Some one HAS to still produce these things. I've tried Uncle Mike's and Williams to no avail. My 10 ga. came with fixed (non detatchable) swivels and I can't find detatchable replacements. In the '80's and '90's they were everywhere. If any one knows where to get them, please post.
Even though my search was in vain... I'm still of the same opinion Alonzo. They have to be out there somewhere for a decent price.
Most of the slip over the barrel apparatus I have seen have been leather guards for splintered forends... and I would suspect that it would be fairly simple to include a swivel stud... only problem is keeping it from sliding up the barrel.
I have seen the over the barrel type slings, which are very prevalent on shotguns, but as your friend indicated, they do tend to block your vision, and that is a much bigger issue than just toting the gun to begin with.
Best of luck in the search! If you find some anywhere... let us know!
You know, some people spend way too much time thinking about killing ducks.
