Fore end question on my 870 rem.

I have developed arthritis in my hands and have a hard time gripping the fore end of my 870 pump. I would like to put a strap on the under side of the fore end that I could slip my hand into.
Any ideas? Thanks.

Since no one else has responded, I'll throw in my two cents. Maybe one or two sling swivel bases attached to the forearm with some sort of a short strap attached would work. It would be interesting to give the strap assignment to a good leather crafter to see what he can come up with. Good luck.

Thank you for your responses. My friend made one for himself out of a nylon strap and it's looks professional. He said he would make one for me. How lucky can a guy get.
Thanks again.

Mossberg does the very thing you described as far as a strap on one of their tactical models, they use a nylon type.
