Forend Sling Swivel w/Knoxx Gen3?

Post by Tomac » Sun Oct 01, 2017 1:25 pm

I'm just now getting back into shotguns after a hiatus of many years.
I have a new 870 Police Magnum on the way and will be adding a GG&G side saddle & Knoxx Gen3 stock & forend (I've used an earlier Knoxx stock in the past and liked it a lot).
Now, the Knoxx buttstock already has provisions for using a QD sling swivel, what I need to find out are my options for mounting a QD sling swivel at 9 o'clock that's compatible w/the Knoxx forend.
Any suggestions? Thx in advance!...

No other option. It's simple to me.

Tomac, do you want to install a QD sling swivel on the forend? Or clamp with QD sling swivel is ok too? I like CDM Gear clamps.

Thx for the input, I ended up ordering the Magpul combo bbl clamp, it should be perfect for my needs.

I don't really see why you'd want to attach a sling to your fore-end. It's a moving piece that's core to the gun's function, so that's just asking for tangles & hang-ups. Force on the fore-end from a sling would also tend to twist it, stressing the action bars. It can certainly be done, but now that I think on it, I don't think I've ever seen it before. I think you'll be much better off with a sling attachment point on a stationary part of the gun.

That's why I went w/the Magpul bbl clamp.
