    Blaser R93 wooden stock - Front bipod stud

    Hi guys,

    I have a harris bipod that i would like to fit to my new (to me) Blaser R93 with wood stock. I know i can drill a small pilot hole in the stock and then screen in the QD stud, but are there any better options available? Maybe something with a metal plate inside the stock for added stability?



    Thanks

    Hello, I have just got a blaser r93 and fitted a javelin bipod mount. With the age old adage of measure twice cut once I drilled a series of holes up to 19mm wide by 11mm deep and bonded the stud into the hole. A very tidy fix. I will try and get some pics together of the job when I get a minute. I used a two pack epoxy. The front of the forend on the blaser is plenty thick enough. Hope this will help. Cheers

    I would only ever fit a "nut backed" QD stud to the front/fore-end

    easily fixed into place
    go slowly, drill a nice neat vertical pilot hole

    test for length and file/grind down to be just shy of the inner level (wind nut on before filing! the unscrewing of the nut cleans the threads up and means you will be able to refit it!)
    give the nut the proper spacing inlet into the inside of the barrel channel
    epoxy into place when tight and sand down when hard
    reapply some stick oil to the channel and you are done

    the top one of these two

    Alan Rhone, who used to be the Blaser agents in the UK, had a very nice modification whereby they set an alloy plate into the stock and then screwed a stud into it. Now I've only ever seen it done on plastic stocked rifles but would imagine it would also work with wooden ones. Here are some photos of it fitted to mine:

    I did exactly the same in the synthetic stock on my .308 - works a charm.

    Really interested to see the inside and outside pics of this. A local dealer showed my the javelin bipod on the R8 and i questioned it's fitment to the R93.

    I will gladly get some pics when I'm home st the end of the week. I placed the mount towards the front of the forend so it is not viewable inside. The bipod is a fantastic piece of kit!
