So I own a SPS Tactical. I ordered a Bushnell 4200 Elite 6-24x50mm Tactical and Burris Xtreme Medium height rings. They are going on a Millet 0 MOA Tactical base. Since I only plan to shoot out to 600 yards this should be fine. I plan on huntng deer and pigs as well as target shoot with this rifle. My question to yall is which bipod from Harris would be best and has the swivle sling at the bottom so I can still use my sling? I like the 9-13" since I won't be shooting much off a bench other than at the range and even then I will use my bags. If yall have had any experience with this topic please feel free to chime in. Thanks in advance.

I think the 9-13" size would be best. I looked into this myself, and I shoot mostly off a bench, so a 6-9" would be good for me I think, but for shooting prone you would need a little higher size I think.

9-13" for prone, and a 6-9" for the bench. But the best thing you can do is try and borrow one of each and thry them out and see what you like.

Get the Harris 9" to 13" BR model with swivel and the notched legs. Only othe thing you might need is a pod lock and practice.

Which ever model you choose,Do yourself a favor and get a second swivel stud and mount your
sling to it,not to the bipod.I had a bad experience with my sling attached to the bipod and
my rifle and scope were both damaged as well as myself....... DONT TRUST IT!
YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN..VERN ?

YOU WOULD BE BETTER OFF TO DRILL AND TAP,FOR ANOTHER STUD THAN ATTACH TO THE BIPOD
SLING ATTACHMENT THAT IS MADE AS PART OF BIPOD,WHICH IN MY CASE WORKED LOOSE WHILE
I WAS CARRYING THE RIFLE SLUNG OVER MY SHOULDER.IT LET GO AND RIFLE AND SCOPE WENT
CRASHING TO THE GROUND.IT DAMAGED MY RIFLE AND BROKE MY SCOPE AND SCRATCHED THE
RIGHT SIDE OF MY FACE. SO I DONT TRUST THAT METHOD OF ATTACHMENT. AND YES IT WAS A
HARRIS BIPOD. SO NOW I MAKE SURE ALL MY RIFLES NOW HAVE 2ND STUD! ITS NOT THAT BIG
OF A JOB TO DO IT,AND THE STUD IS NOT THAT EXSPENSIVE.

I agree. The Harris bipods have sling attachments that can be used on the bipods. However, they pretty much require the rifle to be carried muzzle down (which may not be an issue to some) unless you want the bipod body digging into your shoulder. I've never used them for that reason and the swivel model isn't comfortable if you're using a podlock. Some get around that by padding the lever with duct tape or similar.
As for installing a new sling stud on the Overmold stock, it may not be too sturdy. The stock construction may not have enough meat for the second one to attach and hold on to. There really isn't much underneath that rubber grip surface.
