Installing rear sling stud in McMillan center-grip stock Login/Join 



posted
I've got one of the McMillan center grip stocks from the recent group buy and am thinking about installing a rear sling stud. What would be the best way to go about doing so?

In the side of the stock. I would put a small pillar in

Thanks Hoggin. Would it be possible to go in from the side and tap into the aluminum bedding block rather than installing a pillar?

oregon45,
I've installed rear swivel studs in 1 Striker and a number of XP's at the very rear of the stock, just under the rearest part of the action, using a T-nut. I insert the T-nut from the inside of the stock. I usually have to trim some of the "wings" portion of the T-nut for it to fit well. I use some 2 part epoxy as well.


Good luck and good hunting.

The aluminum block is pretty far in. I’d worry the stud would still wiggle near the top and damage your stock

Thanks Hoggin, I'll go with a pillar then.

This is what I have done as well. Works great!
