I need some advice or company that sells the slings for the 14" 870.

Any help would be great. I have read online about several slings that are for sale for this weapon. I would like to know the best as far as strength and toughness.

I didnt know they made a 14" barrel. In my state, Its against the law to have a barrel under 18" and you should check the laws on that short of a barrel. Im not sure but you may need a special permit for it.

Yes you do have to have a permit to have a 14" bbl. This item is not sold at just any store or gun shop, special permits are required. Question Any good stores to buy a sling? I know where I can find slings, I was just requesting another stores maybe someone out there knows of a great shop or store

Mike There are many states that allow NFA (short barrel) shotguns. They are controlled by a federal tax stamp just like full auto firearms. You are right they require federal paperwork to possess.

zemog129 - can I have more details? are you looking for a tactical sling or a standard shoulder sling? BE CAREFUL, please, entry guns with short barrels seem to have the "BAD HABBIT" of wanting to point at the operator! Blackhawk tactical is a good place to start, Royal Arms has a great bungy type (quick Sling) that I like alot.

What configuration will it be slung? If it is a PGO setup and it is just going to be slung to hang under your arm, a simple luggage strap with tuff metal snaps both snapped to the PG swivel is how I have carried my 18 inc gun and it was comfortable during an all day/night hunt.

I have a Vickers sling on my 870. See: http://www.blueforcegear.com/product.cfm?type=cat&cat_id=5&prod_id=79

I use a Wilson Combat (Scatterguns Technology) Side Sling Mount Plate. See: http://www.wilsoncombat.com/images/product/SGSMP-S-870.jpg

I attach my Vickers sling directly to a Knoxx Spec Ops buttstock. See: http://www.knoxx.com/products/SpecOps_Stock.php
