that detents 31 will engage forward transverse notch 23. In such position, legs 39 willbe disposed substantially at right angles to the longitudinal axis of the firearm and thereby provide the maximum vertical height in which the bipod can support the firearm. The forward swinging of connecting member 2? and thereby sleeve member 34 is limited by the contact of the top of stem portion 28 with the underside of the bifurcated portion 22 of locking bracket l9.

It should be noted that when sleeve member 34 has been pivoted so that detents 3'! engage notch 24, stem portion 28 of connecting member 21 is no longer engaged in the bifurcated portion l8 of mounting bracket lug [1. Accordingly, mounting bracket l3 and thereby the firearm can be transversely pivoted to correct any cant in the line of sight.

The construction of the bipod is also such that sleeve member 34 can be retracted by merely pressing legs 39. together from the spread apart operative position. This movement causes cam slots 4! to cam pin 35 and thereby sleeve member 34 downwardly. Thus, except for the manual retraction of sleeve member 34' required to disengage detents 37 from behind projections 26, the bipod can be locked in either of its two operating positions or the stowed position. It can also be retracted merely by moving legs 39 as explained above.

Thus it can be readily seen that there is here provided a simple, light-weight, sturdy bipod which can be rapidly adjusted between a stowed position and either of two operating positions and be automatically locked in each of such positions.
