I just added some new swivels to my mini 14. You have to remove the old swivels and install new quick release swivels, Uncle Mike makes nice ones.
You have to drill through the holes in the factory studs to accomodate the new quick release pins. Make sure the width of the sling you are using is the same width of the quick release swivels that you are installing, i.e 1" , 1 1/4
I used a hacksaw to cut through the factory swivels, once you cut through the top, the two pieces just fall out
