Anyone modify the length of the primos gen 2 bipod sticks?October 8 2017 at 5:44 PM

I have a gen2 primos bipod and when deployed for HFT, they are too wide and slide on the terrain because of the wide stance.
I am wondering if anyone has tried successfully to shorten the length to primos gen 1 short bipod sticks...

Collapsed it measures 40 or 42 inches from floor to bottom of the vee yolk. Fully extended it measures 65 inches from floor to bottom of the vee yolk
To late now but if you buy the short one, it is easy to

add some 3/4" PVC pipe and some rubber chair protectors. I think it was Scott (motorhead) that came up with this. I have one made up for hunter class FT and it works great. Don
Darn Tom, the shorties were expensive. Nt

There is a post (on the GTA I think) where you can clamp a collar on the very top of your legs so they do not splay out when in use. The Gen I had the stop built into them and that is why they are considered the best.
I have a set of Gen 2 (I use my Gen I (I bought the last two sets available anywhere.)) that are just about the right height but the legs splay out.
When I started in FT I made a set of sticks and they work find.
When I bought the Gen II (extra Cabela's points) I adjusted the legs to match the height of the Gen II to the same as the legs I made.
Then I connected the legs with a length of chain (hose clamps) so the legs could not splay outwards.
I have complained to PRIMOS about the Gen II (I do not think the Gen III corrected this problem) and suggested they make a short run of Gen I sticks and advertise them on the airgun forums.
They will sell out immediately, IMHO
+1 on the gen one. great sticks.NT

They still seem too wide and unstable.
