Sling Stud Repair Kit

Hi,

My rear stud for attaching sling is stripped out. My stock is a Mcmillan A-5. I would like to know the best way to fix this or is there a kit that is made?

The stud appears to have threads like a wood screw. Wondering if I can just use bedding material and re-attach or there something better. Thanks for looking.

Ray

Re: Sling Stud Repair Kit

You can try the bedding compound.

When I install rear sling studs into my stocks, I make a threaded aluminum pillar and use a 10x32 machine thread stud. I mill the stock and epoxy the pillar in place.

A picture's worth a thousand words...
