If you hunt or target shoot consider adding a Harris Bipod to the rifle stock. Harris Bipods use two telescoping legs to provide a stabilized pivot point for more accurate shots. Harris Bipods are designed to go on fast and easy with no hand tools needed. Most rifles have a screw point for bipods and tripods on the underside of the stock. If yours does not, use one of Harris Bipod's adapters to secure the device to your rifle.
Things You'll Need
- Bipod rifle adapter (optional)
Unscrew the Harris Bipod dial in the center of the unit. Turn it counterclockwise to open the retaining jaws and expose the retention screw.
Align the Harris Bipod retaining screw with the screw fixture under the rifle stock. Turn the screw dial to secure it into the rifle stock. Once tight, turn the jaw dial clockwise to tighten the Harris Bipod retaining jaws around the rifle stock as a secondary retaining point.
Slide a Harris Adapter for your rifle (available through Harris Bipods by providing your rifle size and stock size) two-thirds the way up the stock toward the barrel. Tighten the adapter jaws onto the stock via the tightening dial.
Screw the Harris Bipod retaining screw to the adapter screw receiver and tighten the bipod jaws to the rifle stock.
