    There are plenty that will... some are crappier than others (obviously).

    Harris makes some quality bipods.

    You can get bipods that will mount directly to a sling stud. If your stock doesn't have one, you can put one on very easily.

    Most bipods should attach with the sling swivel. Get the Harris Series S bipods . :)

    I moved the sling swivel on my T/C a few days ago because in it's factory position it wouldn't work with a bipod. Super Easy.

    I put a bipod on my .22 Marlin..

    Drilled a hole and screwed in one of the Uncle Mike's swivel studs, then attached a Rock Mount bipod.

    $50 walmart trip for everything, including bipod.

    They changed a lot when they switched from the regular composite stock to the Flextech.

    The original flex tech stocks had molded in swivels too, but there was a problem with them breaking so apparently they've switched to steel.

    Even then they put the stud at an angle in the little bend at the front of the stock. Probably works good for a sling but was a no go for the bipod. I think I'll pick up another stud and keep two on it.
