First off, thanks as always for looking

There is a small piece under the FSB on my Colt 6400c that I am unfamiliar with. if you know what it is please let me know.



Is it a mount for a sling swivel or bipod, or something else entirely?

Thanks in advance!

Its for a sling loop..........UNDERDOG

It is normally where the sling mount goes. Since the rifle has a side sling mount, there is no sense putting one there.

Would you prefer electric pink? [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/mystery_piece3.JPG[/img] [:D][;)] Thanks for the help guys. I've been trying to find a way to temporarily mount my Harris bipod to sight the gun in properly. I can't use a Harris #5 AR mount because the M4 handguards have double heatshields so the adapter doesn't fit. Oh well...

Buy a rifle rest it can be used with all your rifle/shotgun zero needs. it is a good investment.

I have one, but my range lacks a bench at the 50 meter line so I have to shoot prone. Using my rest while prone is pretty awkward. I guess I'll have to try it anyway-or maybe use my range bag as a makeshift rest.

You know that that top heatshield that is stamped "do not remove" is removeable? Just sqeeze it together at the ends and the little tabs will clear the retainers and the shield will lift out. I do not know if there is enough clearance for the #5 and both sheilds but you could alway install it and leave the top shield out.

I was not aware of that. I'll try it now-thank you sir [:)]

The top shield is glued in, but if I can break the glue seal it looks like the #5 will work. I could always drill a small hole in the end of the top shield to clear the adapter if heat becomes an issue. Thanks again!

Well, they DO sell short picatinney rails for M4 handguards, which if you had one, you could attach a bipod mount, then the bipod...

[b]WooHoo!![/b] [:)][:)] It worked...thank you LuckyStiff. If that hadn't worked I would have gone the route that AK_Mike suggested. [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/M4_Harris.JPG[/img]
