Default Mini-14, Mo-Rod & a Bipod

So I've been thinking about how to mount a bipod on my Mini-14 without using the typical klinky way of doing it using the Harris bipod adapter. That thing never looked like it was what I wanted. So I got to thinking, why not take advantage of the Mo-Rod installation I had? I ordered a UTG Single Rail Barrel Mount Adapter MNT-BR002S for $6.50 on Amazon, lined it with a couple of strips of rubber inner-tube material and attached it to the Mo-Rod with the medium screws. Piece of cake, and looked great.

Then I ordered the UTG Rail-mount Tactical OP-2 Bipod form Amazon for $29.95 and installed it on the new rail adpater installed on the Mo-Rod. The results are a rock-solid bipod on my Mini that can be easily removed when not wanted. I'm thrilled with the results for under $40. This would all also work the same if you have a Accu-strut or Har-Bar on your Mini.

That's a very clever idea. Does it affect the MoRod's stabilization factor?

None at all, at the range shooting from the bench my accuracy was improved, but I think it was because I had a better support system from the bipod.

That's a great use of the Mo-Rod, but Snakedriver is sporting a 1st-generation set of clamps in those photos. We need to get him modernized ASAP! His Mini will be looking more like this in no time...

Thanks to Kelly at MoRod.Com for upgrading my Mo-Rod to the new clamps and finish. The whole set-up looks great. First-class service as usual.

Here's the new photos for you to comare with:
