    Front sling stud is loose- how to tighten?

    How do I go about tightening my front sling stud on my 1895 SBL? It is loose and I cannot just rotate it in more. It seems I need to take apart the front cap at the end of the fore end and tighten something underneath that but I am not sure.

    If it is in the forearm tip...a re-weld might be needed.

    How do I remove the steel cap from the fore end to then check why the sling stud is loose?
