wifey kinda having a hard time shooting even with a bench rest + san bag. need it a little higher.

are the handguards easy to remove and replace? maybe i'll get some with rails?

you can actually buy a picatinny rail that screws onto the lower handguard.

kinda like this...


Its just an adapter that goes through the holes in the handgaurd, I put a rail on mine with a FG/monopod thingy.

well, i was kinda avoiding having to put a rail at the bottom as i like to shoot holding it also hence i wanted to keep the handguards it came with it. just looking for an area to put a bipod where i don't have to put a full rail into it.

other ideas?

here you go..the exact thing in the picture...

they make all kinds, even ones that mount to a bayo lug if you got one.

i have to remove the handguards to install, right? easy? tools needed?

or take off the sling mount and put a haris on this...


Better than the above option I think.

Get a rail that fits the bayonet lug: http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=479299

or one that simply clamps on the barrel.

Easy, pull back on the "D ring" "Delta Ring" and pull up on the top piece and down on the bottom piece.

Harris makes a bipod adapter for that purpose.
Picture shows a quick-detachable swing swivel attached. remove that and you have a stud to attach a Harris bipod to.

I have the one piece that Tech Ted just showed you. I will be in the Bay area next weekend.

If you want, I can GEOCACHE it for you. Wanna play that game?

I'll give you the grid coordinates, and you go at your leisure and pick it up.

If you cannot find it, I will email you the photo of the exact location.

LOL, who said we cannot have fun?

PM me is you want to play.
