Seems like all the bipods I come across are for the old school sling attachment points.
Are there any for the new style push button QD style sockets ?
Don't really want to add a picatinny rail to the bottom of my tube.

Does your handguard have m-lok slots?

No...

It is a Wilson Combat T.R.I.M. tube.
Has a 1/4-20 threaded hole, that I found a 1/4-20 threaded QD socket for (out of Israel of all places).

I haven't seen any bipod that uses a QD socket.

Wilson used to make a sling stud for the TRIM rails, but they discontinued them when they got rid of the old style of rail.

Crap, another accessory that I will have to make myself...

Sounds like you could use the 1/4-20 hole to bolt a section of rail to your hand guard and mount a bipod to that if you have to.

How about this?  I have a similar one on the bottom of my handguard that I use for my Harris bipod.

This is the 'old school' sling swivel you referenced, but it doesn't require a pic rail.

That was my thought too, but I couldn't find anything with the same thread pitch as the rail. The Grovtec might work though.

rzrsedge, I was trying to avoid stacking pieces.

Plasticseng, that may work!
Wilson put 1/4-20 tapped holes every inch along the bottom, I can just move the socket back a ways, and put that stud at the front.

Thanks !

The more I look at that, the more it looks like mine that has a 10-32 thread.   I'm not sure I trust that description.  

I would think someone would make one with a 1/4-20 thread, but I don't see any that specifically call it out.


These may work.  If I am reading this right, you can snap them into your QD socket and then use a Harris style bipod on them.

Didn't realize the first one was in Canada...
They want $20 just to ship it, kind of a turn-off.
Didn't think about them possibly screwing up a thread spec., but an e-mail would take care of that.
Did look at the GroveTec, may go with them, just want to find out how they are released.
Again, an e-mail will probably shed some light.

Found it...
Another hex key to carry around.
Damn-it.

Novekse makes a flush-mount QD socket.

1/2 inch hole must be drilled, material thickness of less than 1/4 inch, 5/8 inch wrench, QD swivel. Permanent thread locker is recommended. Black.

The one thing that may be a problem, the one I see from them that is 1/4x20 isn't threaded all the way to the shoulder.
