    It's an 870 express tactical, spec-ops stock, with a tacstar side saddle. New to slings and don't know where to start.

    Thanks guys.

    I guess the obvious answer would be a tacsling. Anyone have experience with this?

    Blueforce Gear, Gear Sector, and Boonie Packer all make good slings. I have also seen recommendations for Rocky Mountain Tactical and Viking tactics slings but don't have any experience with them.

    I use Viking Tactics' sling on both of my social AR's. It's a great piece of gear.

    My 870P wears a standard nylon strap, because that's what my work gun has and I like to keep things the same.

    I use a 1" wide nylon sling mounted to the sling swivel on the toe of the stock and magazine cap.

    Going with the rocky mountain 2 point sling. Definitely within my price range. Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

    Those Blueforce Vickers do look awesome though.

    You made a good choice going with the RMT, I have one of theirs on my 500 and it is a great product.
