    mISSING pART

    This will hopefully get more cover in this section, ending in a result!

    I have lost the screw in part of the Harris Bipod, that tightens it to the rifle once it's been clipped in. Does anyone have a spare or know where I would be likely to get a spare?

    A bolt does work, but you cant tighten it by hand as effectively as the knurled head on the original part.

    Cheers

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Cut the head of the bolt and braze on something that will be easy to tighten by hand assuming you have axcess to some brazing/welding equipment well thats what I would try anyways

    Mine has a bolt fitted with a cross slot cut in the head. I normally use the back of a knife blade or a key to tighten/loosen it.

    Hi TJ

    Not sure which part you're missing, but if it's just the knurled "nut" part, I've got a couple of these which I got in surplus to requirements - you can have one for what I paid if it'll help (actually, I think they're better than the knurled nut anyway!).

    It's 3/16 Whitworth.

    I have some with a normal slotted screw head. This isn't as handy as the Harris thumb screw type head but then it doesn't work lose as easily either.

    If you want me to pop some in the post drop me a PM with your address as I have a few spare.

    There's a place in the Longman along from HIS - forgotten the name.

    You will get one there - stainless, plated, blacked, or WHY.

    I got round socket headed machine screws of the same type for new bedding screws - job done.
