Jimmy, here is what the damage looked like when the rifle fell off the bench. Buying a cheaper bipod really cost me in the end. It was an RS II that every one told me could not be changed to a left hand action. Not listening as usual, I went ahead and machined it in a mirror image of the right side of the action and and fit it. It can now be changed at will. guess not that it is repaired, it is time to use good bed liner. GRRRR!!! LOL
Thanks for your concern Mike. It's just a spare, and I forgot how aggravating is was. I swapped it out for an Atlas clone right after that session. I know lots of folks say bad things about the clones, but I've got em on just about every gun I own and they've been working like a charm. A couple I had to do a little work on, but they work fine now.
I jut haven't got to the point I'll fork out $300 for a bipod yet? LOL . Maybe one day? I'd probably like the wide body, but then I think about stowing the gun in the rifle case with it? It's so much easier to fold up those little Atlas clones and they fit right in the gun cases without having to remove them?
