okay as MM13 said that is the wrong kit for your shotgun. need to order or buy one for a Mossberg 500.

the stud is the part that goes into the buttstock and fore end that holds the swivel. the swivel is the part that the sling threads into.

here is a link to a kit i have used before many times. from Brownell's.

Ok cool. I think I got it now. When I drill the one that goes into the buttstock do I have to take the entire stock out or do I just drill it as is?

You know what ticks me off? I specifically told the sales associate at dicks I needed specific parts in order to install a sling and told him I had a mossberg maverick 88, at first he told me I didn't need anything except the sling then when I persisted, because I already had an idea, he just gave me the ones I have now. I even asked if he was sure and he looked at me in my face and lied. Smh.

lot's of salesman have no clue about guns, and he would have probably given the same answer if you were asking about a toaster!

ya don't really need a sling at the gun range. Take your time, get the right parts and before turkey hunting you will be all set.
