Sling Recommendation?

New owner of 28" 930 Hunting Field in Walnut.
Have installed a Nordic Components +6 magazine extension with a barrel clamp and Picatinny rail.

Would like to add a simple, traditional 2-point sling.

Because of the magazine extension cap, the standard front attachment is no longer available. Wondering if the hole of the magazine cap or the barrel clamp would make the best front attachment location.

Would also greatly appreciate specific recommendations for a sling and any required swivel hardware.

Thanks in advance!

I've got a 22" JMPro with what is obviously an OEM Nordic +4 and barrel clamp. I discovered that extra hole in my barrel clamp is threaded and it happily accepts the front, machine threaded swivel of the Swivel & Stud kits you can buy at WalMart. It makes a handy mounting point for standard QD swivels.

I bought this shotgun primarily because it has a 22" barrel with screw in chokes. I find that length perfect for an all-around hunting shotgun, but magazine plug requirements make it ridiculous to run an 8-shot tube for bird hunting. So I ripped all that tactical crap off and installed a standard 4 shot spring and mag cap with the onboard swivel. It made the gun much more lively and quick.

Crappy weather sure makes you appreciate synthetic stocks and rattle can metal finish.

Thanks! There are several very different options, so I wanted some experienced advice.

I also asked Nordic about the best attachment point, and they recommended against using the end of the magazine extension. Makes sense, since it would position the end of the barrel below my ears, and the butt close to the ground.

So I ordered a 2-point sling from Mossberg ...

and a front swivel stud...

so I am now set up like your original sling configuration. It works just fine.

I like your camo Nylon sling. What brand is it and where did you buy it?

I have that exact sling from Mossberg and it’s great.

This is the only one I buy for my hunting guns any more. Its the only sling I've ever owned that stays put and does not constantly slide off of my shoulder. I highly recommend it.

I have one of the claw slings too. As you said, it doesn't slide around all over the place.
