While it is possible, and I have used a bipod on a springer (Gamo Silent Cat), I do not recommend it unless you wish to have a gun designated for stationary shooting. I used to have a UTG Dragon Claw barrel-clamp bipod mounted at the junction of the barrel and suppressor, and while it did very well for shooting from a deck rail at a distance of 20 yards or so, it made it difficult to use for any other purpose. As has been mentioned, prone shooting became difficult and free-standing shooting nearly impossible, due to the added weight at the barrel. As far as “Barrel Harmonics” is concerned, I did not notice much difference in the groupings when used in its designated position. My bottom line- Unless you have enough money to have one gun for each style of shooting, I would not recommend wasting your time and money.
