    Stock colors are

    50% OD
    25% Brown
    25% Grey

    Stock came out really nicely i think. Im glad I went with the brown rather than tan.

    Great looking gun!!!!!

    What caught my attention was the spiked feet on your bipod. What's the story on them?

    I'm interested in the bipod feet too...

    I like the stock colors, it looks like traces of blood on it! I'm sure you can't wait to get some real blood on it...

    The bipod feet are made by Gunworks in Canterbury in NZ. They are machined from solid stainless and work extremely well on almost every surface! (don't slip at all) Makes a huge difference when shooting with a small amount of forward pressure on the rifle

    Hard to tell from the pic but, how are the SS feet fastened to the bipod?

    the SS spikes are attached with a SS cap screw.

    You need to remove the Standard roll pin that holds the spring and feet. then replace it with the cap screw. was a little fiddly I found, but not too hard once I figured out the correct sequence.

    Thanks for responding, they do look like they would dig in and hold pretty good.
