I just tightened the nuts on the top of the legs to reduce the movement.

What about the bogpod?I have two of the Bogpod SB2 bipods, just to have one for backup (as I sometimes travel hundreds of miles for a FT match). I've never had to use the backup. And both combined cost less than any Primos. The SB2 model is the right height for seated shooting. No need to saw off legs, etc...https://www.amazon.com/Bog-Pod-735544-BOG-POD-Sportsmans-Bipod/dp/B003ZVK5RO/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1481393828&sr=8-5&keywords=bog-pod+tripodTo be honest, I don't understand the jingoism about bipods. They are just tools, and there is no advantage in having the best brand name bipod on the course, compared with another that does the same thing.Sometimes spending too much is a disadvantage, as well. Some of the more expensive bipods have straps or links that tie the two legs together. May look steadier, but I found them to be far less useful in practice. I'll explain...When seated in the shooting position and the bipod in front of you, it's necessary to raise or lower the yoke to put the rifle on target. This we all know. Now, with the Bogpod, this is EASILY accomplished by simply spreading the legs apart to lower, or closer together to raise the natural POA. This can be done with the rifle in the yoke, which I purposely set too low -- sighting through the scope to verify it's too low. Then -- in a single motion -- I simply grab the yoke (gun in place) with my off-hand, and lift it up slightly with side pressure on the left leg. Gravity then pulls the right leg closer to the left. Recheck the aim. If now too high, then raise the yoke again, and kick out the right leg slightly with pinky-finger pressure. EASY.I set the legs to a certain length (marked with a silver marker) before starting a match. This length is based on experience, one length for rifle matches, and another for pistol. However, once set, I very seldom have to re-adjust the leg length during an ENTIRE match.In contrast, if the legs are tied together, the height of the yoke can only be adjusted with the legs, each leg made shorter or longer with every target. Others have short center poles that you must unlock, then fiddle with the center pole to raise or lower the yoke, then relock the mechanism. I often watch these users remove the rifle from the yoke to begin this process... sometimes several attempts. Just me, I suppose, but all this fiddling is unnecessary, not to mention putting extra stress on the leg lock mechanism over time.
Mark, I have an extra primos shirt bipod gen 1 for sale if you want it.
