    Harris bipods are a standard for hunting and Caldwell bipods are a close copy and very functional. Len has a pretty neat Caldwell bipod for sale on this site that already has bipod lock installed. Really nice and at a good price.

    If I were going to for a Caldwell, I would get the one below just for the bipod lock.

    Caldwell XLA Bipods

    You can mount a Magpull rail on the forearm. Use one hole for the sling swivel. They are about $5. The rails are about 2 1/2 inches long and very low profile.

    Seekin makes a SRS rail, pict. style for the QD plates on Atlas that are nice then you just move bipod rifle to rifle. takes seconds with QD, has a sling hole you can run front or back, mine are back as I front carry rifle, like military.
