My Remington 870 Marine Magnum has sling studs installed...

it was bought used (by my father first) and had them then...

so, it MIGHT have been added.


I have seen other Marine Magnums with the same studs, located in the exact same place, so my thoughts on it are that it came from Remington this way... (indication #2 is that the mag extension clamp assembly includes an intergal foreward mounted stud, so the rear one is likely factory also...)

you might inquire (at a gunstore, or with an E-mail to Remington) about this...

If I'm not mistaken, some of the Special Purpose and Hunting guns come with sling studs.

I found one black synthetic stock with sling stud on eBay. Think it ran me about $25.

I've also installed a sling stud in a synthetic stock using the following order:

- small pilot hole as a guide
- larger shallow hole the same size as the stud (countersink hole)
- medium sized hole the size of the shank on the stud
- final hole slightly smaller than threads

I used Black and Decker Pilot Point bits that are flatter than normal bits. I also was extremely careful with depths on each hole.

My first try though would be eBay. You can find parts there WAY below factory or retail prices.

Also, I think I've seen sling studs on some of the Remington camo aftermarket stocks. I imagine other manufacturers include them as well.

It would seem to be such a simple procedure to include them on all guns, but Remington doesn't see it that way.

Aha! Here ya go. 5 days left on this auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1850766307

Most welcome. I think it's the same guy I got mine from. He must have a surplus of Remington stocks.

Mine was nice. In new condition.
