Dude that is awesome! Nice sling as well. Instead of knotting the leather thong, I lashed mine with wax coated cord. It works better and looks awesome.

I’m sure you know this, but the studs will only work with a thonged sling. They will not work properly with sling swivels.

I appreciate it! Do you happen to have a pic of your sling? I am messing around with it a bit tonight. The rifle is definitely a lot slimmer and lighter than I thought it would be. Very well balanced.

‘fish hook swivels would be the original method as well and will work. Now that Mauser owns rigby it could be they went to EU sling eyes. (Smaller than uncle Mike’s, $40 at NECG)

Interesting. The stud hole on mine is far too large for normal sling swivels. It is definitely set up for the Rigby silent sling.

Actually the holes on mine are much larger than standard studs. Would this match the fish hook swivels you mention? I’m not familiar with them.

Though a classic Winchester version, this is what they look like. I am not a fan.


My rifle with a Trader Keith Sling and swivels - not sure the actual brand.

Google Winchester or Parker hale fish hook swivels. Expect to pay $80-$150 a pair. It’s 100% what that was intended to use. I use English swivel eyes on restorations for fish hook use.

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Mtn_Infantry,
That's a monster buck you have in your avatar! Very Nice! Anyway, my brother in law and myself are planning to do some fishing while in Port Aransas. I think he/we are planning on taking a boat charter out a couple of days. He's a serious fisherman and I am not. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Mark Griffin
