I need to mount my Harris bipod on my new FIRSH. What (in your opinion) is the best adaptor to do this? There are a few out there.

I use Knight's #98060 Bipod adapter: [img]http://www.impactguns.com/store/media/kac_98060.jpg[/img] It's very solid and not much more than the cheaper plastic [cough]Fobus[/cough] alternatives.

Nice! Where is a good place to get one? I can't seem to find it at my favorite store, ADCO firearms.

Either that or the new ARMS bipod adapter. Wes at [url]www.mstn.biz[/url] will have either if either are to be had.

I really like the ARMS throw lever design. Quick on and off. I have the ARMS #22 rings for my scope. Quite a bit more than the Knights but way kewl.

Yeah, the ARMS #32 bipod adapter looks awesome. I was very close to buying one, but then I remembered that my #22M68 aimpoint mount was too loose on the top rail of my FIRSH to use! I'm afraid that I would have the same problem with the #32. The FIRSHes work fine with anything that uses standard cross-bolts, but the throw lever mount really needs a picatinny rail; I don't think the FIRSH is quite up to spec. Edited to add: I had the same problem when I tested my #19 ACOG mount on the FIRSH rail, so I don't think this was just a loose ARMS mount.

I used the KAC adapter on my FIRSH for a while and the fit was perfect. I think I bought mine from Fulton Armory.

That EE is hard to find things on. I did a search for the word BIPOD (before seeing your post here) and didn't find your posting. Went ahead and ordered from MSTN yesterday and it got here today already.

No problem, you probably would not have saved more than a few bucks. I changed my ad and now it's up for sale on the accessories and misc. Still for sale at $30, and free shipping only to active Armed Forces, our boys need all the breaks they can get on equipment. I just scored a rail forend, I might have to end up keeping it anyways. Enjoy your unit, they are very well made! Edited to say, My unit is sold now, and I got to sell it to an active duty Marine in Iraq - cool!

FWIW, I just got my ARMS #32 throw-lever harris bipod adapter from Steve @ ADCO, and it does work on all my FIRSHes. It is not tight enough that I would trust it for optics, but I think it is fine for a bipod. The Knight's adapter is probably better for use on a single gun, but I swap the bipod between 4 ARs, so I'm happy with it.

Yea, I was thinking of getting the #32. I love the ARMS stuff but sometimes the cost doesn't justify the benifit of the throw levers. I did get the #22 scope rings.
