Default Ruger 10 22 carbine (wood stock) bipod install

Just put my 10/22 in jail, shopping around for a bipod. Question I have is can I use the existing sling mount on my #1103 wooden stock to install a bipod? Or, do I have to swap out the exiting sling mount for a swivel stud, etc?

Please help. can't find any direct answers.

thank you,
ns

I have not been able to find a bipod that will fit the factory barrel band. You can buy an aftermarket barrel band that has a picatinny rail under it, then get a bipod that fits the rail or cheaper would be to get some screw in swivel studs and mount the bipod behind the factory barrel band.

Boyds* would work, or you could buy swivel studs for $5 and put one up front

Yes, must drill into the stock.
There is a adapter that has a sling swivel stud that goes onto the barrel band, but this is mostly for sling use as it is not stable enough for bipod use.

Uncle Mike's 10/22 sling swivel kit, barrel band adapter at top right:

keeping a 10-22 stock is a pipe dream

I know for a fact you will shoot WAY more rounds through your 10-22

The 10/22 is a tool to make your larger caliber rifles more useful and accurate. Plus its so much fun to shoot it's worth every penny.

I agree, the 10/22 is a great rifle to just shoot and have fun. I just drilled my OEM stock and installed a $5.00 stud it works great.
