Shotgun sling studs

Recommended Posts

So I'm finally getting around to putting a sling on my Wildfowling o/u. I bought the sling yesterday and it already has the lockable swivels. I need to put a stud in the stock.

I was looking online today and was going to order the usual screw stud, but came on a stud with brass knurls and is not pointy.It is saying it is a stronger job when put in with epoxy. It is shorter than the more common stock pointed screw.

Anyone have any experience with the knurled one? as a pair is considerably dearer than the more common ones.I don't mind paying extra if they are a stronger job. Thanks.

Ps Sorry put this in the wrong section. Should have been guns and equipment.

Less chance of splitting your stock wide open using the knurled + epoxy resine option.

Just make sure you fully mask the area before drilling, because any slip and your stock will be, ahem poorly.

Yes that seems to be the idea alright. Sounds a sturdier job also. However I went to order a pair today and realised they would be shipped from the states and the cost was ridiculous. I couldn't find the same studs this side of the pond so just ordered the the ordinary ones. Was speaking with the gunsmith and he said he usually uses epoxy resin with the ordinary ones anyhow. 

Thanks for the reply 👍

Also remember to drill at a slight angle, as the stock is sloping... something I only considered AFTER I drilled a hole straight 'down' at 90' on my Semi, luckily I used Epoxy resin as well as screwing it into the wood to make it extra solid so was able to re drill the hole slightly to make the stud flush with the stock!

The stud on the front of my Mauser was screwed into wood square on. It lasted just two years. It's now in with two pack.

I meant on the butt stock, on my semi auto I just bought an after market magazine tube end cap that had a sling swivel on it so didn't touch the front end with a stud.

I've got a set of pachamyr flush fit swivels if they're any good to you?  They're a quick detach type with a T shape end. If I can find them you can have them for 25 quid posted which is what they cost me.

Thanks for that! That is good to know.

I was considering doing it myself but I think I will pay the old gunsmith a visit. It will be done right and I also haven't seen him in quite a few years. Being a character I enjoy his company and could happily spend a few hours with him.

I only need a stud for the stock,as the sling I bought has the swivels attached and the gun came with a sling attachment welded under the barrels.

Thanks for the offer though.
