The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

This is what i'm working with right now. Not really ideal because it's scratching up the metal something fierce, although I don't mind some scuffs and scrapes because it makes it more realistic, but should I get a couple of these things from amazon and will they attach?

Looks like they should work I'm just hoping the holes are far enough apart etc. The one on the stock should be fine but don't know about the barrel part.

Also, the silver bit that slides over the faux shell on my gun has jammed so the shell is always visible and the pump does nothing, not too concerned because I like the shell being visible but going to be a pain in the ass to take it apart and fix.

Thanks guys.

Edit: Also while I'm here, is this as far back as the pump normally goes or is the fault inside causing it to not go all the way back as it should?

To mount those you will have to drill mounting holes in your shroud; this is how I have the slings on my PRs done.

I just use short picatiny rails on the barrel vent and where the Thompson would bolt in the stock, works flawlessly, and wont mess the stock or the vent up.

The build pix are on the other sling thread.
