I have numerous Uncle Mike's sling swivel mounts--two of which came with my new 375 Wby DGR (unshot; new to me; and about 6 years old). None of them fit through the hole in the mount on the barrel of the 375 from either direction--the hole is too small (the hole in the swivel stud on the stock works fine). I tried even gently to hammer the rod through the hole. No luck.
What should I do?
Drill the hole on the front swivel stud attached to the barrel?
Give it to a gunsmith?
Use a Laser Hyperbolic Charged Partical Beam Technology Psuedo Expander Module (only commonly known to 27th Century Neptunians)?
There must be an answer. I just don't know what it is.
Any helpful comments are appreciated. Thanks.
