Has anyone found a carry strap for the wood stocked factory 10/22 setup that doesn't require any drilling to install?

Only on the sporter version

Drats, looks like I'll have to change the stock! :pinch: After the stock swap, I'll have officially spent more on the upgrades than the 10/22 itself. :eek:

Don't have to change the stock.
Just get a couple screw-in sling studs.
Or, if you don't want studs, get flush mount cups that you drill a hole and epoxy into the stock.

Flush mount cups eh? Please tell me more! Pics and links would be much appreciated.

There are slings that have no swivels or metal. They basically form a loop on each end and go over the barrell and the buttstock. Very simple, and they work well. I used one for my shotgun because I didn't want to drill, and I also didn't want to be bothered with a sling in the duck blind. The only drawback may be that if you use it a lot, it may wear the blueing. (But you'd have to be lugging that rifle around everywhere)

Here's an example from Midway...

Hope this helps. I like mine, but it's over 25 years old and leather.

This might work too as I'm only planning to use it when shooting it off-hand at the range. The strap makes a great stabilizer. :)

Those non-attached slings are mostly for carry.
If you want to actually tension against it, you want it mounted into the stock like a REAL sling.
Just get some screw-in studs and call it done.
All you have to do is drill a little pilot hole and screw them in.

I'll look at some old wooden stock rifles for ideas as to where I'd like to mount those babies. :)

Will those screw ins work with the plastic stock on the synthetic 10/22?
