Default How would I mount a rail on this handguard?

Im thinking of picking up this handguard and was wondering if it would be possible to mount a small rail on the front of it for a bipod http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=5...ree-Float-Tube

It doesnt have any holes so would I just have to drill a couple for the rail?

im sure it would work. you could probably just drill and tap a hole for a sling swivel and mount the bipod directly to it. would save a few bucks.

Have to either mill the bottom of a rail to fit the hand guard or mill a spot on the guard for the rail....then drill and tap the holes....insert screws with thread lock.
The guard is aluminum...so it will be easy to tap.
+1 for just adding the sling swivel is that is all you need.

Pretty simple. Just add a sling stud that the bipod can clamp to. Basically just drill 1 hole and put the stud through then tighten the nut. Easy.

I have one fixed up just like that. You can order the sling stud from Brownells also. Good luck!
