Typically that sling is mounted for over the shoulder carry when hunting. If not, I will consider drilling and inserting a swivel mount. Mar 25, Messages: You could maybe drill a pilot hole just ahead of the toe, into the angled flat, and install something like this.
You'd have to use your best judgement as to whether or not you have enough material for it to bite. Inebriated , Aug 7, I'm thinking the post is the only way to go. I just wanted to check since cutting into the stock is a bit of a last resort. The fixed stock is an idea, however I'm going to stick with an adjustable to maintain some sort of 'tactical' look.

Cheap and available everywhere. The other thought is a small D-ring, check the hardware store. Third suggestion, why not paracord? Two short lengths tied in square knots with a finishing knot properly oriented for your swivel.

This is why this is such an excellent forum. I think I will bore a sling swivel mount into the stock. The stock is not wide enough for a QD mount. I will post a pic after I set this up this weekend.

I would like to clarify that I am looking to carry the Mossberg SPX, with mentioned Magpul adjustable stock in the American or African carry position. This typically means the sling must attach at 90 degrees to the vertical alignmen of the stock.
The front sling mount is attached to the magazine tube and barrel. Note the Swivel mount In regards to carry May 7, Messages: Why not use the paracord the hole is supposedly designed for? Loop some cord through the sling, then through the hole, and tie it off. Maybe a double loop for strength. That would have the sling in the orientation you want, be cheap and easy, and not involve cutting or drilling the stock. Failing that, a milspec M4 stock has the swivel you want, stock.
