Accuracy Solutions FAQ
Accuracy Solutions is dedicated to providing its customers with high-quality products that not only enhance their rifle shooting experience but allow them to improve their shooting ability in an effective and fun way. Since extending the resting point of your bipod is a relatively new way of doing things, there are a few questions we want to answer for you.
Yes, but in a very few instances special adaptations may be needed. Please read on.
Tactical Rifles: Accuracy Solutions is designed to attach to a Picatinny rail. Many tactical rifles already have a Picatinny rail along the bottom of the forend, but if yours does not, it can easily be fitted with one and the most popular versions are provided in your BipodeXt kit. Installation of one of these rails only takes a few moments and is done with simple hand tools which are included.
Hunting Rifles: Accuracy Solutions is designed to attach to a Picatinny rail, thus the forend of the receiving rifle must be fitted with one. Adapting a Picatinny rail to the forend of a hunting‑style rifle may require that holes be drilled into the stock’s forend. If you are comfortable working on your rifle and own power tools, such as a table drill, you should be able to adapt a Picatinny rail to your rifle in one to two hours.* A tilted rail is included in the case which creates an attachment point parallel to the axis of your bore.
*WARNING: If you do not possess the skills and necessary tools you should NOT attempt any modifications to your rifle yourself. Instead, take your gun to a qualified gunsmith. The work should take no more than two hours.
BipodeXt comes factory-set to receive both Picatinny rail mounted bipods and Harris style sling swivel stud mounted bipods. This means that BipodeXt ships with a pre-installed sling stud and 5-Slot Picatinny rail.
This question is dependant on which model BipodeXt you choose to purchase. Our TAC II weighs in lighter than our TAC III but all models weigh at or below 32oz.
The answer(s) to this question will be obvious to some readers, but perhaps not so to all readers. The reason you do not want to attach the bipod to your barrel is because you wouldn’t be happy with your shooting performance.
As a fired bullet travels through the barrel, it (the barrel) is subjected to a dynamic oscillation known as barrel harmonics. Though not really perceivable to the naked eye, the barrel experiences an oscillating movement as the bullet traverses it.
Free Floating Barrels
Expanding on the above answer, knowledgeable shooters do what they can to keep their barrels free floating above their stock. What is a free‑floating barrel then? It is a barrel that does not touch the forend of the stock (though the forend embraces it). This allows the barrel to oscillate and thus play its harmonics.
To put it simply, for the best shooting experience, leave your barrel alone! Under most circumstances you should not affix or attach anything to your barrel, let it be free to play to its own tune.
Whether you will be installing it to a tactical or hunting rifle, or if you own a Harris style sling swivel stud mounted bipod or picatinny rail mounted bipod, all necessary hardware is included. No tools, besides Allen wrenches, are included.
