Have a new 7600 carbine with the 18 1/2" barrel. The upper sling mounts to a clip mounted on the barrel ahead of the slide forearm. As a result the distance between the sling studs is several inches more than the setup on a standard rifle. My older Uncle Mike's Super Sling 2 is about 6" short when adjusted all the way out.
Any one know of a longer black nylon web type (slide adjustment) sling that would work for me on this setup?
could always take the barrel band off the barrel and get a sling kit for the forearm (atleast i think they are removable..never looked at one close)...i personally hate anything on my barrel...my pump guns all have the forearm sling kit..
keep on mind the 7600 barrel is free floated. i wouldn't go torquing on that sling. i know lots of guys sling the 7600's and 760's but i personally don't. i have nightmares of bent barrels. silly maybe, but i'm not much of a sling guy anyway.
I originally wanted to go with the forearm attachment and my buddy just bought one a couple years ago that has it. Everyplace I researched showed they wouldn't fit the new Remingtons. I will call Remington or drop them an email to get the final answer. If it's possible, that's the way I will go.
