Hey guys,

I have a Fx cutlas in walnut stock and i want to install a harris bipod on it. My problem is that there isnt a whole lot of wood on the forend under the tube, so im wondering what the most secure way to do this would be.

Should i just use a sling stud and maybe have to grind the stud screw down to fit (since its longer than the thickness of the stock's fore end) and then epoxy the screw?

Or buy a rail with shorter machine screws and just epoxy all of it together and buy an adapter to get my stud for the bipod to attach to? Or should i get a rail and just switch out the tiny machine screws for wood screws and then epoxy it all together and then get a stud adapter?

Any advice on what hardware to get to do this? Any better ideas?

Whats your guys advice?? what would be the most secure system? im hoping there's people with a cyclone or superswift that have experience doing this or guys with any experience with troublesome stocks.

thanks guys

Would suggest you take it with you to the next AIRFT shoot and talk to Kim, Walter or Dave...any one of which will give you good advice. Not immediate gratification, but hey...you get good advice, meet some great folks.... and you get to shoot too! :)

Contact Rocker45 or Castle02 for details on the shoot if you're not already on the list.

Might need a big fender washer and inlet it into the wood to clear the tank.

Ill get the pics soon as I can. Its a walnut thumb hole stock. The cutlas seems to have the same stock as the cyclone if that helps at all.

Thanks

If the stock forearm is the same thickness. I would suggest a rectangular block threaded for your mounting post. Inset and aqua glassed into position. But then that depends upon cylinder clearance and thickness of forearm wood....JMHO
