Can anyone recomend a swivel less sling fox x2 ???
« on: March 14, 2013, 04:06:17 PM »
Can anyone recomend a sling that i don't need qd studs ect, my stock on my x2 is synthetic and wouldn't like to drill holes in it ???? Mart1n said to get a hw100 qd for the front and use a nylock nut for it (on the front forend) i have seen a gamo/bsa sling on ebay that looks like what im after as it just ties onto the barrel. I could put a qd on the butt end and use epoxy to secure?????
any ideas guys ?????

I would be a bit hesitant to rely on a bond rather than a mechanical fix.
You'll only need a little water ingress or a less than perfect mate for it to weaken over time and the first you'll know of it is when your rifle hits the floor.
If done neatly I personally see nothing negative in fitting studs properly. Of course, your personal desire is something completely.

Yep, im just a bit cautious with it being a synthetic stock, i have seen a aircylinder band for a FX verminator with QD stud but in thinking to drill and tap the one for the but with a drop of epoxy on the threads if you know what i mean ??/ i will have to take the butt pad off to see if it's  hollow, it doesn't sound it but in not sure ?????
cheers  mate.

Iv got studs fitted on my sons bsa ultra tac that's synthetic stock there just the same as the wood ones all you need to do is drill a nice tight hole and screw the stud into it. If in doubt screw then in to make the thread. Take it back out and drop a touch of outdoor epoxy in then screw the studs back in  ;)

I see you worded that carefully mate lol ;) that was what i thought to but i only have about 10-12mm max at the forend. Mart said about getting a hw100 thredded qd and resess a nylock nut ?????
i would do that for the butt end but im just not sure of drilling a oversized hole for the forend, if you get my drift ????? will look for a FX Verminator cylinder adaptor they are supposedly the same diamiter ?????
cheers mate.

There's only 10mm or so at the forend of the ultra the stud has been cut down but its nice and secure. If you do put a nut in there be very careful not to pull if strait through with there bein less material to hold it  ;D

There is a fitment available (from FX, IIRC) which clamps around the cylinder to provide a swivel stud (for a sling or a bipod) without the need to drill the stock.

The rear of the sling could be secured by making a 'sandwich' plate with a loop on the bottom which is secured between the stock and the butt pad.

If at any time you wanted to remove the sling set-up, you then could do so without any visible evidence of it ever being there.

get a barrel attachment or like gareth said a cylinder attachment to attach the front ,then take off the butt pad and attach the rear by screwing the butt pad back on sandwich the strap ;) :)

That's why i love this forum, thanks for your help, I never thought about the sandwich method, that's great i will see if i can get a fx cylinder band it would be great to be able to carry it with a sling as eaven though it is quite light it gets heavier as you walk on.
cheers again and good karma coming your way.
