It looks like it will work. Not sure about the swivel size though.
Did you buy the Blackhawk sling swivels then?I have that sling. Heavy when it's loaded up but it's still a really great sling. I like to wrap it around my right arm (grip/trigger arm). Doing this picks up some of the slack and helps secure the weapon to me, say someone tries to grab it from me. I say buy it, even if you end up not liking it on your gun you could use it as a make shift bandoleer.
Take another look at the 590's magazine.Consider using a GG&G sling attachment. It fits between the magazine extension and the magazine tube. I have one on my 870 and my mossberg 930 spx. They work very well and you don't have the sling running all the way to the muzzle. GG&G
Absolutely. Plenty long enough. In the above pic, you can see how much additional length in available.1. The sling goes from 29" to 39". That's enough, right? I'll measure the distance before I purchase, but the Mossberg 590 shown above appears to have a magazine extension and there is plenty of slack. Should work for an 870 with 2-shot extension.
If you are planning on attaching it to a Remington 870, you need to pick up the sling swivels; the sling will not attach directly to the gun using the factory mounts. Here is a stock image of the hooks at the end of the sling:2. The reviews over at MidwayUSA (and even comments in the Zombie thread) indicate that this sling won't attach to the 870 directly. I assume the Blackhawk sling swivels (available in 1" and 1¼" for $10) will allow the sling to mount to the 870, correct? Anyone have any insight/experience/photos using these swivels? Any opinions on which size (1" or 1¼") works better?
I had a Remmy sling that had the swivels instead of the hooks, so it really depends on the sling. If your sling has the swivels, no need to buy another set. However, if you are thinking about this Blackhawk sling, you'll need the swivels.Great info. Thanks for updating the thread, I have the same model shotgun and was contemplating what sling/how to attach it.
All I really need then are 2 sling swivels and my sling of choice. Thanks again.
I got them on sale at LA Police Gear, but the regular price is $15.74 for the sling and $8.24 for the swivels.If you're ordering online, Optics Planet has them for $17.50. Blackhawk swivels are $9.09. Find something else to buy, and you can get free shipping if your total is more than $29.95.
