Ian,

Here's a link to the VRA Shop page where these bipods are listed (see under Miscellaneous at the bottom of the page). Other State Association shops will have them too.

I believe these slide into an Anschutz type rail.

Good luck.

Alan

Pretty sure its just a rail required - the bipods will slide into them. Can a TR shooter confirm please?

The typical F Class bipod is made to fit onto a standard accessory rail as per TR.

Rod,

We're talking about the short legged bipods allowed under SSR 3.1.9. Do you know how these attach?

Alan they generally go into the standard type accessory rail. Some people have devised their method of attaching, but most have the rail.

Ok, to generalise, anything that is fitted to a TR almost always fits onto the accessory rail.

They also can mount to a sling swivel stud! Sinclair Int do a stud and rail mount accessory for whatever turns your crank!

Heres an opportunity for a Woody or Davies to get into the international bipod market. F/TR is just around the corner and we are all going to need a nice light stable bipod to maximise our current FS rifles
:wink:

Yeah right....I did think about the idea though. The emphasis being on the "light" for F/TR with the 8.25 kilo limit. There are plenty being made, so no need for us to be making them.
