We install the bipod stud by drilling and tapping the aluminum handguard for it.
- Locate the position you want the stud, usually half way between the end and the knurling, then use a prick punch to mark it so the drill will not walk.
- A top dead center punch works best with the receiver upside-down and receiver leveled.
- Use a # 21 drill bit for the hole.
- Then tap the hole with a 10-32 tap.
- Install the stud with a drop of # 271 Loctite on the threads.
