Default Need to install a Sling swivel Stud.

OK I have this.


I want to put it on this. (the one in the middle with the white diamond). I figured I would put it half way between the diamond and the other swivel stud.


It says 10-32 What drill size should I use for the hole? What should I use to hold it in the stock? This stud id only going to be used for a bipod.

I was thinking something like this to glue it in. Shop Devcon 0.84-Oz. 5 Minute® Gel Epoxy at Lowes.com

Any good epoxy should work. As far as the size of the drill bit, I just place the bit next to the piece and use the Mark 1 Eyeball comparison.

If you are worried about the epoxy why not go with a screw-in version?

Because that stock is one expensive piece of California Black Walnut.

Assuming you are removing the stock to do the work, I would drill the hole from the finished side of the stock the same size as the insert.

Then from the inside, dremel out enough material (2X insert dia. ?) to give it a good hold, and I would use the bedding compound as suggested. Protect the finished wood area well with tape or some form of release agent to prevent any overflows from getting on it.

I'm no gunsmith however!

The 10x32 part is the metal threads of the stud itself. I'd recommend drilling the hole 1 size bigger than the insert and using Acra-Glas Gel to ensure the insert won't ever come out.

Good suggestion here.........however, you can just use a larger size drill bit instead of a dremel on the inside.

If you're not removing the stock to do the job, then one size over drilled and epoxy it in place.

He's GOT to remove the stock if he don't want to chance permanently gluing the stock to the barrel! I wouldn't make the hole a full 2x the size of the insert however. The hole can be just a little bigger than the insert.
