tell you what I do joe. looks pretty much factory. take the rear sling swivel from an sks stoc or ak stock and plug weld the countersink holes,regrind the plug welds flush,drill new rivet sized holes(.170) rivet just forward of the rear trunnion. good luck..................

Thats an idea, but i already cut the slot on the reciever for the original type, i guess i will fabricate a small piece of sheet metal to hold an ak swivel and install it the original way, i was hoping i wouldnt have to do that but it looks like i will. R1150R eh, i just sold my R1150GS, i currently have a 91' R100GS and an old /2 gotta love beamers McM

Well since i couldnt find a rear sling swivel i decided i'd make one. I took an old sling swivel off an old Maadi stock, then i took an old hacksaw blade, grinded off the teeth and formed it around the swivel, I had already cut the notch in the receiver for the original (thinking i'd find one) so i grinded the saw blade to fit the notch. I slipped the blade into the notch then just bent the two ends opposite from eachother. Just giving you all an idea of how to, it looks great and it looks original and is functional as well. McM
