    Hi.

    If this is already posted, I apologize. I have been looking thru the threads, and I haven't seen anything. Has anyone moved the nut/swivel on their 995TS so its on the left side of the gun? If you have, can you explain how you get the nut side out and what tools you used to do it? Thanks in advance. First post I've made here.

    Yes, some that don't understand how a PCC carbine is operated have done it.

    The problem is, now your bolt handle digs into you when you sling the gun.

    Of course, if all you want is a better shooting sling, it will work for that.

    What you do is partially unscrew the swivel, then push it in to drive the nut out the other side, then finish unscrewing it. Swap the nut to the other side, and screw the swivel in from the other, other side...viola!

    I understand how they operate, I've done it, and my bolt handle does not dig in to me because I understand the concept behind using a single point sling.

    I guess some people understand more than others. :D

    Darned straight.;)

    I didn't want to go down the "wanna-be operator" pathway.:p

    And yes....my 4595 is still on a single point sling.:eek:

    Mounting sling on right side.

    Have you tried this on the carbine tactical stocks? I want to mount the sling on the LEFT side of a 995TS just to improve the use of the sling; not for carrying the gun with the sling. Those little round nuts are pressed in pretty tight. I was planning to press/tap them out using a longer bolt as a substitute instead of the swivel. But concerned that it might split or break the plastic stock. Your opinion? Thanks. (11/26/16: I just amended my post. I meant mount the sling on the LEFT side not right side.)

    It won't break or split anything. Just do it. I screwed the swivel in to the nut from the outside, pulled the nut out, stuck it in the left side, then snugged it all down with the swivel.

    Yep, it works, no sweat.:)
     
  9. It took some work for me, using the swivel bolt and some punches. If not careful you could eff it up, but just take your time and you should be okay. Of note, when you move the nut thingies to the other side of the stock, you lose a lot of stability because the hole is wider on the side you pulled it out of originally. I have a feeling I am going to ditch the whole HP system and come up with another option entirely.

    Why did you use punches? It was literally as simple as unscrewing the swivel bolt enough to allow the nut to be pressed damn near out with simple hand pressure. I used my palm and squeezed. Then I finished unscrewing the swivel bolt, screwed it back in to the nut and pulled it the rest of the way out and with the swivel bolt still partially screwed in used hand pressure again to pop it in to the opposite side. I didn't lose any stability or compression on the stock.

    Yeah...I'm not seeing any loss of stability at all, on the TS or the old monkey guns. Not sure....but I THINK the holes were all the same size, or close enough that I didn't think twice about it.

    Pulling up a zombie to ask my own question about a sling swivel. :mummy:

    I grabbed anew sling for my 20 gauge- h&r pardner pump.
    Rear swivel fits just fine, front one is too small for the sling thingie. Could I take it off and attempt to drill the hole bigger with my drill press? Or is that stupid and should I just get a different swivel and/or a different sling?

    Now is it an older shotgun with a wooden stock and a screw in sling stud?

    No, its a brand new pardner pump, synthetic stock. Front swivel is on the end of the mag tube.

    I have modded the old Rossi/NEF sling studs by drilling them out with a drill press. These were the old style studs that held the forearm on.

    That’s odd. I’d drill it...but it should fit.

    20180608_210053_Burst01.jpg seems like the peg would fit in the hole, but it does not. Rear one fits fine.
