Hey guys,

I ordered a new Bell and Carlson stock for my Tikka today.

I have a question about the swivel studs. I am going to swap out the factory blued studs for uncle mike's stainless studs. From what I understand they are just a machine screw that screws into a nut bedded in the stock.

Do I need to use lock tite on these studs to keep them secure or does it have some kind of self locking nut that it threads in to?

Re: Bell and Carlson Swivel stud question

I typically use a drop of blue Loctite. It doesn't seem like there is any sort of a lock nut in there, just regular threads.
