I think most of them will, but you have to buy
an adapter if you have the picatinny rail.

Just curious. I don't have any bipods (except for my CAA Pivot Pod) ... Why Harris? I know that the Marine Corps uses Harris bipods, but there are other options out there at competitive prices. What makes folks choose Harris over some of the other brands?

Uh... cause they're good. I have used many others and always end up with Harris anyway, so I stopped experimenting (spending twice). Besides, "USMC use" - would pretty much justify my first choice on stuff that I wanna buy....Course, I'm just a little anal on accessory stuff, if used by USMC...

Harris=good! Well made, user friendly. Just a couple of thoughts though:
1) You will need to buy an adapter to mount to anything other than a sling swivel stud (say that 5 times fast :D ). Beware of sling swivel stud adaptors: many on the market are not quick detach (i.e. A.R.M.S. or thumb screw) IMHO QD mount is essential! Consider A.R.M.S. #32 (replaces the Harris set screw to mount securely) or the similar porduct from Larue

2) Only buy the Harris bipods that allow you to level the rifle on uneven terrain by canting the rifle in the bipods cradle. Not all Harris bipods do this. Having your rifle level is essential for obtaining the most accuracy.

3) Avoid the Harris bipod with the auto-ejecting telescoping leg extensions!!! While seemingly cool, the extensions are not as sturdy as the regular legs (plastic!?!) and the legs click into pre-determined notches whereas the models with thumb tightening set screws can be adjusted to any desired length (like on uneven ground) and then tightened into place. The extensions are sturdier also.

4) Pick the right length for you! The S-type (smallest) are great for benchtop (rooftop) applications, but you often must use the extensions for prone shooting on the ground. The M-type are great for prone shooting, but maybe a little tall for benchrest (IMHO)

Hope this helps, Walt

P.S. Consider models HBBR-S, HBL-S, slightly more $$$, worth every penny=best value (IMHO)

Yeah, like I said consider ARMS #32 http://www.botachtactical.com/ams32thlehab.html or directly from ARMS, (they were on backorder when I checked for you) and Botach was less $$$ but I don't know about availabilty from them!

I like the Barrett carry handle. Never seen one of those on a carbine before.
