Here is what I use. Some people just use wood screws but Ive heard of the wood stocks cracking if there is any accidental sideways torque on the rail. I used a spade bit and flush the back for the t-nut. Being a gun builder I have never had a stock crack with these. It sandwiches the wood versus stressing the wood by the threads. Im sure others will give other opinions but this is what I use on several wood stocks, to include both my Crickets, and I abuse mine.

PS: I file 3/4 of the tabs off. Only takes a minute and you only need enough to hold the nut till the screw compresses it in place. My True Value had all the screws and nuts. Im sure HD or Lowes probably does.
