Purchased the newest version of the 686 for upland hunting about a year ago. It came with the parts to install sling mounts, but Cole's said they were crap and said short of welding something to the barrel, there wasn't much they could do.

I'm going to really miss a sling once I start chasing birds. Has anyone solved the problem of adding a sling that's reliable, comfortable, and useful?

Thanks!

A sling on a O/U? Oh the horror.

Europe has been doing it for years; I don't think my Merkel or I have anything but good memories of my slung O/U. Enjoy, I love mine.

I bought a Browning Superposed that had been fitted with a sling by the PO. The sing used a screw in QD mount on the buttstock and had a well machined front mount that clamped around the bottom barrel in front of the for end. It sure worked nicely. The front mount had been on the gun a long time when I removed it and it was not scratched or rusted under the mount so I guess it worked fine.
