I just put a three rail mount in front of my front site and wanted to mounted my bipod to it. The question I have is that this new 3 rail mounts directly to the barrel and I want to make sure this isn't going to be too much weight or flex on the barrel as far as accuracy goes. It's currently mounted to my handgaurds but I want more room. It's a 16 inch barrel by the way. Any help would be appreciated. If it matters the part is from bushmaster, it mounts in from of the barrel and the rails go under the front site and one each side.

Mounting a bipod to a barrel is a bad idea. GPMGs excepted.

not to sound stupid, but what is GPMG

General Purpose Machine Gun, think M60, MG3, MG42. Usually a 7.62 or 8mm weapon, not 5.56 like the SAW. BSW

The gun will have a different point of impact when you are using the bipod as opposed to when you are not though, right?

...or is the weight of the rifle on the bipod (rather the reaction force on the barrel) not enough to cause any change?

point of impact could and probably will be effected. there are much better options out there but like bigbore stated you probably wouldnt notice the diffence
