    Same question: rifle or pistol? You know? A picture is worth a thousand words. :)

    i got busy last night,took out a sharp centerpunch,set it up on the drill press and put a .200 hole right where she belongs.turned out excellent.works perfect for stablizing the sling.it was a little hard drilling, worked better with tapping fluid.cant wait to test it out.thanks for looking
