Two sizes of swivel mounts on shotgun?

Hey folks,

About a year ago I picked up a 20 gauge Pardner Pump shotgun. This week I was at Bi-Mart and picked up a sling. The rear swivel fits easy but the front swivel eye is a size smaller and won't fit the sling mount.

Is it normal to have two sizes of eyes or just the consequence of buying a Chinese shotgun?

Should I go and try to find another sling with smaller bars or file out the inside of the front swivel eye?

Thanks!

I'm convinced the little bastards do it on purpose, just like they (and their cousin Ivan) have a bunch of conscripts at the end of the assembly line with files sharpening all the edges of AK's.
