The GG&G Mossberg 590 Looped Front Sling Attachment was developed to be used in combination with the GG&G Mossberg Looped Rear Sling Attachment in a conventional dual point sling setup. This Mossberg Front Sling Attachment will not fit the Mossberg 500. Use of HK Style snap hooks or mash hooks on slings for shotguns such as the Mossberg 590, have become very popular in military, law enforcement special operations circles and for shotguns used in home defense. Because of the lack of an alternative method, most shooters have just clipped their slings with snap hooks into a standard sling swivel. Although this kinda works, it is noisy and provides a loose and sloppy sling attachment. The GG&G Mossberg 590 Quick Clip Front Sling Attachment is an easy to install rugged alternative to clipping into the standard sling swivel or front sling plate and is ambidextrous. The 590 Front Sling Attachment is machined in our 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 operators safety. Many competing products are manufactured from insubstantial stamped sheet metal and have rather sharp edges that not only can cut you, but can cut your equipment, including our sling. As with all of our tactical products, this one has been designed for the rigors associated with professional use. A ball bearing detent on the Sling Attachment helps secure the unit behind the magazine tubes end cap. It is finished in a non-reflective manganese phosphate matte black per mil-spec.
