I put the tactical sling (with swivels) from
UNCLE MIKE'S on my 590.
the opening snap converts from carry sling to hasty sling.I really like this sling on my shotgun.

PADDY,

You should have a look at the "Hopson Sling."

It does what you're looking for and more. It is a 'tactical sling' hanging down in front of your body for transitions, etc., but it can also be configured to function as a conventional carry strap for African and American carry. It may also be used in 'backpack' carry mode.
It comes complete with Uncle Mike's QD swivels.

The sling sells for $40.
You may contact Cecil Hopson direct.
He is the inventor, patent holder, and manufacturor.

No website as of yet.

The sling works much like an HK sling except it uses standard Uncle Mike's hardware.
