    Need a little help locating a part.

    So simple, it's stupid. I'm trying to find a front sling stud that fits a REM 700 VLS.

    Should be easy to find, but maybe my google-foo is lacking.

    Thanks for any pointers.

    Re: Need a little help locating a part.

    I have purchased several packs of sling studs from Walmart that have a couple wood screw sling studs and a 10-32 stud. I think they were Uncle Mikes. I probably still have a couple of the short wood screw studs laying around.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    That should handle it
    You might have to drill and countersink the inside of the hole.

    Then either the machine screw from the first set or the long "coarse threaded one from this set

    Thanks, sarge & jb, but I'd already ordered a couple before I saw your posts. Thanks.
