    i have a sako 85 and fitted with a t8 mod the rubber tips do rest on the mod but it this has no impact on the rifle as the spings are at rest and my mod has camtype around it as socks can let water in under them and rust a t8
    if you feel it has an impack on your rifle as james above states may be he could make you a spacer and extended fitting to replace your one

    I have almost exactly the same setup and from memory the feet just clear the mod... the bipod is a Harris but I can't remember the exact specs. It could just be down to manufacturing differences but by the sound of it you are sorted now anyway! Well done Rotwild!
