Could you just replace the piece of rail on the airgun, by a piece of picatinny?

Then it should work... but personally, I'd rather replace the 11mm piece of rail by a picatinny piece of rail
- The OCD in my doesn't like adapter :rolleyes:

Not quite sure what you mean by replacing the 11mm rail.This is not removable.

Slap one into the bipod and clamp it to the rail.

Looking at the picture with the rail. Is it not held in place by two hex screws?
