Yes, there is a ebony oval inlet into the stock. The rear screw threads into the barrel band. The swivel threads into a piece of metal inlet into the barrel channel and is independent of the barrel. I believe that the idea was that you could adjust the amount of tension on the forend independent of sling stud orientation. I believe O'Connor mentioned this in one of his books.

I always coveted that rifle also. Glad to know it is in the hands of someone who appreciates it.

What a great ending to the search - I'm glad you got to wind up with it. I'm not surprised though. For those that haven't seen John in action at a gun show, he can have a conversation while walking an aisle and spot a classic under a table that isn't really for sale and bring it home. Very cool rifle!

Dan asked me to post some pictures of his Linden, and how he used a slightly different variation to accommodate both sling swivel and screw for a barrel band. In this case, the insert is ivory.

Interesting. An the barrel band has the same style of matting on the top.

What is the brand name of the swivel bases you picture? I have seen them in original boxes, but can't remember the name.
