Been looking for a decent sling for a Mossberg 500. 18" bbl. Primary use is HD and it has the factory full stock. Thinking about going with a collapsible AR style stock via a Mesa Tactical adapter sometime in the future. Didn't know if anyone had any good suggestions.

On rifles, the new hotness' is the "Ching Sling." I don't know if it's possible to use one on your 500, but it sure would be tacticool :)

Look at the Choate side folder first.. way more compact. I use the cheap Uncle Mikes 3 point sling for defensive shotties

I have an ATI top folder on my 500. I added the shell carrier to it as well. I really like it. Been thinking of possibly going with an AR style stock for it. I currently use a 1-point sling. It works pretty good. Only bad thing is that it hangs down too far for my liking. I'd like to get some sort of tactical sling for it, but one that brings the gun up a bit more.

Got to thinking and if it's just home defense then a single point might work, and be a lot simpler

CoiTAC CQB Single Point Bungee Sling Black Color

It's what I got for my gal's new AR15 but in coyote tan
This summer, Walmart was selling a Blackhawk one-point 'tactical' sling for around $20. One-points have become the slings of choice with the more active parts of the military and are worth considering. Some of the fancier ones can be used in many ways, not sure if this applies to the Wally version.

So, I originally had a two-point sling on my Mossberg 500 - that sling has a 15-shell bandoleer, which swayed back and forth swaying the gun with it. Just bought an ATI single point sling. I like it a lot.

One problem I have is how to attach the sling to the gun. I too have an ATI top folding stock with an ATI 5-round magazine attached to it. The sling has a split ring quick connect attachment and the folding stock has a stud with a hole in it - the same thing you'd expect in a normal sling mount. Right now, I have a spare sling mount attached to the stud and the sling attached to the sling mount. I'd like to get something more like a simple hard steel ring to attach to the stud, or maybe break down and buy one of these.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a solution here? If I drill out the stud to accept the split ring quick connect, there won't be enough stud left to hold the gun to the sling.

OK guys... I came up with the ultimate solution for this problem. I thought the answer was going to be a GG&G sling mount - one of these:



However, when the part arrived, I quickly found that it would not work in conjunction with the ATI top folding stock - the stock folding mechanism was in the way.

So, back to square one - what could I use to attach to the sling mount on the ATI top folding stock? I finally settled on one of these:



A grenade pin. It's hardened spring steel, I have no idea how strong the thing is, but OMG it is hard and strong. It took a screwdriver to get the pin apart sufficiently to slip it onto the sling mount on the folding stock. Once on, I just attached the single point sling to the grenade pin. It rotates, it's strong, it's even a dull army surplus green... not quite the "tactical black", but not bad.

The best thing is it was free at the local army surplus shop when I bought some ammo cans. I'll post some pics here in a bit...

LATER

Here are a couple pics of the end result:

Hey guys,
I found this thread after posting over at DefensiveCarry with questions about a single point sling for 500 Persuader. After some more searching, I found this solution to my problem and thought I would share here. I ordered the Sling Dynamics Viper sling and will post my findings once I spend some time with it.
