Harris Bipod, Are You Kidding Me??

    I got a BR that said it was a complete kit for Remington 700. I then open it up and it says I need to get an adapter to put it on!! :fire: I don't care how much I like it, this is my last one just based on the chicanery of that.

    Who knows which adapter goes with the Remington 700 Varmint with 2 lugs?

    What kind of adaptor do u need for a Harris bipod to go on a swivel stud? That's what there made to go on

    I don't know. I have two lugs on it. It only has one hole on it. It is a BR-1A2 model. There are no mounting instructions for it. It lists adaptors for Rem 700's. I am a bit confused. This was supposed to fit right onto a 700 lug system.

    by "lugs" do you mean the studs under the stock fore end?

    if so, then there are two of them so you can put a bipod and sling on at the same time. you don't need the bipod adapter to hook to both studs. it just goes on the one closest to the muzzle.

    No instructions, just a page with available adapters and different sizes they offer. Once you said what you said, I firgured out all of the junk hanging out the bottom must go through that hole. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks Taliv, like I said, once Chaser told me they are supposed to go on, I got the thinking cap out and figured out that screw and stuff dangling off the bottom must do something. It would have been much easier with instructions, with me never have actually paying attention to how they mount on others guns ;-)

    heh, no prob. to be honest, it is a very confusing system to use the first few times.

    Now you just need a pod-loc for it with no instructions and you're all set....lol

    About 18 months ago, I bought a Harris bipod for my Savage 7mm WSM...had the same problem figuring out how the darned thing wanted to be mounted! I finally DID figure it out, but it took awhile...Now I don't feel quite so "mechanically challenged" (read, "Stupid"). Some instructions would be really nice.

    But the bipod is a good, solid piece of hardware, and I like it.

    I appreciate the stories. I really do. I understand what you are talking about. A one page copier sheet in B&W would not hurt. Hell, I am a Mechanical Engineer, and I figured since they left out mounting instructions, they must have left out the adapter for the Rem 700 :)

    For a my Harris bipod I don't need the second swivel stud on a rifle. Mine attaches to the one stud and I'm able to attach my sling to the holes in the bipod. There again my bipod is about 30 years old and but still going strong.

    Now that you have it mounted on the rifle don't assume that it will shoot to the same POI that you are accustomed to.

    Based on a picture on Harris's site, I mounted the bipod so that the legs fold towards the butt. While this works in general, and looks neater when folded, one of the more experienced shooters at the range I go to recommended that the legs should fold forward so that you can push forward on the bipod (e.g., against a bank or bench edge) for better stability without risking the legs folding up unexpectedly. Better instructions would helped.

    I always mount mine to the front stud and folded forward to the muzzle. Ive never witnessed anyone have theirs that would fold to the rear.

    All my Harris bi-pods went on with out instructions. Guess I'm lucky. Went to school of hard knocks, no college for this guy to fill his head with the same stuff I can find on Google. Lol.

    Real men don't need instructions. Well at least until there lost :)

    Try searching the internet maybe someone has made a you tube Video.

    That's what I have heard anyway :neener:

    Legs should fold to the front. Harris bipods work well on the ground, but not on a bench or a rock.

    I had to scratch my head for a minute the first time I put one on. I bought it used with no instructions at all.

    I had no trouble with it off a bench.
