    You could use some fine car body filler, & re drill slightly undersized to your sling screw.

    fill the hole with arreldite and then screw the stud in to the hole before the glue sets and allow to fully set.

    On my synthetic stocks I have sling studs that go straight through with a washer and nut on the inside.

    If you can find this style of stud and it would fit your rifle (i.e. not bedded) this would mean not having to drill another hole. You may want/need to fill the existing hole slightly in which case for extra solid anchorage a drop of araldite will stop it ever going anywhere again.

    Heres a post relating to the same problem from a couple of years back:

    Good Luck

    If using araldite I suggest you lightly vaseline the stud screw & then, whilst the araldite is setting, slowly screw the stud in & out. That way you don't permanently fix the stud into the stock and it can still be removed when you next want to refinish & oil your stock.

    Hmmm I take it Bi-Pod use?

    Have had to repair several due to this I use the machine screw and ferrule typ Q/D stud in such cases. Not much help as you going in the morning but for future reference.

    Just glad you caught it before it could do any real damage. As I said any suspect ones now I fit the machine screw and ferrule type. The P-H 1200C was stripped out when it came to me as was the Majestic featherweight. On another note the Monarch i acquired a few years ago now someone had over tightened the sling loop and stripped in in the wood. I have yet to repair that one as I need to find a suitable loop. I had one pull out on a BSA CF2 whilst using a bi-pod on the range hence the question.
