Thread: Something simple I just learned - O-rings on qr swivels = quiet!!

    Something simple I just learned - O-rings on qr swivels = quiet!!

    I had an irritating little noise coming from my rifle which was probably inaudible to the deer but it kept getting on my wick!! I think it may be the quick release swivels moving about ever so slightly as the studs are smaller than the swivels!!

    So tonight I have fitted a couple of O-rings either side of the studs which should stop them moving about. I'm out early tmoro morning before work so will report back, unless it turns out to be something else, like my knees!!

    just remember they are there when you unhook it!
    must have sprayed 100 round the country forgetting that

    Also one round the QR stud stops any clacking off the stock

    No, too involved - just purchase the correctly dimensioned swivels.

    Clean and creas the bar. I had the same problem. But I may belt and braces and put the o rings on as well.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    K,

    Most people want to buy "cheap" sling gear from the USA and then find they don't match continental

    Also, only purpose I find for Vaseline. A "little" always helps
