X22 Backpacker Sling Stud

Log in to see fewer ads
I wanted to have a simple way to attach a bipod to my backpacker. I had read in the thread below John Davies solution and wanted to try it.


I am happy with the end result and wanted to share the steps and some photos.

First, I removed the fore end and separated the two parts. There was a 2nd screw under the barrel pillar. I drilled through the existing screw hole closer to the latch (red arrows).

I used an Uncle Mike’s stud, it was a little long but a few moments with my handy Dremel took care of that.

With the stud mounted I was able to see where I had to remove material on the stock.

Used a small drill bit to see where the holes for the stud would end up. Then the Dremel to make it the right size for the stud

Here is the final fitting. The stud doesn’t interfere with the storage or the lock up of the fore end to the stock.

Initially I was concerned that the hole for the stud would be a problem but after thinking about it I am not concerned. While locked in place for transport and storage the stud is covering the hole. While I am using it, I am at the range with limited exposure to the elements so the chances of getting debris in there is minimal. I also plan to cut a form fitting patch of felt or clear flexible vinyl to line the bottom of the storage cubby with the hole. The stud would push a small bump into it but it should not be too severe.
