    The Bipod on your Axis looks like it's on backwards... My Harris 6-9 the legs fold forward towards the muzzle of the rifle. When you load the bi-pod when shooting, the legs will collapse on you, additionally, the Pod lock should be facing towards the rear of the gun, so you can reach up and loosen or tighten it without having to break your cheek weld.

    Thanks, going to swap it right now, before I forget, THANKS!

    That makes sense!

    What do you recommend the first eye bolt or the second?

    Bipond would go on the front stud and then you can use the second stud to attach a sling if you want.
