    Ought not be to hard to fabricate one. A photo of such on a bit of graph paper should be a good start. Mine's buried somewhere (attached to the shotgun). Anybody have one to model?

    Tried Sarco yesterday as they sell a reproduction complete heat shield, bayonet assembly. They don't sell just the sling swivel and I couldn't get any information from them about getting just the swivel from their manufacturer.

    Heat Shield Sling Swivel

    Try:

    East Taylor, LLC
    1101 Anderson Road
    Statesboro, GA 30458
    Ph: (912) 839-4769
    East Taylor, LLC, Savannah, Georgia Winchester Trench Gun Bayonet Attachment

    They make decent quality M97/M12/Ithaca 37 Trench Gun Hand Guards, and could probably supply you with the Front Swivel Only. Give them a try.

    Cheers!

  10. Thank You to mtrpdw For This Useful Post:

    I would prefer an original, but a repro would work for now if I can get one. Regards, Jim
