    I was looking for a bipod for my savage mark ii. I have been looking at the Harris bipods, and the website says the S series
    I'm having a little trouble wrapping my head around what this does, it seems to me that this would make the rifle a lot less stable then a traditional bipod style. I think it would be a lot harder to put accurate shots down range with the rifle wobbling from side to side.

    I use the rifle frequently to hunt rabbits and at the range. and was wondering, in your guys opinion, would this "S series" or a more traditional bipod be better for me?

    I think yer reading too much into the word.

    It doesn't mean you can point left to right. What it does is allow you to cant the rifle a bit to keep the sights parallel to the horizon. You still have to do your part.

    For bench shooting, I wouldn't recommend it. Prone on the ground, it's a nice feature.

    I agree with Bob. I didn't go with the swivel model as I shoot the rifle from the bench. Get you a sand bag that you can put under the heal of the butt and by squeezing that sand bag a bit or relaxing it a bit you can adjust your elevation and still stay stable.
