Solid-mounted my bipod

(in an effort to have something actually about guns on this forum, I'm posting something pretty inane.)
(also, I tried to search people using this product on my rifle, and no one had posted anything)

Just a heads up for you dudes with larger caliber rifles with hollow synthetic stocks.

I've got a Tikka T3 Lite Synthetic in .30-06, and the forearm is pretty hollow. A while ago, I picked up a bipod for it. The first time I shot it (about 5 times) it worked the sling stud loose. I was told this is a thing, and so I looked for a product like this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

In case you don't want to click on a scary Amazon link, it's a 1"x.5" plate with a nut. You drill a hole and place it in the stock for a solid mounting location for bipods. For search-ability: Harris Engineering Number 2R Radiused Flange

There aren't many options, so I bought it. I installed it. Bipod is mounted rock solid. It's not going anywhere without pulling that plate through the stock.


No pics yet, because it's just a black bolt action rifle, scope, sling, butt-pad and bipod, but I can if needed. Either way, it's ready to rock a big buck in a month.
