    Wood or synthetic stock? Sling studs can be added to either. Don't glue a pic rail to the stock. Use screws.

    Rails or sling swivels are easy enough to add.

    It is not difficult. Just add a simple stud and use a harris. No noticeable change to the stock...much less damage than gluing a rail. Just be sure to use the right drill bits and also make sure that the screw on the stud is short enough that it doesn't touch the barrel.

    There are two types of studs, screw in and bolt in. Regardless of type, you are probably going to want to remove the stock to work on it.

    Screw-ins will work with wood but I'm not sure they would stand up to a lot of stress so may be a bad idea.

    Bolt in's have a backer plate and you would have to remove the stock.

    There is a type that has a metal insert that fitted and glued into the stock and the stud is screwed into that.

    you will want the mount with the backer plate. The last thing you want is to drop your rifle because the sling swivel pulled out. Removing the stock is very simple and straight forward. If it is an ADL model you will have three screws on the underside. A BDL model has two screws...either way the barreled action will drop right out of the stock when you remove those screws. just don't over torque them when you are reinstalling. Also, you might need to hog out space for the backer plate to keep it out of the barrel.

    Don't mount a bipod to a screw in type stud that has wood-screw like threads. It will work loose eventually and pull all the wood threads out of the stock


    You want to use a sling swivel stud that has machine screw threads on it.

    The one on the right in this pic is what you want to use.



    Remove the stock, drill a pilot hole (1/16"-1/8") through it where you want the stud and then on the barrel channel side add a "Tee Nut". You can get these at most hardware stores.





    It can be done with a cordless drill, a couple of drill bits, some epoxy and enough masking tape to protect surrounding stock surfaces.

    A simple method is to drill a very small diameter hole through the stock at the desired stud location. Drill the recess in the barrel channel using a spade bit. Then drill the small hole out so the tee nut will fit flush at the middle. If there is any wood remaining at the bottom where the small diameter locating hole was drilled, just drill it out so the swivel threads will pass through and into the metal threads. Once the Tee Nut is fitted, just epoxy it in place using 5-Minute Epoxy.

    I have several rifles with that setup... no issues. Granted I don't beat them up much either, but it is certainly good enough for most people's use.
