    Ive got a fitting for them that fits onto the sling swivel. Not sure where it came from but I can have a hunt around to find out. Maybe Atlas make one. Have you looked at their web site?

    I've got 2, so I could lend you one in the mean time if you want.

    Yea easy as with the kit just looks a bit ugly in the barrel channel you may have to cut the little wing things as they won't dig into your carbon stock like they do into wood.

    You will want to put a plate or similar in the barrel channel to spread the pressure of the second stud.

    The no screw ones that I have got came with these bipods:

    The same as these. They work well.

    @Tahr does yours take an Atlas ie is the picatinny rail long enough and does the knurled tightener clear. It looks long enough in the photo.
    I use one of these (I didn't want to drill hole in stock either) but don't like it. I leaves me with no QD sling stud once fitted.

    As above in the thread. It came with a bipod. But also as per above you can get them from AliExpress.

    I also have an atlas copy and one of these adaptors, but mine doesn't clear the knurled tightener so may be a bit of variation depending on your model

    Hey Duncan I wouldn't drill a hole in your sako carbon stock mate just stick to the Harris seems like a fuck around and you could lose money when you sell it.

    It's a Christensen arms carbon stock mate.
    To late
    Was easy as after a few nervous moments
    The sako will probably get one now.
    Off for a hunt to try it out.
