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

    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.

    Dang it. I figured as much. Thanks.

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

    Good Luck
    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.

    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.
