Remington 870 Front And Rear
Our 870 Sling Attachments Will Also Fit
The Remington 1100 & 1187 Shotguns
The Remington 870 Front Sling Attachment:
GG&G designed the front sling attachment for the 870 shotgun to provide the shooter with a tactical advantage in adverse conditions. Current tactical applications for utilizing a sling on shoulder mounted combat shotguns requires mounting said sling to the side of the 870 shotgun. This aids in satisfying one of the critical factors in this equation, the ability to make a smooth, rapid and safe transition to your sidearm. Its important to note that the 870 Front Sling Attachment will fit the Remington 1100 and 1187 shotguns, and is ambidextrous in all three applications.
Additionally experience has demonstrated that the use of sling clamps that go around both the barrel and magazine 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.
Many competing products are manufactured from insubstantial stamped sheet metal and have rather sharp edges that not only can cut the sling, but can cut the operator as well. Our Remington 870 sling mounts are 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 operator's safety, bead blasted and then manganese phosphated matte black per mil-spec. A ball bearing detent on the Sling Attachment helps secure the unit behind the magazine tubes end cap.
The Remington 870 Rear Sling Attachment:
Because the Remington Rear Sling Plate is mounted just behind the receiver, it can be used in a dual point sling set up or as a single point sling attachment. Although originally designed for the Remington 870, it will also fit the Remington 1100 and 1187 shotguns.
Single point tactical slings attached to shoulder-mounted combat weapons including shotguns such as the Remington 870 are very popular in both military and law enforcement special operations circles. These shotgun sling mount systems permit the operator to mount the weapon on either the primary or offside shoulder. As a result, during dynamic entries it becomes easier to "cut the pie" at doorways and move around corners, whether they are on the right side or left side, without telegraphing the operator's position. In addition, slings attached to a single point mount work especially well when operators are deployed wearing body armor or are involved in breeching operations. The preferred mounting point for slings of this type is directly behind the receiver and in front of the buttstock.
GG&G was one of the first to introduce a Single Point Rear Sling Attachment for the Remington Model 870 combat shotguns. Precision machined from 7075 aircraft grade billet aluminum alloy and Type III hard anodized matte black, this shotgun sling attachment has been designed for the rigors associated with professional use. This GG&G Single Point Rear Sling Attachment will accommodate slings up to 1 1/4" in width and can easily be installed by the operator.
The Remington Rear Sling Attachment is available for left handed shooters too. The "L" after the part number signifies the model for left handed Remington shogtun shooters.
