    I have these on my shotgun. DO NOT use them with magpul slings or anything else that uses polymer. They will shred them to bits. You have to use all metal attachments or run a carabiner

    • KM

      KM as a side note, these do work best in my experience using a carabiner as the sling points are more rectangular than oval. And actually, I just realized I was talking about the single point attachment. I wasn’t kidding about the polymer slings though. It will shred through them

    I don’t like a big chunk of steel that close to the top of my firing hand. Sooner or later bad grip and recoil will do a number on your hand.

    • Hi Geo- Great point. Your support hand grip is definitely a consideration. If you have a more aggressively forward support hand, I found that extending my fingers a bit past the front mount helps.

      But if your support is further back, like a skeet or trap shooter, than it may not be as much of a problem.

    Don’t trust GG&G, American made or not, they make things out of spec and will not respond to your emails when you have a problem. I bought an Eotech hood from them and it does not fit at all…..I though I was doing something wrong and after reading the manual a dozen times and trying to put the hood on a dozen times, took out my calipers to find that the hood is so out of spec that it is impossible to fit.

    I contacted GG&G regarding my issue and radio silence. Unfortunately they will take your money and run. Don’t buy GG&G, they may be American made, but they only care about the American dollar, not the American buying their products.

      If you are having an issue with your Eotech lens covers, please make sure you have the correct set for you model of Eotech. If so, please contact me at 1-800-380-2540 or shane@gggaz.com

        I wrote GG&G on 12/24/2012 and you now want to reply on a comment thread so that you seem like you care? Of course I checked if it is the correct model. You managed to deliver an exceedingly poor product for Christmas of 2012 and now you suggest that the end user may have selected the wrong model? Where were you when I initially emailed you?

    This post reads like 100% ad copy. Is there actually a new product being announced/tested/reviewed here, or is it an old product that’s actually the best, or…?

    I know this blog posts some sponsored content and it keeps the servers humming so I can read it for free, but I think the readers would appreciate at least transcribing the ad copy into something that includes some more content or some discussion of the product/company at hand.

    In the future for these posts, how about…

    – A personal experience with said products
    – Something notable about their products vs competitors (ie using a certain type of machine or process during production, information about how products are tested, etc)
    – Something notable about their company vs competitors (founder/staff background, etc)
    – Something notable about their pricing vs competitors (maybe they are set up to provide solid, simple products at affordable prices…or maybe they are focused on delivering the most functional product at a median price….or maybe they only make the nicest-finished stuff for discerning tastes and damn the expense)
    – A comment about said product’s use in LE/MIL/Competition/etc, if such a thing has been observed based on the authors experience

    Seriously guys, not trying to hate on the sponsored articles thing at all. My point is, as a cash-spending gun enthusiast who often throws money at the new best thing just because it seems awesome on the internet, this post contains nothing that would pique my interest. I also think that the sponsored articles would blend in a LOT better if they came off as a “Gun Industry Manufacturer Spotlight”, instead of a press release.

    Imho, of course.

    • Hi STOVL,

      Thanks for your feedback. Just to clarify, there are zero “sponsored” articles on TFB, meaning that TFB writers cannot accept payment from companies in exchange for coverage. The ads you see on TFB are the paid route for companies, and the ad side of the business is run separately from the content/writer side, so as a writer, I am not involved with the ads.

      My original intent for this article was sort of a “hey, FYI everyone, in case you were looking for a sling mount, here’s a company for you to consider.” But I completely see where you’re coming from and I will keep your comments in mind for future articles I write. Very insightful feedback, thank you for taking the time to craft such a thoughtful comment.

      Best,
      Chris

    Chris, when the heck is the next season of top shot gonna begin?!

    • Wish I knew! I’m just hoping they keep it going…

      • DV

        You kidding me? Everyone I talk to asks the same thing. The show definitely has lots of fans… Just been waiting forever it seems. Anyway, thanks for the article.

    For whatever it’s worth the 500/590 attatchments seem to fit fine after you go to home depot and get an extended hex screw. It would be nice to get them with the actual attachment. That and the GG&G logo writing looks kind of tacky. Not sure of the quality yet, but the finish doesn’t seem to be stripping off so far

  • deadhorse

    I just slapped one of these on my 930 SPX…got it for a fair price on Amazon and so far works as intended!
