Bipod?



Log in to see fewer ads
Does anyone know of a bipod that would fit on a Steyr Zephyr II rifle. I bought a Harris but it didn't fit the stud. I don't know what size this stud is it was to small for the harris bipod. Any help would be appreciated.

When faced with a similar problem in the past, I removed the stud and drilled the hole to the correct size for the Harris.
That Zephyr is a tempting rifle.

Yes the hole is too small for the pins of the bipod. It is very accurate and nice looking also.

Why not drill the hole out? A hole is free or really cheap.

I could drill it out but I wanted to know if there was a bipod that fit this without drilling.

I will just figure out what treads I have and order a different one. I was just trying to see if anyone knew already. Thanks for the suggestions.

Unscrew the one in the gun and take it along to match up the threads.

plinker62451,

I just drilled out both studs with a 1/8" drill bit. Then, I finished both off with a 9/64" bit. Worked fine - no problem! (The original holes in the studs were 7/64".)

I did use Tetra Instant gun blue inside the holes and then a drop of oil in them to finish up.

Now, my slings AND my Harris BiPod both fit perfectly. Hope this helps you out? You really don't have to take them off, just put them in a good gun vise and go to it.
