    Hi everyone. I should be receiving my accushot monopod tomorrow but I still need to fit a sling stud to the stock. Can anyone tell me the correct way of fitting the stud (the stock being synthetic) and suggest the best stud to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That synthetic material is very sturdy and will grab hold of the studs. You can pre-drill if you want but not necessary just use the studs that have threading screws. Good luck!

    Hey Micbro. I also have an accushot monopod attached to my wildcat. Any stud will work . Uncke Mikes are popular or just one from Dicks or Wal-Mart. I used the 1/2 inch stud because I didn’t have much room. It also came with 3/4 inch stud as well. First put a piece of masking tape on the stock and mark the center where its going. Match up a drill bit to the shaft of the stud, not the threads. Measure down the drill bit whatever size stud your gonna use and put some tape around it. This will let you see how deep to drill so you don’t go too deep. Now put one of the washers on that come with the studs and thread it in. Push and turn. Don’t over tighten it. Once you get it started use an allen key through the stud to turn it. The plastic washer will squeeze a little to close any gap. After I got mine where I needed it I removed it, put a couple drops of super glue into the hole and screwed it back in. Not necessary but its an option to strengthen it , but never remove it again. Good luck, its pretty easy to do.

    I mounted an Atlas rail to my Bobcat with Helicoils initially, they ended up wriggling loose.
    So i punched them out and used ‘T’ nuts which have been a lot sturdier. Zero movement in my rail.
    I think it depends on how much push/pulling is going to be on it.
