    Vickers Sling on Shotgun

    I'm about to buy a sling for a SBS Remington 870. I'm leaning towards a Vicker's Tactical sling but don't know how to attach the sling to the stock. I'm not looking for a receiver plate but someway to put the sling on the back of the stock. Any ideas?

    I have this one on my 870.

    Few bucks cheaper. Doesn't shift at all. Looks like it sits a little further down than the BFG version which may be good if you have the sling mount point on the under side of your stock like mine. Adapter sits past it and stops any rearward play.

    Edit. On further inspection, I notice that BFG make a weapon specific 870 model, so may be better just to get that one if you're ordering the sling from there too.

    I just use the standard end cap swivel and fix the stock end to the "pistol grip" section of the standard stock. You can use some 550 cord or the AK stock adapter that BFG sells.

    I had the GG&G receiver end plate and the end cap swivel plate I took them off because the rear one got in the way of grip, especially off side and run your support hand thumb into the end cap end plate once, and you'll see.

    My opinion anyhow.

    The DD end plate

    This is an option as posted above

    or they one I spoke of--but I had some stock and went to the shoe shop-two looped ends, no hardware

    Hey, Buck, I have a sheriff over here with the padded VCAS and an 870. I'd be anxious to see what you have come up with. He's a southpaw and I'm working on something that may improve the sling positioning.

    Once I get a proper buttstock for my Police Magnum (mine currently wears a Remington top-folder) I'm going to have the stock milled out and a sling bar added ala the M1 Carbine (except the bar will be fixed). For it to work with a lefty configuration you can reverse the side of the taper cut (or add an equal cut to both and have the bar in the middle).

    Maybe I should file a patent......

    John...However you mount it to the rear of the stock you want to make sure it is at the top of the stock so the gun doesn't flip upside down.

    I'd really look at mounting the rear of the sling at the receiver using a H-Hook adaptor, or if you can find one, a QD receiver adaptor. The Vickers sling really performs well with the receiver mount at the rear and the forward mount off your Mag tube slot....given you have a Vang Mag tube extension.

    Call Grant at G&R Tactical to discuss the various configurations you can get as far as the Vickers sling mounts. Theyare varied.

    Remington 11-87 Police

    I have the Blue Force Gear Victory Series 2 point on my M4 and love it. However, if I mount it on my 11-87, the gun kind of hangs upside down. I have a bottom sling loop on the magazine extension and the factory bottom sling stud on the stock.

    Would I be better off attaching the sling to the receiver with something like the Daniel Defense Burnsed Loop? Or, should I consider a 1 point sling attached at the receiever? Would you recommend a different sling for my shotgun, other than the Victory Series?

    There is only 1 way to have the gun lay across your body without being upside down. The connections have to be on the inside of the gun, or atleast above the center axis point so the gun "Hangs" from top to bottom and not upside down.

    A. Your front portion needs to be in a "VANG Type" mag tube side sling loop that you can place on the inside or outside (right or left on the gun) You want it on the left if you're a "Rightie".

    B. The rear needs to be on the inside via a Burnsed loop, or O Ring for an H
    K type hook at the receiver on the inside. OR....there are nylon adaptors that go ont the end of the Butt that positions the sling loop at the top inside portion of the gun. Both work.

    Stud, or swivels on the bottom will not work!
