    AES 10B correct Bi pod

    I picked one up sad face missing the bi pod. needless to say picked up a couple from APEX. Both have adjustable feet. One is removable from the mounting section. The other isn't all one piece. I've seen some pictures of them with the removable leg mounting version. I hope that one would be correct. Sorry for no pictures, but I think some members. Will know what I'm talking about. any help would be great thanks in advance.

    Adjustable romanian bipods are correct for romy rpks after ~1977, so they're gtg for the aes10b. They aren't removable per-se (not in the same way the m72ab1 bipods are, but if you remove the crossbolt that holds the bipod to the collar the legs can be pulled off. There are also a few oddball variations to the bipods aside from the common soviet pattern and romy adjustable bipods; a member on this site and/or the other sent me pictures of a couple he got a while back. I really like the adjustable bipods because the ball-ish joint between the bipod leg assembly and collar allows for some up-down/side-to-side movement in addition to the rotation you get with the standard bipods

    Nice. That would be the latest version bipod.

    I'm not going to tell you they are easy always to find or install.

    The collar that gets installed permanently behind the FSB is the hardest part to find.

    This one:

    Looks very nice, I always prefer the laminated furniture, do you know if the wood pistol grip is correct ?
    I think a bake grip look great too. She's a keeper!
