Thread: Sling swivels for smaller diameter studs.

  1. #1

    Sling swivels for smaller diameter studs.

    I need some quick release sling swivels to fit a smaller stud hole on a Mauser M03. Having done a quick search it looks like the fixed sling swivels on the blaser pose a similar problem once removed. Has anyone found a solution?

    Drill the stud holes out to fit normal sling swivels. They're only mild steel.

    On a 3000 rifle!? I have done it several times on cheaper used rifles but I'm not about to take a drill to this one.

    .. I should say there is a difference in the width of the stud as well. 0.23" compared to 0.3" for a regular sling swivel stud. This pin on the sling swivel would have to measure 0.1" compared to 0.13" for a regular size pin.

    I bet you can buy a set of Mauser/Blaser specific swivels, shouldn't run to more than a couple of hundred quid!

    Hi Tackleberry,

    I had the same problem. Similarly, I didn't fancy taking a drill to them! I ended up buying a Blaser sling, after shopping around it was not too expensive.

    Regards

    Ok I can accept that you may not wish to drill out the studs - Sooooo why not swap the studs? It ain't difficult to do a tidy, strong job that won't spoil your investment.

    The stud in the forend is sunk into the stock in a way that doesn't lend itself to a DIY replacement but I want to continue to use the original.
