    DPMS LR-308 bipod mounting adaptor?

    Hey Guys,

    Just got a LR-308 24" Has the standard handgard.
    I'm guessing I want to go with a harris bipod...
    Do I just use my sling swivel or is there a better
    way to attach?

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    Use the swivel if you already have one on your handguard. The only time you need an adaptor on a Harris bipod is if you have a standard A2 handguard on an AR platform.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Reg

    Does the bipod have another hookup for the sling?

    Thats a good question but I dont believe so. I have always used a secondary stock mounted swivel. I will check mine when I get home to be sure. If anything else, it is really easy to install a new swivel for a sling.

    good luck on the project.

    Yep,

    The Harris' have a place for the sling on both the pivot and non-pivot models.

    The one advantage that I've found with having 2 studs is that the sling is less likely to interfere with the bipod legs,
