Just a quick one - recently I thought I'd treat the .22lr to a couple of accessories - a nice harris bipod and a rifle sling. I fitted the bipod first and it's great (9-13 inch tilt, swivel, notched leg jobby), then the sling, but after putting it over my back, it doesn't sit right. All of the weight up the front end, I guess from the bipod and sound mod, makes the rifle want to slide back and down (hope your starting to see what I mean, kinda hard to describe!!) so the rifle can end up at a 45 degree angle away from my back, which is clearly not ideal!!
I'm sure others have come across this problem - the rifle is a synthetic stock which probably doesn't help, making that end very light. I know there are other ways to position the rifle (e.g. muzzle down), but I much prefer it just slung over my right shoulder pointing skyward! Any suggestions?!? I'm also thinking ahead to when I purchase my first deer rifle (hopefully soon), as I will probably go synthetic again, and maybe have a bipod on that too! And the Tikka T3 synthetic stainless I handled in the gun shop the other day was VERY front-end heavy with the mod on!!
