    Hey everyone! just picked up a brand new rifle! (yaaaay me) :p Is there a bipod available for the Marlin XT-22 that DOESN'T require me drilling into my stock? The average swivel adapter won't work due to the sling mounts being molded. :(

    It's an XT-22 (Mag) w/ a Tube Magazine.

    being molded in, that means you probably have the plastic stock. you need to find some sort of adapter that you can mount directly to the stock with screws. or, remove the stock and drill it for a conventional sling swivel stud.

    Thanks. Well, after doing some difficult searching I managed to find a Harris bipod that supposedly mounts flush on my stock. Has anyone had any experience with it (or similar types)?

    Be careful I'm trying to buy the woods stock for mine to eliminate any further issues with this problem

    That was your choice when you purchased the rifle, wood stocks run more money. Pay me now or pay me latter, I believe is the expression.

    Well Jim let me explain myself.The comment isn't just me venting my frustration, its a valid question wouldn't you say? I mean, I'm a fairly new gun owner but I've also owned numerous businesses so when I see something like this I ask myself, "what did they gain by creating a molded sling mount like this one"? Why was it created this way when there aren't any accessories or bipods that can be easily attached due to its uniqueness?
    Honestly, the only thing I could come up with is that maybe it was never meant to have one attached... Period. So that's how I shot it all weekend! Lol. And if course I loved it, it's still ridiculously accurate!
    A buddy and I shot both the XT-22 Mag & LR models with not a single complaint. Actually, he loved my rifles so much that he's now looking for an XT-HMR (which I scooped up right after we shot the first day). And that doesn't even have a MOLDED sling mount! I actually own the XT-22TR, TX-22MTR, 795, XT-22HMR, and have a Papoose on order.
    Needless to say, I love Marlin 22s. I just can't see why they didnt put normal swivel mounts on ALL their rifles. They have em on a 60 (tube version of 795). And don't tell me cost cause we're not talking about a $50 part or something. Lol.
    And no.... I don't expect you to have the answer. ;)
