A few weeks back I picked up a pair of spiked feet for my Harris bipods. Not knowing if I would like them I first installed them on my my el cheapo Caldwell bipod to try them out. I think they are great. So today I have been attempting to install the spiked feet onto my primary bipod, a Harris. Removing the factory feet from the Caldwell was not easy but with a little elbo grease I got them off. The Harris on the other hand, after at least 30min of whacking away with my punch pin kit, I have barley been able to get the roll pins to budge. It's driving me crazy. I am being careful after reading how some folks have broken the legs on their bipod while attempting to change the feet. I have the bipod leg attached to a board with a vice clamp (positioned at the end of the leg right near the foot to not put stress on the leg). I have been wacking away on rool pin and the thing is barely moving.

Can anyone offer advice on how to do this? Tips or tricks?

Thanks

I'd try beating them from the other side.

This is one of the many reasons I prefer Atlas.  Switching feet takes 30 seconds (if you're slow) and can be done in the field.
