A follow-up to the Remington 710, the Remington Model 770 is an economy hunting rifle in Remington's 700 series of rifles. Upgrades include a stainless steel action and barrel and optional camouflage finish. Mounting a bipod on the front of the Remington 770 provides a stable shooting platform for long-range shooting for target practice and hunting. Most aftermarket bipods are made to be readily detachable, and, as the Model 770 also comes factory-equipped with sling swivel studs, can be attached with the turn of a screw.

    Orient the bipod the bipod's legs so they are pointing forward, toward the front of the barrel.

    Tighten the attachment screw with your fingers while guiding the mounting studs into the holes on the sling-swivel stud. Use screwdriver to finish tightening the attachment screw.

Tips and warnings

  • Face the legs of the bipod forward so the will not interfere with griping the rifle or carrying it on a sling when it is over your shoulder.
  • Use thread sealer on the mounting screw to prevent it from working lose.
  • Check the attachment screw periodically to be sure it does not loosen.
