Is there an adaptor I can get to mount a Harris Bipod on this gas block or tube or do I need to get a different gas block? Thanks

Drill a hold on the FF tube.

DO NOT mount any thing on the barrel or gas tube, you will defeat the purpose of the FF tube. You really only have two choices,
Mount a sling stud as mentioned above. Cheapest and easiest
Buy a railed FF and get the rail mount

After looking at the pic don't use the front sling loop either.

Do not use the gas block. Drill and tap a hole for either a sling swivel or 2 holes for a short rail to mount.

Wasn't thinking when I said, change the gas block. Your right it would defeat the purpose of the FF tube.
Don't want rails. I really like the FF tube that's own here. I guess the only thing to do, if I want a bipod is modify the tube with either a rail or a stud. Thanks for the help.

I found the fix to my problem. For others with this problem of mounting a bipod to a Hogue Overmolded Float Forend. Here is the fix...
Picatinny Cuff - Rail and Swivel Stud Attachment for 2" Free Float AR Forends

$96. If you don't want drill your tube, it's to only other option that I could find. I wish Houge would have built the stud on the tube or a least give you that option.
