    Emmagator,

    What is a flush cup?? I've got a rifle with three studs, don't know what a flush cup is though.

    I had Tom make me one of his MCST stocks. I had 1 stud and 2 cups installed. The stud is for the bipod and the cups are on the left side of the stock. I just told Tom I wanted them on the left for my sling and he made it happen. I love them!

    Im ordering the same stock. Do you hunt with this stock? do you like the cups on the left for your sling, do they get in your way when shooting?

    Should i put the flush cups on the bottom or left side of the sling? This will be a hunting rifle. Im just unfamiliar with having the sling mounted on the side, is it better?

    It is a hunting rifle yes but it has been on no hunts just to the range so far. They do not interfear at all and I wish I had them on every stock I own. I would recomend them on the left but I'm just one man.

    So do you have both front and back cups on the side? I see some guys go front on the side and back on the bottom.

    Yes mine are both on the side and it works for me. I dont shoot the rifle with a sling. If I did I could see the point of putting the rear one on the bottom.
