    I would like to come up with a sling for my new Gamo Swarm without tying anything around the barrel.:eek:
    The Tip of the butt isn't a problem and the side of the forearm looks like a good place, but the material looks like it might be too thin. :(
    I'm wondering about installing a backing plate, that would clear the action, on the inner side of the forearm, then through bolting a sling ferrel to it.:D
    Any ideas?:)
    I know, if I was 7' tall, I could use a single point.:p

    How about a bit of JB weld, use clay to make a dam if it gets to be too big an area. Over night it sets up and can be drilled. Used it for bedding for years, might want to ruff up the area a bit for good contact.

    I installed a swivel stud to the forearm of one of my wood stocked break barrel guns and it is pretty thin there on mine but it hasn't had a problem after many years.

    Thanks Guys,
    I think I like the JB Weld idea as it is a synthetic stock.:)
    I could build up a place to mount the swivel and never drill through the forearm.:D

    I think that JB Weld will do the job.:cool:
    I've patched and repaired a lot of aluminum outboard parts with it.:)

    Didn't have any JB Weld handy, so I decided to try Super Glue in a close tolerance hole. :eek:
    The base of the nut is knurled. It should stay in place.:rolleyes: Sling-1.jpg Sling-2.jpg DSCF4463.jpg
