    Winchester Model 12 sling swivels

    Hello,

    I have a Winchester model 12 in 16 Gauge, which has had the barrel cut down to either 18" or 20". I am not home right now to measure it. I wish to add a military type sling....M1907 or M1icon....and wish to know if there is a military style front magazine/barrel sling swivel that I can use. I wish the swivel to be on the bottom, NOT on the side. Have seen a WWII period Remington swivel. I can install the rear one myself, but need a front swivel. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Did you ever find the sling mount you were looking for? Currently doing the same with my M12

    Jason I have a front sling swivel as shown but it is for 20 gauge.
    Not sure if the outside barrel diameter is the same.

    I inlet a ‘03 or krag lower swivel and built this unit for the upper band. Used a bbl band swivel and a spare M12 magazine tube band. Used jbweld. Had to redo one side. My riot shotgun build donor is from 1925. Had a polychoke and a busted stock. The trenchgun build donor is a reblue 1940.

    Looks mighty fine. The rear sling swivel inletting is exactly the same way as I did the 870 Remington I mounted a front brace and heat shield on. Milling cutter...

    Regards, Jim
