Default AOW with new wood furniture

Ive had the AOW for a few years now. I was tired of the black factory furniture. I was able to get a hold of an 870 stock set. I used a jigsaw to cut the bulk of the butt stock off. I also had to cut the forend down. I reshaped the front of the forend grip and the pistol grip using a sanding wheel. I finished it off with several coats of an oil based stain. I wanted a classic look so I did not varnish the wood. Sorry for the large pic.

What is the nub behind the rail?
That's where the safety would be on a mossberg but not an 870???

Looks like a mount for a sling swivel.
