I have a NM stock that badly needs refinishing. I want to remove the fornt swivel. Looks like it is riveted. I can drill these out but what are the nice clean options for reinstalling? I am thinking about some button-head/socket head 6-32 screws or something. How does Mcmillan install wichita swivels on the M40 sniper stocks. I am brainstorming here-
Use 10-32 button head allen screws and T-nuts, Trim the T-nuts to fit the stock holes. The 10-32 threads will allow you to replace the GI swivel with an Uncle Mike's sling swivel stud and mount a bipod if desired.
