    Best place to mount a Bi-Pod on a Romak-3?

    I want to install a bi-pod on my Romak-3. Would a barrel mount be OK or would mounting it on the furniture be better. I was worried about barrel harmonics.

    I got to thinking if I mount it to the furniture I would mount it to the front of the furniture so when the bipod is not in use and retracted i could hold the weapon on the furniture. If it was mounted middle or rear then you could not hold it when the bipod was retracted. thanks

    Not on the barrel (harmonics as you said) or the handguard (they are kinda weak and will crack). I would say the receiver. Only down side to that is you have to drill a hole in the receiver.

    Many in the past have had luck with a cheap barrel mounted bipod mounted behind the gas block. Also success has been found using I believe the AR-15 adapter for the Harris bipod. It is inserted inside the lower handguard with the swivel sticking down through the lower cooling/drainage hole in the handguard and then mated up with a Harris bipod. Then others have drilled a hole int the bottom of their receiver and screwed in a swivel in the hole to mate up with a Harris or Versapod. You can see a photo of this setup on dragunov.net http://www.dragunov.net/owners.html about a third of the way down the page.

    I think this one will work in the bottom vent. Take the lower handgaurd off and make something to fasten this to.

    First you buy one of these:
    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?p ... ber=290259

    and you put it here, you will need to remove the handguard to install it. That only takes a minute or so:


    then you attach the bipod. The harris or fake harris clone (shooters ridge $45 at Walmart) bipods have rubber where they contact the wood so that there will be no damage. As you sinch down the bipod attachment hardware on the bipod it pulls the little inside plate tight against the forearm, but only on the inside of the forearm, where no one will ever see it. I don't beleive this amount of tighening will even mar the inside of it anyways. But the whole idea was to run a bipod without permanently damaging the furniture inside or out.


    the bipod comes off easily if you have the kind with the hand/knurled screw release/attach screw on it like mine does. if you do take it off you have to remember if you didnt tighten that stud that it could vibrate/fallout. it doesn't look too bad at all! I love it!


    threaded only finger just against the wood or a little bit off of it so that the washer cant bite into the wood or damage it.


    The idea is that the bipod and its large rubber inlay contact the stock from the underside of the wood lower, while hanging on by pulling down on the stud with it's own tightening part, and the large metal plate on the inside/upperside of the wood lower are pushing down to create a firm and fairly "non-marring" sandwich on the wood.

    pod down:

    I just finished this bipod modification. I didn't use the washer. I put a dab of blue lock tight on the screw. My barrel held everything tight as can be.

    I installed my bipod adaptor all the way forward as now my big hand doesn't touch the bipod. I installed a Harris 6" to 9" bipod. I think a 9" to 13" would be better but I'll try this out and see.

    Thanks for the info B4Ctom1. This is a very easy modification.

    I've mounted mine on the receiver. Works great and sets so close to center of balance that I have no problem sitting behind it all day.

    Very nice rifle indeed. Does it interfere with a mag change mounted on the reciever?

    I use the 6-9" on everything. I bought a 9-13" once, big mistake.
