Something like this wouldn't be ok? Are you saying I could get some pinched me or jaming into my hand? I ask because I've never used an adapter like this before I'm pretty unfamiliar with using slings on shot guns or my rifles.

Yeah it is!! Mesa tactical is probably best quality out there. GG&G should be
worth looking at as well.

I am not sure having never tried it myself, but I believe that since it sits between your hand and the receiver and part of gripping the shockwave correctly is "choking up" towards the receiver your hand is going to be resting against it and when you shoot a stout load it would slam into your hand which could be painful.

Kind of waiting to see if someone else tries it first, but similar models or ones like this modded to have a sling all have a stud tapped into the end of the grip instead.

Interesting. Picked up my new Shockwave yesterday. Put it with the one I converted last year for a pic and discovered the "factory" version is about 5/16" longer. Not sure why they did that since the older version was already 26.5".

Yeah your right about the grip, under recoil that plate will be painful.

Mine's the same way, but my beads line up with each other when i hold em side by side, just a little more barrel on the factory one.

Right from shockwave on adding a loop/swivel to the grip -

Quote:
Note that there is no predefined hole for a sling swivel stud on the Raptor Grip. This allows you to put your sling swivel wherever you want it on the grip–not just where we think it should go. Be sure to drill a 1/8″ pilot hole.
Seems simple enough.

Yes. Just drill a 1/8″ pilot hole. Thread in a wood-screw-thread-type sling swivel stud. And you’re off to the races. 🙂
It seems that the hardest part is going to be choosing between a two point or three point sling. A three point would allow it to be moved out of the way while working, while a two point is simple stupid. The three point would make it a lot easier to hip shoot, as well as absorbing some of the recoil.
