Any idea what mount(s) the military is using these days for issued Harris Bipods? I used to think ARMS, but I'm not so sure.

KAC, YHM, CAA, they're usually unit purchase items unless included as part of a weapon "system" like the M110, and no real "standard" that I'm aware of.  

The M27 uses a LaRue integrated mount.

I think I got one on Cheaperthandirt at one point. I've got one at home somewhere. Harris Has links to them on their website if I am not mistaken

It's basically just a simple Rail Mount that the Harris Bipod clips into. Fairly universal. If you're buying it yourself, spend the 30 bucks and get the ones that are decently made, not the ones that are 10 bucks - they don't lock in as well.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm really looking for something QD to go on my M4A1 SOPMOD Block II clone, and stay "accurate".

I would get the LT130 mount or an LT706 integrated bipod and call it a day.

FWIW - it's what I use.  

It does not strain the imagination in the least for an end user to have ordered an LT130 if it weren't issued to them.  A QD bipod seems almost a no-brainer to me.  IMHO, a "hard mounted" bipod as opposed to one on an LT or other QD mount is foolish.  It's no less sturdy, but it makes the rifle infinitely more flexible.  

If you're thinking "perfect clone," you could always use the integrated bipod and claim a Marine jacked one off an M27.

Or stole one from a Mk12. Those have ARMS mounts or KAC.

I mainly see the Larue mounts on M27's.

The LT706 is perfect if you ask me.

Well, I had considered a Pod Lock, but maybe I should look at the big knob instead?

I have neither, but would probably prefer the LT-style knob to the pod-lock.

Have frankly not found it too problematic to simply use the stock knob - but then again, I only use my bipod in relatively static situations.  I'm certainly no sniper.

Well, almost perfect. I hate the knob.

If used on a precision rig, once you get into your position/hide/bench/whatever, I want to wrench it down once it's level.

The knob is harder to achieve that degree of tightness and is also hard to manipulate with gloves on. So it gets changed to a lever style.
