XP 100 adding swivel studs Login/Join 



posted
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for adding swivel studs to the XP? I have a 223 in the black stock and was wondering if I need to worry about possible cracking once installed.

I believe there is a specific insert made for the XP that uses the existing holes in the stock.

I believe all that is needed is the clearance hole for the threaded shank.

Freeze,

I believe he's talking about the black colored zytel factory stock. I'm fairly certain it does not have any holes. I would drill the hole where you want the swivel and install with a washer on the nut side then fill the channel area with epoxy around the nut to spread out the stress on the plastic from the bipod I'm assuming your going to use. Better yet I would get myself a Xmas present and replace the stock with one of aftermarket stocks with a wider forend and more material to install the swivel stud into. I have a difficult time holding those skinny factory forends steady and have replaced all mine, makes a huge difference.

Nitemann, thanks for clarifying and correcting me.
I learn something everyday.

I have never seen a black version of the factory stock, and didn't realize it differed in anyway but color.

I apologise for my misleading first post.

Larry, I'm not sure about the black stocks but the brown ones I have had 3 or 4 holes in the forend so that you could insert a 38 special round into the hole or holes to add weight. Don't know why you couldn't drill a hole dead center through the bottom of one of those holes and use a washer & nut on the inside. I'd measure how much stock thickness before drilling in those holes. Rick's right about upgrading stocks to something a little easier to shoot. That way you wouldn't have to butcher your black one just in case you want to sell it. There are some good buys out there that won't break the bank.

Thanks all. There are holes for weights and I did find an adapter at Brownells. Still new to the XP Smile

Is that the one that clamps to the barrel?

Larry K,

If you are planning to use a bipod, there is also an adapter plate available for the harris bipods (Adapter #8). The Harris kit comes with the adapter and stud.

Here is one example but feel free to use your favorite merchant to make the purchase ....
