It would have to slide over the barrel I’m guessing. I’ve never put a bipod on any of bolt actions. Was just thinking it may make learning rifle easier for them.

Putting anything on a barrel will affect accuracy harmonics...that's one of the reasons they free float a barrel in a stock.


While I did notice they had one that did slip over the barrel, it's not recommended.



...and yes, a bipod or rest will help them be more steady, thus more accurate.
