    I am trying to adapt a single-point sling to a standard sling-swivel stud. The single-point sling I purchased will not attach to the small hole stud. Will a standard sling-swivel stud be adequate to mount (if possible) a single-point sling? Any suggestions?

    Every hole stud I've seen has an attachment for attaching a sling. Depends on what you're looking for. You could order one, ask the gun store, or bubba that and use a key ring.

    Damn...The key ring was my first thought as well...it stretched into an oval with just the weight of the gun! How come the perceived "easy-fixes" are the most troubling? I know I am somehow missing a super-simple solution....just hoping one of you will enlighten me!

    You need something a little more sturdy than a key ring. I would browse brownells and find a mount that is made for single point sling. Other sling swivels will allow the snap to damage your stock or position your gun upside down. I prefer the mounts that slide between the stock and the receiver.
