Finger Groove swivels



Log in to see fewer ads
Got a finger groove stock without proper swivels. Rear is missing, front is missing the sling loop.

Where might I find the proper swivels.

WTB ad on here or ebay. That's the only two places I have ever seen them. Be prepared to pay for them.

Good luck in your search!

I really like these >> https://www.amazon.com/Outdoor-Conne...n+sling+swivel They will attach to your existing front stud and come with a threaded stud for the rear. I have found them a Walmart and Dicks.

Going to be tough to find the correct swivels. A couple of years ago I bought a "Sporter" (finger groove) stock without swivels. Then I went to GB and found a Ruger 10/22 "Sporter" (finger groove) stock rifle with a busted stock but it had the swivels. I ended up buying the rifle for a little over $200. I transferred the swivels off the busted stock to the stock without swivels and then (after cleaning and inspection) I transferred the barreled action from the rifle with the busted stock to the now complete "Sporter" stock. YMMV.......good luck!

GH41,

This is the best tip other than the Ruger Real Deals. Numrich has the rear Swivel for a 10/44, but they list them "out of stock".

Several "parts sellers" have said they don't know what a 10/22 Finger Groove stock is. Not much help.

Thank you all for your help, the hunt is a lot of fun for me.

may have to do some moddin' if you can't find a set of originals

I bought these a couple of years ago to put into a stock project that didn't happen...maybe you could start with something like a pair of these, or new aftermarket bases, and modify them to fit your stock's inlets

this pair is from a swedish mauser

Thank you Cracked C.

Of all things, the rear Swivel is a stud type rather than inletted like the ones in your picture.

Your suggestion is a good one, again, thanks.

I have a finger groove stock that was purchased on eBay. The rear stud is a machine screw, not a wood screw. I thought that was weird.

The front swivel base is plastic.

Yes, it is all original.

For the front you could substitute an 1895 Dutch Mannlicher mount, the base might be smaller, perhaps you could remove the loop from the Mannlicher and put it on the Ruger base

Here is a picture



you can get them from Gun Part Corp

https://www.gunpartscorp.com/products/1044580

for the rear you can get a "Bisley" style swivel, it looks really close to the factory Ruger one



Ebay seller has them: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bisley-Wood...IAAOSwr5dbz3r0

I thought 'new info' was timeless

This originally was my post some time ago. Let me tell you all what I experienced. First, Ruger put goofy swivels on this particular stock. A large plastic two screw unit with a fixed loop on the base. Interestingly, the screw attaching the loop is the same as the one securing the carbine barrel band. I was able to find two loops, attached one to front base which was missing the loop. I bought a CZ swivel which is almost a duplicate of the rear Ruger swivel. These swivels are extremely difficult to find therefore I felt very fortunate to find them.

Another option for the front swivel is using the rear swivel from a 98 Mauser, they are nearly identical in size

I am planning on using one of these and building the metal loop from flat stock

Know anyone with a 3D printer? With the right material it could easily be done.
