attaching bipod

I would like to use a bipod with my 10/22. Not all the time, but once in a while.
I'd also like to use the same bipod with my Ruger No. 1. The No. 1 has a sling
swivel. The 10/22 does not. If I have one installed on the 10/22, will the same
bipod attach interchangeably to both rifles? And is that the best way to go? And what is involved in attaching a swivel to the stock of a 10/22?

Yes, it will interchange. I switch mine between 3 different guns. Not much to installing a sling swivel stud. There is probably a you tube vid. on it.

If they're still available, ShopRuger had a sale on their bi-pods. They're pretty decent. I grabbed 4 just as extras a while back.


Yup, still avail on sale: Rifle-Bi-Pod-Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.

The shopruger page doesn't give any details on this bipod. Can it be used
comfortably while sitting at a bench? What's its range of adjustment? And can
it be used for both a 10/22 and a No. 1 if both have swivels?

Checked on one that's on my son's 10/22. It adjusts from approx 6" to approx 11" and simply attatches to the standard swivel stud. As for it being comfortable on the bench... Well, unique for everyone but this is the standard design that's been used for years now so gotta think it is. My son certainly thinks so. Of course an alternative is to use filled shot bags. They fit anything.

Thanks guys. I ordered the bipod from the Ruger shop. Meanwhile, I'm going to use the video in G-bear's post to attach the swivel stud.

If you do it like the guy in the video it will turn out great. He mention the special tool but not that he was using a drill press. Installing swivel studs with a hand drill is a good way to drill the hole off center which can make your bipod not be level. And there's not really room for a 2nd chance.

Guess how I learned this!

Check and see if Harris does not make one. I think they do. It clamps on the barrel and not the swivel. I could be wrong in this as I have not purchased a bi-pod in years. SAND BAGS RULE THE WORLD!

Thanks for the tip on the bipods at ShopRuger. I've been looking for one but was not wanting to spend over $50.00, was suprised to get one for about half that. No more sandbags for me!!!

I've been using Harris bi-pods for a long time now. The prices seem to fluctuate a lot, but they can be had on sale for a very reasonable price if you do some searching.

The model that ShopRuger has on sale right now appears to be exactly the design of the Harris unit, and I would not be surprised if it is.

At $25 its a good deal, especially if you have a ShopRuger discount coupon.



Any rifle that used a free floated barrel system should use a stock mounted bi-pod. Attaching to the barrel, or just sandbagging the barrel alone will have an affect on accuracy.

Start real close then, like 10 or 15 feet if you have to. If it shot decent with open sights it should be on the paper starting close.

GPBear, do you think it's worth getting a laser bore sight? I have one but it's chamber specific for .223. I notice they have a model at Cabela's that fits into
a bunch of different barrel sizes --- including .22 --- from the muzzle.
