10/22 All Weather Sling Swivels?

I have a new 10/22 All Weather (i.e. stainless, synthetic stock). Does anyone know how to fit sling swivels? I know Uncle Mikes makes a front swivel that clamps into the barrel band but how can I add a swivel to the butt stock?

Putting one on a wood stock is easy but has anyone done it to the Ruger synthetic stock? The butt plate doesn't seem to be removable so there is no way to put a reinforcing washer inside the hollow butt. I'd never trust just using a wood screw.

This is what I did. I purchased the Uncle Mike's kit, ditched the barrel band, drilled a hole in the front where the band was and screwed in the short screw swivel and washer. I drilled another hole roughly 3 inches from the butt end of the stock and screwed the long screw swivel and washer in to it. This was all done on a synthetic stock. Screws aren't going anywhere. Just make sure the holes you drill are smaller then the screws so they take a good bight into the plastic. The instructions that come with the kit have drill size info. I just used any old bit that was smaller then the screw.

Thanks for the reply. I figured I could fit the forearm swivel either in the barrel band or remove the band and just mount it as on a wood stock.

It was the butt swivel I was concerned about but if you've had no problems with it staying put, I'll just do the same thing.

22/45,
I've done several different type synthetic stocks. The standard current Ruger is hollow as I recall. Definately use the Uncle Mike's Swivel Set which you described . The front swivel is cleaner with their Barrel band piece.

Follow the instructions for the buttstock stud but apply some quick two part epoxy (JBWeld 5 min works) to the stud. This process has always worked for me.

Here is some pics of how mine was mounted.
