GG&G has a history of making accessories for tactical weapons including shotguns and military rifles. Some of GG&G's most popular itmes have a simple appearance but are engineered to create a tactical advantage in an adverse situation. The GG&G Mossberg 590 Front Sling Attachment is an example of just such an accessory.
GG&G developed and designed the front mount for the Mossberg 590 sling for several important reasons. First of all, current tactical applications for utilizing a sling on shoulder mounted combat weapons requires mounting said sling to the side of the combat shotgun. This aids in satisfying one of the critical factors in this equation, the ability to make a smooth, rapid and safe transition to the service sidearm. It is fully ambidextrous.
In addition, experience has demonstrated that the use of sling clamps that go around both the barrel and magaazine extension tube of a fighting shotgun will spread the barrel and tube by varying amounts, depending upon how much tension is applied to the clamps retaining screw. As this is difficult to gauge, the gun's zero will change every time the clamp is removed for maintenance and then reinstalled. The GG&G Shotgun Front Sling Attachment for the Mossberg 590 prevents this from happening. Many competing products are manufactured from insubstantial stamped sheet metal ahd have rather sharp edges that not only can cut the sling, but can cut the operator as well.
The Mossberg 590 sling swivel is machined in the GG&G facility from AS-35 Geneva steel. Of exceptionally high quality, this famous Swiss steel features molecular structure with elongated grains for added toughness. The corners have been rounded and dehorned for the operator's safety. A ball bearing detent on the Sling Attachment helps secure the unit behind the magazine tubes end cap. Both versions are manganese phosphated matte black per mil-spec.
