A good bipod needs to be capable of supporting the weapon and providing a stable platform for the shooter to accurately place shots. The Remington 597, when supported, is capable of amazing accuracy. Due to the modularity of the platform and the long magazines it can accept, the bipod may need to provide a greater level of clearance. (A reminder, though: you might have to first install a bolt stud [see some here] to install a bipod to the 597.)
Here are our finds for the 4 best Remington 597 bipods on the market:
