Archangel Mosin Nagant stock w/ bipod
Has anybody who received a pre-ordered Archangel Mosin stock installed a bipod yet? I'm at the point, and I'm curious as to what experience others are having.
In the video (Archangel Mosin Nagant Q&A - YouTube) at 2:50, the gentleman explains that the stock can be drilled out to accept a sling swivel stud (included), but the one in the package looks like a drywall screw with a sling swivel on the end. Is anybody else here planning on using this hardware? If not, please share what you *are* planning on using.
Second, I looked at Harris' (crappy) web page today and noticed there are LOTS of different bipods. Any advice as to what a first-time bipod purchaser should look for in a bipod? One option that looking neat was a bracket which allowed the rifle to traverse side-to-side on the bipod.
Thanks for the input, duderinos and duderinas.

Thanks for the reminder. I saw that thread, but my specific questions were not addressed within the body of it.

So they used a coarse wood screw for the bipod mount? Seems fine considering its screwing into plastic.D͉̰̺̥̓̉̒̐̾e̩͚̒͂ͮ̆̀̂ͫa͈̠͎͉̘t̤̙͇h̻͇̪̞͖͎̱̀ͣ̉̓ ̠̩̥̖͖̠ͥͩͬB̖̹̣̠̘̅ė̪̓ͥ̔̎f͓̪͖̫̖̂̌ͮ̓͑̾o͂̑r̠̗͎͓̣͓ͧ̓e̾̒ ̻̲̦̒ ͎̣͈͂ͨD͕̟̪͖̪̗̍̅̌̈́ͮ͑ȋ̔̽̍̒s̙̤͍ͤ̂̈ͪͩͨḫ̭͒̿͗ͬͥ̉ͪö͖́ͫ̏ ̩͚̺̳̯n̞̱͙͎͇̖̉ͧo̲͋rͦ͐

Bipod - If you're going with Harris I would recommend the BRMS. Swivel head and notched legs. Legs are easy to deploy and lock in easily and great if ever shooting on uneven terrain. Swivel head makes adjustments easy.
If you plan on shooting on a bench or concrete only then it doesn't really matter.
