    Default Changing Pachmyer Sling Studs To Regular Studs

    On my .338 and .500 A-Square stocks there are Pachmyer recessed studs installed. I don't like these as the quick release "swivel" is only 1" wide and I want to use Turner Saddlery's National Match m1907 slings which are 1 1/4".

    Question: is there a way to easily remove these studs or should I bite the bullet and let a professional do it?

    Thanks.

    I think they will be epoxied in place. You will have to apply heat to break the epoxy, and remove them without pulling up wood chips at the surface. Then, once removed, plug the holes, redrill and install studs.IMG_0312.jpg

    They are steel right?? Could you not use a bandsaw and cut the stem off and weld that too a 1 1/4 loop?? Seems much easier than replacing the stud.

    Just thinking out loud, that is how I would approach it.

    Good Luck

    Dang it. I figured as much. Thanks.

    You know, I do not know if they are machined or pressed steel. I think in the long run, considering the weight of the rifles, it may be better to have them pulled and new studs installed.

    I bought a Remington 700 in January from a guy that had almost identical looking sling studs in the stock, but they were screw in. I got lucky I guess and I unscrewed them from the stock and replaced them with regular studs. I think I would have them pulled and install the new ones.

    I have resigned myself to bringing both stocks with the hardware into Anchorage next trip and paying a pro to install them.
