Default sling on a Ruger 10/22 takedown model



Advertise Here

Has anyone mounted a sling on one of the new 10/22 takedown models yet?

I just bought one and quickly figured out that there is no easy way to mount the stock end sling swivel. To me a sling is as important on a rifle as a holster is for a hand gun. gotta have one...

Any ideas?

I've wondered the same darn thing - given the popularity of the gun, I've been amazed at the few aftermarket items targeted for it. Where are the better stocks, or the different cases? A good sling would be a great accessory.

I don't have a 10/22 take down but would it be possible to mount a swivel or similar attachment to the buttstock and use a single-point sling?

I need one also. I've been looking for a removeable band type sling that wraps around the buttstock.

There's a youtube video detailing how to drill and epoxy a swivel mount into the buttstock, but the closer I look, the less I like this - the takedown's stock is hollow and hard to access the inner space. IMO its only a matter of time before the swivel screw works loose.

I own a 10/22 TD. If I were to use a sling I would consider a single point type with strap adapter for rifle. Here's and outfit with a good selection:

Nylon webbing, and velcro. 1 loop goes around the butt stock about 1.5 to 2 inches up from the base and is joined by velcro (the black part in the picture). The grey is the webbing. You will notice the grey loop going around the bottom to the other side this is so that the loop going around the stock does not slide up the stock. The sqiggly line heading toward the muzzle is the sling portion. find a way to attach the sling to the band up front and there you go. This assumes you can sew.

I came up with an easy and inexpensive way to do a sling for my takedown. You'll find it on the Ruger forum site. You may need to join the forum to see the photos:

Airsoft makes some pre made soft connection slings for their rifles and shotguns that use a velcro connection. No need to make anything.

I use a single point sling on mine with the swivel stud on the top side of the hand grip. I put a keychain ring through the stud and just clip my strap to that. Balances very nicely from that point and it doesn't get in my way with my hand wrapped around the handgrip. I can walk with my hand on the hand grip and bring it up to firing position very quickly.

This is what I did. I took some sling studs off an older stock that I wasn't using, and installed them on takedown stock. This method is durable, I used for two appleseed's and there's no sign of wear.

I started off by drilling a hole with a bit smaller than the sling stud. I then started moving up drill bit sizes until the sling stud started to thread. Check with the sling stud after each size. You can find out placement of the new hole by lining up another stock and marking where to drill.

Next I took a countersink and lightly applied it to the drilled hole until the sling stud was flush. You can also use a drill bit that is the size of the top of the sling stud, but go slow and check constantly because you can drill to deep.

Lastly take an epoxy of your choice(I used gorilla glue epoxy) and coat the sling stud threads and the hole. Thread in the sling stud and follow the directions on the epoxy for setting time.

Do the same for the other sling stud.

I just bought a 10/22 a couple days ago and I haven't had time to look at the stock closely, but the manual shows that you have to drill the stock to put the screws in for a two-point rifle sling. I bought the screw & swivel kit at Cabela's and plan to make a paracord sling for it.

Gamo and a few other companies make velcro loop around slings for use on some of the airsoft rifles, this might not be a bad way to go if the rifle is not fitted with attachment points as they seem pretty solid (my kids have a couple on bb guns). This would save having to drill and you can easily take the sling off when you take the gun down. I have been told by a few people like packing the rifles into old fishing rod carry cans or holders for pool cues too (the cue cases make a nice scabbard in some cases).

It's the same plastic stock as the standard model and there's np drilling and screwing in a stud. What's making this one so difficult for you? You drill a hole and you screw in the stud. Bingo! You're all done.

Sorry. You just have me wondering what the problem is?

The problem is whether or not the shell material of the hollow stock is thick enough to support the sling swivel screws over time and hard use.

It's never given anyone any probs before. What sort of hard use were you planning to do? It's a sling on a .22 rifle. You aren't going to hang 500lbs from it.

Drill the hole, screw in the stud. Waste your time worrying about more important things.
