So I've been putting together an 20" upper and optic combo with the intent of making a DMR type of gun. I've got the upper and optic sorted out but my bipod choice is giving me trouble.

I went with the BCM SS410 20" with the SAM-R profile barrel and their M-Lok handguard because I've standardized on M-Lok. I went with the Magpul bipod. My problem is that the barrel is thick, along with the gas block, and/or the handguard is so trim that there isn't enough room between the inside of the handguard and the barrel or underside of the gas block for the bipod to lock it in. Trying to move it back to a slot clear of the gas block and I run into the problem of the barrel itself being so thick there isn't clearance between the M-Lok attachment screws.

I know Vltor makes a two-piece bipod that could possibly attach on the sides but they aren't M-Lok. Does anybody have any other suggestions for bipods that are M-Lok attach and they mount to the sides of the handguard instead of at the bottom?

I got the VLTOR bipod legs off a buddy and currently have them on the RPR. They work pretty well. Not especially fast or convenient, but they're serviceable. My RPR has the gen 1 keymod handguard, so I added magpul rail sections to it.

My buddy has an Atlas bipod for his RPR and it's really damn nice, but it's a bottom pic-rail mount.

Here's a top mount bipod.

Pretty pricey, but you might be able to find something like that.

The slightly less expensive route would be the UTG side mounts. No idea as to the quality, but UTG is pretty well known for being poverty tier.

Another shot of the VLTOR modpod legs on the SCAR 17. Back when bullet buttons were a thing in California.

The 17 is currently a bolt action rifle (with gas system removed) until I can fix the stock, wrap the pistol grip, and swap the FSC for a non flash hiding muzzle brake.

Not even. I had some airsoft guns and accessories by them when I was in middle school circa 2004. And even they couldn't hold up to walking around in the woods for a few hours every weekend in the summer.

But, I have a morbid curiosity about their US made accessories now...

Thought I'd let y'all know I did a bit of a work around. Rather than going with an airsoft bipod or shelling out £330 for that neat top-mounted model, I trimmed down the screws on the M-Lok attachment so that they don't contact the barrel. I still had to use the next slot back from the gas block because the little rotating piece itself is too thick to fit between that and the handguard. While it's not a whole lot of clearance between the barrel and the screw, it's clearance.
