Help installing a sling

I'm installing a sling on a Winchester model 94 30/30. What is the proper distance for the rear stud to be placed from the butt of the rifle? Some sites say 2" some say 3".

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

Re: Installing a sling

Be careful get somebody to help you line it up. Its really easy to screw up putting the rear hole in. Thats why most gunsmith use a jig to line things up

Re: Installing a sling

You do need a jig to line it up and a counterbore to drill the hole. I have an old Uncle Mikes I have used often. Without it, you may split the wood.
