    Im about to order a Manners stock. Do you guys run two studs up front? One for bipod and one for sling?

    I do, really helps when you have a bi-pod, usually the bi pod digs into my shoulder, not anymore haha.

    I use a stud for the bipod and a flush cup behind it for the sling. Remember to put the rear stud or cup farther to the rear if you plan on adding a Podlock to the bipod.

    I got an A-5 for a friend.....you could not use both studs. i planned on using the front stud for the bipod and the second one for the sling. NO-GO. Maybe I need to try a differant bipod. I have a Harris with the swival. It does not rotate L-R, but side to side for un-even ground. I ended up using the sling attachment on the bipod.

    Does a strait, no frills Harris work?

    I have a Harris pivot as well, so will this not work with two front studs? I need to tell Manners what setup i need to i can use my Harris bipod. Should i go standard stud up front then a couple flush cups for sling?

    I also have a side to side pivot harris and mine works with a sling with 2 studs up front, just have your stock builder put one stud and add another yourself in the roper spacing.
