Do the bipod legs look to be mounted incorrectly to anyone else? They don't look right to me.

Seems right to me. Bi-pod should fold forwards on the Stgw57.The Stgw550 folds towards the action.

Look 1:09 into the first video. You can clearly see the bipod legs folded to the rear, towards the receiver. The bipod feet do not mate correctly with the foregrip.

The bipod can be situated anywhere along the barrel jacket--- at the rear is where it should be located--- folded toward the end of the barrel--- though I would use the bipod in the forward position!!! Image

You are right. Can't remember if legs can be folded in both directions. Can they?

The legs on my PE only fold in one direction, forward.

You can put the bipod at the front and fold the legs rearward, or at the rear and fold them forwards...
