Default How to install sling swivels! Please help

Hey guys, I have a maverick 88 and I have no idea how to install the swivels I purchased. I know I have to drill on a specific area of the stock but that's pretty much it. Can anyone help me out?

see the little stud on the bottom left of the gunstock? Thats where one generally is. Military guns are usually found near the edge of the gun down there, while wood hunting guns are generally places about 2 to 3 inches from the buttpad

ahh a synthetic stock. You have to remove the 2 end screws of the buttstock to see where is the best place to position the screw, some places they may be solid, other places are hallow

You have studs designed for a wood stocked bolt action rifle.

The wood screw stud should work in the stock but it will need to be pre-drilled and probably reinforced.

Make sure where you drill it is perfectly centered on the edge of the bottom

the small square spot on the buttstock is where the sling swivel goes. a pilot hole will have to be drilled for it, slightly under the size of the screw part of the stud.

the end of the magazine tube cap should be threaded. mine is. you need a swivel stud that has the same threads and just screw it in and mount your swivels and sling.

So all I need is the swivel stud?

So just to be clear. I have to drill one of the studs I already have to the butt stock then purchase a separate swivel stud to fit the other end?
