GUN SWIVEL GUIDE PAGE


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Be sure your firearm is unloaded before installing swivels.

Mounting forend swivel base studs;
If possible the base stud should be placed 13" to 17" (33cm-43cm) forward of the trigger.
Place the stock in a padded vice with trigger guard facing upwards.
Then drill a countersink hole with a 7/32" (5.5mm) drill bit to a depth of 1/8" (3mm).
Then drill in the same hole to a depth of 1/2" (13mm) with a 5/32" (4mm) drill bit.
Insert the 1/2" wood screw base through a spacer washer and screw it into the hole using a drift pin punch, etc.
Do not use the swivel to screw the base into the hole.

Safety Notice

Be certain your firearm is unloaded before installing sling swivels.
Firearm safety starts with you. Always follow these rules when using sling swivels.
With QD swivels always make sure that the rotating gate is fully engaged on the pin, so that there is no gap.

If not fully engaged it can become detached from the base.
You should get into the habit of checking this each time you use your firearm.
Climbing through hedge rows etc can amongst other things, catch on the sling or swivels.
If the swivel becomes detached from it's base then your firearm could fall, causing damage or even the firearm to discharge.

Swivel Care Tips

Sling swivels should be occasionally cleaned and oiled to prevent rust.
