Bipod adapter for wood stock

Hi,

I'm looking for hardware that I can put in the forend of my boyds oversized walnut stock so I can attach a bipod. Is there such a thing out there? And will it split the wood stock?

Both Vesa-Pod and Sadlak make such a product.

I installed the Sadlak picatinny rail and mounted my bipod on that. No matter which bipod rail you purchase be sure to follow its installation instructions and be patient/precise with each step.

If you purchase a Sadlak, I recommend using a Dremel tool (with a round wood carving bit) to carve out the woodstock's interior (in order to fit the mount's attachment plate). If done correctly, the interior well will be a perfect fit and will have clean lines.

Good luck.

In an effort to make the installation of the internal nut plate easier, we now have 3 distinct internal nut plates designed for the different types of stocks. The correct nut plate will make this more of a drop in part with a minimum of fitting required.

Figerglass stock uses the #1 nut plate
USGI wood stock uses the #2 nutplate
Synthethic Springfield Armory stock uses the #3 nutplate
Supermatch and McMillan stocks use the #1 nut plate but come with longer screws and studs

This is why we ask what type of stock you have when you are ordering. We have had #1 and #3 nutplates in stock for quite some time but the first lot of #2 just come out of production yesterday I'm working one the new part numbers now and should be able to get them onto our website within the next day or two

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions

It's easy to install, I got the drill bit and steel bedding from them also. Drilled out the rivots for the sling loop, used their bit to get the proper hole size, used a dremel with a sanding wheel and a very sharp 1/4" chisel to install the plate. Covered it with the bedding. Rock solid plus I could use the original sling loop. I'm getting ready to order my third one for a Law 484 walnut stock that will be built in the near future.

This is a picture before I started the install. I just used the dremel to deepen the 2 holes ever so slightly then used the chisel to remove the wood in between the holes. The internal plate, and bedding, are below the surface of the wood. This is how I did it, you should follow their instructions.

I just used the Harris adaptor, "2R." It costs about $10.

Correct. I did this with my walnut stock, and then "bedded" the attachment plate in the inside of the stock with JB Weld.

I've only fired about 150 rounds with the bipod mounted, but it worked well (accuracy was good), and the stock didn't show any signs of stress if anything, I think bedding in a steel plate must reinforce the stock.
