QD stud issues

    Hi guys
    I normally have a Harris bipod attached to the rifle with no issues but when I remove it and just have the sling clipped on there is a tendency for the stud to unwind ( loosen).
    My fear is it will eventually rip out the threads in the stock and then require a new one to be drilled.
    Any good solutions out there.
    Thanks

    Maybe a bit of locktie or epoxy.

    Glue it, I think nearly everyone does that.

    Green / strong Loctite is what we use on our new stocks.
