New ruger owner 10/22

I purchased a 10/22 Ruger for my wife, I normally take a hand gun to the range and for carry. I have a couple Kimbers and sigs, but my wife wanted to tag along not knowing anything about .22 weapons in a rifle form I did some research and found a great deal on a ruger 10/22 for her. This was about 5 months ago and she has gotten a lot of work out of it, however she has requested a bipod for it ( I say requested like we are 90 years old and she has to request lol ) so I ordered a blackhawk bipod ( I had a company credit with them for a faulty holster ) however I have looked and it appears I need more then the bipod to install ( I have done some research ) and it appears a swivel is needed. Does anyone know if this is true, if so is it an easy instal and are their recommendations?

thank you , I am looking forward to getting my wife on the forum so I don't have to ask the questions for her and maybe she can teach me.

appreciate any feedback or pointing in the right direction

Yup, just a standard swivel would be needed. It's a DIY thing or if you're not feeling confident, any gunsmith should be able to do it fairly quickly and cheaply - it's not rocket science. If it's a standard carbine, I wouldn't worry too much as those stocks are very available in case it were to get marred.

Uncle Mikes is decent enough and inexpensive. Local shop should have them in stock I'd hope.

Just found out this week that when Brownell's purchased Uncle Mike's products, they moved teh production off shore to China. Several hundred people out of work. A new company bought all of the machines and hired most of the workers. The company is GrovTec and the sling swivels are made in the US. I'll not be buying any more Uncle Mike's.

Thanks for the tip. I'll avoid them also.
