I bought the Remington replacement magazine cap that has the swivel stud built into the cap. Does anyone have any advise on how to install the swivel stud on the stock. I am not sure if it would matter, but I have a synthetic stock.

No problem at all. Measure about 1.5” up from the end of the stock and drill it just like a wood stock. There is a reinforcing rib along the inside of the stock that will hold the sling stud.

Pull the recoil pad off and take a look inside the stock before drilling a pilot hole.

Use vaseline on the screwdriver shaft before pushing it through the recoil pad. This will help prevent the screwdriver shaft from tearing the pad.

I think your step down bit leaves a flat for the swivel head to sit on.

After drilling a pilot hole you could countersink the hole so the swivel head sits more flush with the stock.

Take your drill and drill a hole that matches up with the stud that you can get at wal mart. Find where you want to drill it (I reccomend getting a measurement off of an 870 that has the stud), drill the hole, and screw in

Be sure to get a drill bit that is smaller than the threads on the stud screw, otherwise you will have to glue the thing in there
