    Well I had some down time at work today, and I had a project I have been wanting to do for a few weeks. So I decided to do some work. I have been using S&J plus two mag tube extension for my 590a1 and have been loving it. S&J extension is super high quality and comes with a slot sling attachment with the kit. Well I do not use a classic two point sling. I use single point and 2/1 convertible slings. The 2/1 slings us a HK style attachment which is not compatible with S&J sling mount. So since the didn't offer one for purchase, I decided to fire up the water jet and design a low profile sling mount for my extension.

    So I found some .100 thick scape steel laying around, score! :mrgreen: so I setup the flow water jet and away I go....

    After some file work, and a quick shot in the sand blaster they are ready for some black oxide. Yeah I made a few extra since two of my fellow co workers heard of what I was doing and also have the S&J extensions, on there 590a1's.

    Man, I just spent $39.00 for a single point for my 930 SPX w PG. Wish I had that kind of capability. I'd probably never buy a part again! Good job.

    That image looking down the barrel is enough to make a gun hater wet themselves!

    It's hard to tell from the pictures but I assume that's an 18 1/2" barrel.

    Oh man, two of my favorites. I spent 5 days in Elizabeth KY for work. I couldn't get loose early enough to take a distillery tour so that's still on my bucket list.

    You're killin' me. I didn't even know about the MM 46. I will try it soon.

    My trip to E-town KY was a bummer in some ways. The town was still dry and I was told it was going wet 6 months later. So here I am in the middle of bourbon country and I'm in a dry town and can't get my tour. On the plus side I drove to the next county and picked up 2 bottles to bring home, one of which is still unopened.

    Sorry to detour your thread. Good look with the sling mount tomorrow!

    Not to Bogart your thread, But you gave me a project ;)
    I mocked one up in 5052 aluminum, Just to make sure I had a good fit, This is actually version 2 the first one I made the space between the barrel and mag tube too far apart, By 1mm... :roll:

    I will be looking into making one in steel, I was thinking 2-2.5mm
    Thanks for the kick in the pants, I have been trying to figure out how I could mount a sling attachment.

    Had a wild hair Friday and was working on the lathe and decided to make some mag tube followers out of delrin. All I had was black so it will have to due for now. I sort of copied s&j design but made a few changes. Just wanted to share.
