    I'm relatively new to firearms and so I have a beginner's stupid question. I have a Mossberg 590 and I want to put a sling on it. (I know, many of you are saying I don't need one but that can be another thread discussion.)

    I have a Limbsaver SW Tactical sling. Now the muzzle area already has a little loop that allows me to thread one end of the sling. However I'm having trouble with the butt of the gun. I'm guessing I need some kind of attachment to thread the sling but I have no idea what. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for all your input.

    Several aftermarket manufacturers like BlackHawk and Uncle Mikes make detachable rifle sling SWIVEL SETS that are compatible with your stud posts. The swivel sets give you something to attach your sling snap-on fittings to.

    I've got a 590 too, no idea why it came with a swivel post only on the stock. But like 45 sig mentioned, you just need to add a sling swivel to the post on the stock like this:

    If you ever decide to do a single-point sling (something that might be more useful for a defensive shotgun) you can buy a single point sling attachment that installs between the stock and the receiver:

    I've got a stud post with the 1-1/4" sling loop build into the stud.
    It's yours if you want it.
    You just unscrew the original rear stud post and screw in the new one with the loop.
