stupid question of the day

what would be the easiest way to mount a bipod?

Gorilla tape and zip ties ... Works like a charm and looks very personalized...

Anyhow, is there a swivel stud that will screw into the factory rail .... ?

I know my Harris pi-pod just clamps to a factory swivel stud, but that is wood screwed in (on my Marlin 917)

I bought an extra 513T stud and ground flats on the sides to work with a Harris bipod. It's not pretty but it works fine and it can't be seen when the bipod is mounted.

What I did...

I got a mounting stud long enough to fit through the metal plate. I had to remove wood under the plate. Then put in the stud, put the plate back on and have a bi-pod attachment point.

I haven't tried this myself, but some have replaced the forward wood screw that mounts the swivel plate.

works great + requires no modifications - if you don't want to buy a replacement stud , Fastenal + most Ace hardware have machine screws with shoulders that can be used - it is 2-56 machine thread -

I assume you're talking about the front swivel screw (#113 on this chart):



I wonder about that thread size (2-56). I pulled a screw and measured both the screw diameter (≈0.198") and the as-threaded hole diameter (≈0.180"). This suggests to me that the actual thread size is more like in the 10 - 12 range. I don't have a pitch gauge, but the threads are very fine.

113 dimension taken directly from page 712 of 1956 Remington factory shop repair manual - diameter might be old wire gauge # 2 -

How about drilling out one of the holes and tapping it for a machine screw swivel stud or at least an insert that will accept the machine screw swivel stud.

It probably would take an insert or helicoil of some type.

The Remington threads are about #10 size (might be larger), but very fine. The standard machine screw stud threads are 10-32. I don't think you could successfully retap one of the existing holes. What you could do is drill a clearance hole in, say, the forward hole and use a setup like this:



The nut portion would be installed from the barrel channel side and anchor things there.
