    Love the 870.... but

    I love my 870. It functions great with what i put in it. It has a 3 round extention, 20 inch barrel, syntetic stock , and it is all black.
    I wont be putting any flashlights or other ugly taticool items on it.

    I wanted to put a sling on it but alas i cannot go for remington oem swivels.

    I grabbed this 870 security model at big 5 for 329 with a 30 mail in rebate. When i purched it i did not notice that the mage extention holder did not have a sling swivel in it. No one carries these as they are remington only.

    So i just fuigure it got lost somewhere and finally today i got around to calling them. Was on hold for about 25 mins i guess they are rather busy. I did finally get a represenitive on the phone and i was told that I would have to buy the whole assembly for 49.95.

    Now i decided to go over it with the gentlmen one more time maby a misunderstanding or such. Well i guess its a bad day for the phone guy at remington or he just dont like people rexplaining themselfs.

    I might be overreacting a bit but i beleive if they are going to sell a gun at any place with a mag extention assembly they should include the swivel or at least have the part avalible seperatly.

    I had called another manufacture before because a gun i had bought at a pawn shop had been missing a extracter and had a messed up hammer, they sent them out at no charge. That might of spoiled me.

    Ahh well im still going to enjoy my 870 but I will think long and hard before I purchase this peticular brand again

    You should be able to find a magazine cap with a swivel on it.

    If that has a hole in it you should be able to buy a swivel that fits it

    Well, I'm thinking that many aftermarket mag/barrel clamps for any 12ga shotgun should work on it. Most I've seen come with the swivel on the side though. Like this one: MidwayUSA - TacStar Barrel to Magazine Clamp Remington 870, Winchester 1200, 1300 Blue
    Here's another more modular clamp/swivel (scroll to center of page)-

    What sling are you considering for your 870?

    The TacStar is the one I have on my 870. Works great, no worries.

    As ridiculous as it sounds I’m told Remington only includes the swivel stud with the magazine bracket on their police model. As you discovered the stud is not available for purchase separately. I ran into this issue when I purchased my 870 Express with magazine extension. I looked high and low for an inexpensive swivel stud that I could use with the magazine/barrel bracket.

    I finally located a set which included a magazine/barrel bracket AND swivel stud, plus 2 QD swivels at Uncle Mike’s. I simply removed the stud from their bracket and inserted it into the Remington bracket. I believe the set was about $19 when I purchased it a few years ago. Don’t know if they are still available, but you can check around. Good luck. :)

    Really? You're hacked off at Remington because they didn't give you something you didn't pay for?

    To answer the question, there are plenty of aftermarket sources for sling studs. I suggest you use them instead. But don't blame Remington, they didn't slight you, you slighted you.
