    Potential for a dumb question, but bear w/ the newbie. I just got my Mossberg 500 and it's only got one swivel stud (its on the stock). Now I'm not gonna keep a sling on it, but I was gonna get one. Of course the manual is a general thing for all the Mossberg models and shows two swivel studs. What the hell am I supposed to do with one swivel stud?

    Should be a tapped hole in the magazine cap / take-down screw.

    The sling swivel stud for it should be in a little brown envelope in the box it should have came in.

    That swivel stud may not be straight when you tighten the barrel. You may want to take it to a smith and have him/her drill and tap a hole under the spot between the cap and the tube. I have seen it like that before, and it looks good.
