I'm certainly with you on the point that £100 is a lot for a sling stud and to be honest I was in 2 minds as to whether to send it to Rhones or just do something similar to what you have. On balance, in view of the cash I have in the rifle, I feel that the £100 was well spent as it is a neat job. However, as you also observe, I have played with Blasers with a similar modification to yours and have not found any operational issue with them. I guess what you pay for is peace of mind that the stock is never going to flex nor will the hole for the stud ever enlarge through wear and tear because the stud is actually supported by a lump of metal. I suppose there might also be some benefit in terms of resale but that is pretty much an academic point.bucksden said:i had heard of the £100 bipod stud but wasnt aware that they bedded it in, thought it was just a metal insert.
what did they use to prevent the bedding compound from getting to the removeable section that houses the working bits - did they make a sort of dam?
point to note - my r93 with the cheap and cheerful sollution provided by its previous owner causes no flexing problems whatsoever.
