I got a Outers Bi-pod for X-mas and I see I will have to add a swivel stud or something to my USGI stock to mount it. It looks like a good Bi-pod, much the same as a Harris. Anyway-How do I handle this stud deal. Ideas anyone?
I bought the same bipod as well. I'm trying to figure out which stud to use as well. It looks to be an excellent bipod and half the price. I'm guessing you could use a Harris stud to mount it with. I'm going to try and locate a #5 on the web to use per Tom's installation tips. I'm going to use the weep hole so that it will be in front of the sling. I'll let you know how it turns out.
I did a little more research and it looks like outers is almost exactly like Harris and can use the same mounting stud as a Harris. I found a #5 stud mount kit on eBay for $10 but with shipping it will probubly be higher than if I just bought it locally. Toward the back pages of my search on eBay (Search words Bipod) I saw a few Outers for sale and they were not bided up too high yet. I am going to keep my eye on a short one being Mine is long. The idea of using the weep hole is the most pratical idea I have heard. I think thats the way I'll try it
I went to the gunstore today and bought a #5 adapter. I cut it to fit and mounted the bipod up for a check. Works like a champ. So I'm going to say that the #5 works fine with the Outers bipod. I've not epoxied the piece in yet, but I'm considering it.
I used the forward weep hole like you're talking about. The adapter is a perfect fit in the hole. Didn't need to enlarge it at all. Still have to do some small Drimel work to make it fit right. Hope this helps you out.
