Looking to put a sling on my Shotgun

Postby ic3breaker » Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:43 am

I recently acquired a Weatherby pump shotgun (PA-08). I've been trying to find a magazine cap with a sling attachment and I haven't been able to track one down, was wondering if anyone knew were I could get one or if I should just go to a gunsmith and save myself the hassle? On the weatherby website it clearly shows the waterfowl version with a magazine cap that has a sling attachment, but I couldn't find it on there to order one, so they do exist. But I didn't know if the part might be interchangeable with another manufacturer. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I've spent a lot of time with no leads so far on the computer.

Call this number, 800 227-2023 and ask for Teressa in parts. I know the TR shotgun models have the swivel stud on them so I'm sure you could order a TR mag cap if they are interchangable?

this is the route I usually take on shotguns. uncle mikes makes several options for this installation :thumbsup:
