Ultra Low Profile Picatinny Sling Attachment Prototype

Strike Industries have just Facebook’ed a photo of their new patented picatinny ultra low profile sling attachment device. It can be mounted on a picatinny rail without getting in the way of anything above it. It could be, for example, mounted underneath a flashlight or underneath an optic. As long as the object above it clears the picatinny rail, it will clear the sling swivel.

    Why didn’t I think of that?

    • Happens all the time doesn’t it:-)

        but does this cost less than 30 bucks?

        • nick

          00.05 bucks less to be exactly

          • gunslinger

            so what’s the advantage of this then over magpul for the same price?

          • Patrick Mingle

            I think its because if you have an optic or something else you can run it over the sling attachment without it getting in the. I think?

        no really the same thing. This is lower than the picatinny “bumps”. Unless something is actually latched onto the rail, it will clear it.

          hence the “sort of” 😉

  • na

    That’s smart!

  • dude

    Not compatible with an ACOG (why you’d stack with your sight, IDK) or an X3 or an AFG. All of those wrap around the rail for the entirety of their coverage.

      pretty sure you dont mount in UNDER an optic, but rather it can be directly in front of or behind. Its sits flush with the picatinny rail high spots to make an even surface and does not intrude into space directly above the rail.

    Very neat, I will definitely be a buyer of this product!

  • Hendrix

    Cant wait get this. Perfect for Eotech Users

  • Bryan McConnell

    Liking the concept.

  • Pete Sheppard

    This should be the Bomb for SU/PLR 16/22s.

  • who cares?

    This is a clever design, and I wish them the best of luck. But (you knew there was a but coming didn’t you?), pretty soon 3D printing will make the expense of the patent process a waste of money. Hell, I don’t even have a 3D outfit, but I could run one of these up in my basement. Sorry, just trying to point out the realities.
