Default 10/22 sling stud installation

I just purchased my first rifle and now I'm trying to get it ready for an appleseed.

It's a 10/22 carbine with a wood stock.

I just wanted some advice on where to drill to put the sling stud on the buttstock. 2 inches from the butt? 3 inches? I have no idea.

I ordered a stud that attaches to the barrel band so I don't need to drill the foreend, just the stock.

...also just as an observation that Jhook attached to the cotton sling sure makes a lot of noise. Is it okay to swap it for a swivel or do I want to keep it on there? It's faster to unhook than the swivel but man is it noisy.

You want to drill so that you miss the screw holding the buttplate, its about 1 1/2 - 2 inches in.

You need to be able to remove the rear of the sling from the rifle so if you replace the jhook with a Quick Disconnect Uncle Mike swivel or such like then you will be good.

According to Marlin Firearms, rear stud should be two inches from the heel, lower buttplate. I placed my front stud about 3/4" behind the front barrel band. This woks well for me.
The thing with firearms is that they are not like any other consumer product, simple ownership of one carries a lot of responsibility.

Some idiots are too busy knowing it all to ever learn anything

Doh... didn't know the barrel band was plastic. I was thinking it would be a secure metal piece. I guess that extra kit was a waste since I had to put a stud on the foreend, too. The wood screws are alot more solid than I thought they would be, though. My sister was angry I used one of her scented candles to wax the threads!
