It's now generally accepted that tactical slings should be mounted on the side of the weapon. As more and more operators require a QD Sling Swivel, GG&G started manufacturing an AR15 QD Sling Adapter that provides this mounting position to fill that specific mission requirement.
Our Front And Rear Quick detach Sling Things are a lightweight, durable, easy-to-install and inexpensive sling mounts. Our QD Front Sling Thing installs easily onto the AR15/M16's "A-frame" front sight assembly, on either the right or left sides using socket head cap screws. Mounted high in this manner "rifle roll" is completely prevented. The Quick Detach Rear Sling Thing is designed for easy attachment to the AR15/M16 collapsible stock in the same manner. Both come with Heavy Duty QD Sling Swivels. The Heavy Duty QD Sling Swivel provides additional benefits like a larger quick detach button for an easier and quicker transition and a thicker wire diameter to provide a more robust sling attachment surface. Our QD sling swivels are bead blasted and manganese phosphated in a non-reflective matte black mil-spec finish.
Manufactured from tough 6061 T6 billet aluminum alloy, the body of all of the Sling Things are Type III hard-coat anodized in a matte black combat finish. Our Quick Detach Sling Things are compatible with the Surefire Millenium 500 flashlight forearm.
All of GG&G's sling mounts and sling adapters for the AR15 and M16 are made in the USA at our Tucson Arizona factory to the specifications of military and police forces who use them in the field.
