Get a new band with sling swivel. You will have to fit this to make the holes line up properly but the total fix will involve, enlarging the holes in the wood, bbl and mag tube. This will likely solve your problem but if you want to do away with it with some extra work.

Lay a bead of silicone between the mag tube and bbl, install the fore end before it dries, wipe off the excess. Your fore end is likely slipping forward during recoil and bending the screw on the bbl and mag tube. This should be evident if you inspect the notch in the bbl and mag tube closely.
