No, not those kind, but the leg mounting nuts on your Harris Bipods. Lost one yesterday, and I can tell you it really cants the scope with a loose leg LOL. Bolt stayed and is fine thread, but seems to be an oddball size; maybe a metric. So, today, I'll have to go to OSH who has a good variety of hardware and see if I can find that nut, otherwise will just swap it out for something close and put a NyLock nut on it to make sure.

Yep, just as I suspected, Metric #5's. Replaced them both with NyLocks, so should be good to go now.

Great advise. I would assume this would go for those that have Rockmounts too. I've read a few reviews that complained about this. I am getting ready to order a bipod and I think I'll run to the hardware store for the locking type of nuts.
