I heard a rumor that someone makes a sling swivel stud you can put in place of the rear trigger plate pin on a Remington 870. Does anyone know where I can find it if it truely exists?

That must have been a totally bogus rumor, because I have never seen the AR15 collective stumped beforeh

One custom firearm manufacturer places the rear sling swivel on the grip's heel. I've tried to locate their website, but my efforts have been fruitless. I'm fairly certain that the company name begins with a "V" or "Y."

I have one that replaces the front trigger pin. Don’t know who made it, came on a PD trade in I bought a few years ago.

Daniel Defense makes a little plate that goes between the receiver and the stock. Is that what you're talking about? It's go no swivel help, but it does work with the tactical slings.

I got one at Wilson Combat link

We just introduced a few products that might meet your requirements:

Receiver Mount Sling Loop



Receiver Mount Push-button Sling Swivel Mount



Receiver Mount Sling Loops provide a way to securely attach a tactical sling directly to the shotgun receiver. The Remington 870’s rear trigger group pin is replaced by a stainless steel standoff with female threads, into which the steel sling loop retainer can be tightly screwed. The sling loop is free to rotate about the retainer. A rubber gasket keeps the sling loop from marring the receiver finish.

That looks like a very interesting item. Just make sure that if you are replacing the trigger pins with screws for a side-saddle, a sling swives, or whatever, that you do not tighten them down very much. If you begin to squeeze the sides of the receiver together you can bind up the action and damage the gun. I use a side-saddle and instead of tightening the screws, I just snug them and use blue loctite. It hasn't come off yet.

Good advice, but this is less of an issue with our system. We don't replace the trigger pins with bolts as Tacstar does with their Side Saddle, but instead use stainless steel standoffs that are threaded on the inside. Once these are installed, you just bolt stuff up to the receiver.

Because you are tightening against the standoff, not the receiver, you have less of a chance of squeezing the action than if it was a simple nut and bolt arrangement.

Now that's some heads-up thinking!
