Default Sling swivel installation on 10/22 (Synthetic)

Can anyone point me toward an installation guide for sling swivels on a 10/22 with a synthetic stock? Elsewise I'll just grab a Hogue overmold which has them pre-installed, but I'd prefer not to drop $70 if I don't have to.

I changed the barrel band on my 10/22 to this one so I could get a bipod and sling installed on mine.

I won the raffle at Appleseed for a Synthetic stocked 10/22. ( Thanks again to Turner's Outdoorsman)I haven't done it yet but I was planning on installing the standard kit that is on my other 2 wood stocked 10/22s. That is the machine nut in the foreend and the wood screw in the butt. I have 2 part epoxy if needed which I used on a Tapco T6 and it worked out..

I bought the GrovTec 1 1/4 inch swivel kit (made in usa, looks like better quality than Uncle Mikes and just like my KNS Precision)

I drilled the stock per the instructions on the Uncle Mike's swivels, threaded the hole using the swivel bolt, removed the bolt, applied J-B Weld and reinstalled the bolt and swivel. Worked like a champ!

If the synthetic stock is mostly hollow and there is room inside, I prefer to use the the swivel stud type that uses a machine screw thread with a locknut and washer on the inside of the stock.
This is less likely to pull out than the wood screw thread type.
If the synthetic stock is solid, the wood screw type is OK to use.

Better yet, take a small piece of oak or other hardwood and rough it out so it will fit inside the cavities in the forearm and butt of the stock. I used a bench sander to finish fit the piece so it was flush with the bottom of the stock and did not interfere with the barrel (which is free-floated). When the fit was perfect I epoxied the wood plugs in place and let them cure. Then get an Uncle Mikes wood stock kit and drill and tap into the synthetic stock with the hardwood backing and install the swivel studs as in a wood stock gun. Much stronger than a bolt and nut through a thin piece of plastic/resin. The load is distributed over a much larger area than a single bolt.

Does anyone know if Uncle Mikes has a 1.25" swivel set with 2 machine screws instead of one of each type? I have the standard Ruger hollow synthetic stock and I don't have the belt sander to try to use a wood insert.

Also, how do you get the butt plate off? I just realized there aren't any screws.

So I got some Uncle Mike's studs to put on my synthetic. This may seem like a dumb question, but about where should I drill my holes?
