Mosin M44 Scout Mod – Part 7 of 7 – Stealth Bipod

Posted by 28th April 2011

Well, I couldn’t leave well enough alone so I started building a bipod for my mosin scout. This one is a little different because it folds completely away into the stock when not in use. It is also completely integrated into the stock and doesn’t touch the barrel at all, so everything is still free-floated. I had to dust off my old auto-body shop skills for this one and do a lot of welding, sanding, and bondo-work, but I think it was worth it. For the sake of simplicity and shared parts, I made the sling swivel stud double as the retainer mechanism for the bipod. You just spin the quick-connect clip sideways, spin the retainer latch 90 degrees, and the bipod pops out a little bit so you can grab it, swing it down, and lock it into the upright position.

Well, I think I can finally say that I’m basically done with this rifle mod. I still need to Duracoat the entire thing, but that’s a minor mod that I probably won’t even bother posting it. Now to focus on my “Mosunov” rifle!
