    I have the synthetic stock 597 and it has no studs for a sling. I would like to add one as well as a bipod. I am not aware of how the bipod is attached to the gun. Do I need to drill a hole for the bipod and one at the butt for the other end of the sling (assuming the bipod had a clip for a sling on it)? Does it attach some other way to the stock?

    I want this type of setup with maybe a different brand stock:

    And here is a picture of my gun as it sits (mine is the bottom gun):
