I've had one of those for awhile. Was made for the M14 version that was supposed to replace the BAR.

Way too heavy & flops around. Not easily detachable. IMO it has no useful role in field use. Mine stays in a parts box.

Better to replace the front sling swivel with the version that has the short pic rail & then use a Harris or the several others that attach to a pic rail.

And that’s exactly what I did and attached a Caldwell Bi-Pod that works great.

Sorry, I tried one of these on my M1A and it didn't fit or work well. When folded up and back, the feet bounced off of the wood stock. The contour of the clamp on the bipod was not machined correctly and didn't clamp onto the gas cylinder very straight. You could clamp it down tightly, but I was concerned that the clamp would start flattening down the edges on the gas cylinder where the contour did not get machined down correctly. Sorry.
