M77 MkII - loose sling swivel
Getting my rifles ready for gun deer season. Noticed that my front sling swivel stud on a M77 MkII (walnut stock) is loose. If I simply tighten down it is tight at an angle, so looks like I will need to take the stock off and re-set it.
Although I've had the stock off before, I don't recall specifically, but I'm assuming its a machine screw with a washer and a nut on the back side - am I correct about that?
Any tips for keeping this from loosening up again? Was wondering if anyone has used lock-tite for this specific purpose?
When I put the stock back on, should I anticipate that the point of impact might change? I won't have time to go back to the range this week. I can take a different rifle if I need to.
