    I bought a beautiful Anschutz Model 1533 222 Rem from a good friend. It has the full Mannlicher stock with "old timey" swivels. I'd like to get some quick-detach swivels like Uncle Mike's, but all I can find are 1" or longer. The front swivel is a machine screw that is only 3/8" or so long as it only has to go through a very thin piece of the Mannlicher stock to attach. The back swivel, of course, is a wood screw type and anything will work there. Uncle Mike's website is about as sorry, non-user friendly site as I've seen. I would send them this question if I could. Thanks for the help. Rob

    This is probably what you are looking for. Cut the front machine screw to length with a Dremel. I have a set on mine and they look really nice. Pat

    People most likely to help you would be the folks at New England Custom Guns. European swivels and such are offered by them and can advise on whatever swivel you want to use. Good Luck.

    Is there still room for the escutchon in the forend,

    If there is determine the length the swivel screw needs to be run the escutchon down past this point, cut off with whatever tool you have handi, trim the cut with a file, then when you unscrew the escutchon the threads get pressed straight and it is ready to install.
