    For my Marlin 60.. at present I'm pretty sure there is no way for me to mount a bipod, but I'm wondering if there is a way I can mod the current stock to accept one.. Or if there is some type of kit...

    Mount a sling swivel in the front, and rock on.

    Wood or plastic stock?

    Drill a hole slightly smaller than the sling swivel screw and screw it in. I did that on a synthetic stock and it help up good. Harris makes a nice bipod that attaches via swivel stud.

    Preeeeeeeeezactly. I see you've cracked a stock or two before you started drilling the pilot hole first? :rofl:

    Use a Allen wrench through the stud hole for leverage when screwing it in. Uncle Mikes has what you are looking for.

    So forgive my ignorance but... The bipod mounts to the sling swivel?

    That's a machine screw, you are looking for a wood screw; IE the ones with the pointy tips.

    I use the Uncle Mikes screws. They come with like two studs, white spacer, and I think maybe even sling swivels. I get them at my local Wal-Mart, they are pretty cheap.

    While not a 100% bomb proof mounting solution, I've had no problems and I'd be willing to bet I'm harder on rifle stuff than many. Just don't be trying to use your bipod as a pry bar or anything crazy like that and you should be fine. Assuming this is a beech stock, BFD if it rips out, those are cheap.
