The 'Universal' design of this adapter allows it to function with the following products

This link to a 'You Tube' video, shows the installation of the 'Universal Rifle Adapter' This adapter is normally supplied with the bipod in the box, and has the sling attachment point on it. This adapter is designed to replace you existing 'QD' sling swivel point.
Depending upon the depth of the stock body slightly larger and longer 5mm screw, washer & half nut are required to hold the adapter to the stock & clear the underside of the barrel. This will require the adapter hole to be drilled out from 5mm to 6mm.
Alternatively you could use this stud to fit our 'Universal Guide Adapter'.
The 'Guide Adapter' has really be designed for the professional hunting community. The feedback that we had from them is that they like the Javelin bipod, and especially the 'Kapita' & 'Sentinel' tripods, due to the support & stability it can offer clients with important shots. What they were less keen. on was having to temporarily adapt a visiting clients rifle to allow the use of these products.
They wanted an adapter that could be simply added to the clients rifle for the duration of the hunt, and then removed once they were finished. The 'Guide' adapter achieves this by pinning the 'Over Screw' to the existing sling swivel stud of the rifle.
This then becomes the anchor point for fitting the main adapter body, which in turn is secured to the 'Over Screw', by a large nut. The rifle sling can then re-attached onto the mounting point of the adapter.
The design of the 'Guide' adapter offers the same functionality of the the existing adapters with the Javelin & '300' bipods and 'capita' & 'Sentinel' tripod. It can also be mounted with the socket for the bipod facing with towards or away from the muzzle for greater flexibility.
However the 'Universal Guide Adapter' was not really designed for the owner of a rifle looking for a permanent fitting.
Its design will require more attention to ensure that it is firmly fitted, to the rifle. The design also necessitates that it is larger then the other adapter options, which may be an issue for some users, where other adapters may be a more suitable choice. This adapter is also also available as an additional accessory, and is more expensive duet to the additional work in manufacturing it.
