Hi James,

unfortunately you may not find one.

i have a fabarm with a modification using the hatsan escort pistol grip butstock. here's what i did and believe me it works like a charm.

you will need the sling obviously, i got a Magpul MS2 two point/single point sling (ebay) a set of industrial strength velcro (male and female (Wurth has but a full roll cost me 50euros), a small length of same width cordura, super glue and a sturdy metal loop.

first stick on a length of female velcro on the butstock just off the grip. next cut off a length of cordura about 2 inches longer than the velcro. coat one side with super glue and stick on the same amount of male velcro. on the last two inches of cordura stick on a length of female velcro on the other side so that you have two inches of extra stick Wink.

sew a small length of cordura around the loop and pass this through the velcroed cordura on the side where you intend to have the sling. this is your attachment point. now just wrap the whole thing around the butstock and you're good to go.

will try and post a video if i have the time.

if you're interested do not buy the velcro...i have more than you would need :S

I got that from Zahal as well. They have something similar...

Sorry it did not occur to me immediately what u were referring to. I did buy it and it works like a dream. Can hold my Hatsan MP's weight no problem. The only problem I found , considering Im not  6' 3" , the attachment point is slightly rearward on the stock compared to the proper attachments that fit between stock and receiver.

Sooooooooo , you might consider the following.. I know Jbondin will not be considering this Smiley but someone else migh like my idea.

Unfortunately it will require you cutting 2 small slits on the side of the plastic stock. It cost me a grand total of ...... 20c not including the couple of drops of super-glue ( no, super glue will not be used to hold the weight of the shotgun ... DUH )

I bought the thickest cable-tie I could find at an iron-monger about 8mm width, there might be wider ones.... black obviously.. actually I bought hald a dozen but they cost cents.

1) Take off the stock, with an appropriate nut socket. You will end up with a long bolt sticking out of the receiver.

2) Cut 2 slits on the side of the stock where you want you sling attachment to be ( the cable tie itself ) about 1.5 to 2cm apart , just wide and deep enough for the cable tie to go thru neatly.

3) Cut the inside plastic around the hole within the stock so that the cable-tie can go one whole turn around the long bolt-hole when the stock is in place again..

4) Make a loop with the cable tie itself, big enough for it to go around the bolt-hole in the stock, in the slits and on the outside of the stock, making a small arc on the outside, big enough for the sling to attach to. Cut the excess cable-tie with a stanley blade.

5) Put a drop of  super glue on the teeth of the cable tie on the 'one-way lock' ( for lack of a better term ) so that it never dares come loose on you. Not that cable-ties do that , but you never know.

6) Make sure the 'one-way lock'  of the cable tie sits snugly somewhere inside any hollow spot inside the stock.

7) Put stock back on, and voila' , one unobtrusive, very strong, neat , and economical sling attachment that will make your shotgun hang at the highest point possbile.

You might think that a couple of cm will not make a difference, but if you're not a big guy, they actually will.

Took a couple of pics of the end result. Before you think it, yes, the slits are not very neat. The reason is because the plan was to do somewthing else... that failed. But if you're careful, yours will be perfect. The velcro is industrial strength type for a detachable side saddle. Not part of this project.
