    Looks nice! should be a real nice improvement for out in the field. 

    About how thick is the stock where you installed the sling stud?

    haha your welcome brother lol….I would say a good inch at the front and back is full with of the stock as its solid drilled a smaller hole and worked slow with the uncle mikes screw stud (1461-2) had a smaller front screw and longer back so this worked out well for me

    Jonathan I guess the FX has some sort of composite stock. How dense is that material and does it grab the sling swivel studs well. I have a FX Verminator coming sometime soon I hope and decided to let AOA install sling studs. This not knowing the stock material or its construction. Bill

    it is like rionite (sp) the stuff seams very strong as strong as the stock of any Mc Millian tactical I have ever worked on! 
    I was very hesitant to do it but now that I have I would not think twice about doing it again if I had to.

    I’m sending my brand new fx  Independence .25cal back today for  repairs . Pump it up to 220  Shot it one time and pumped it 65 times and it still wasn’t full  On the gauge dam it hunting seasons almost over here hope they get this thing fixed fast .I’m sending it back I’m going to have them add the sling studs they said they weren’t sure if it would work but  i’m definitely going to have them add it now .kinda sucks on long hunts for  squirrel or rabbit and not have a sling

    its about 5 inches back and there is a ton of meat there to hold it, I would do it myself very easy and a lot cheaper …if you decide to I will walk you through it step by step with pictures
