The best approach would be to get a nice, solid free-float forearm. Barring that type of expense, you can always just add a small rail to your forearm along with a mount. I have these in stock:

Short Rail Forearm Mount (http://riflegear.com/p-363-midwest-industries-short-rail-forearm-mount-mctar-02.aspx)
Bipod Adapter (http://riflegear.com/p-234-yankee-hill-bipod-adapter.aspx)

You may be able to find a single piece swivel stud mount for plastic forearms but I am not sure where to find that. I know the two items above will work.

I assume the attaching 2-hole bar goes inside the hand guard ?

If you want the bi-pod to be stable, then you've got to get some kind of free-floated handguard/rail system.
If you don't mind it wobbling around at least as much as your handguards, then the other options here will work...

Do you have one? How well does it work?

My handguards wobble and rattle, as do just about everybody's. Doesn't whatever you attach to the handguards wobble and rattle around? It seems to me that a light or bi-pod attached to the normal handguards, jiggling around, would be more trouble than it's worth.

No matter what you put on your 2 piece forearm it will wobble.....no if's, ands or buts about it! Check out Riflegear and look at a YHM forearm kit. Can be had for as little as $100.00. Looks awesome and is strong and stable. I went that direction and never looked back. :D
