Strike Industries Ambush low profile sling loop

Strike Industries’ new¬†Ambush Low Profile Sling Loop has just gone on sale. I had a chance to look at the prototypes at SHOT Show and I can tell you ‘low profile’ is not quite accurate, it is really ‘no profile’. The sling loop is actually mounts lower than the ridges of a picatinny rail. It won’t interfere with other attachments, such as optics, flashlights and other accessories that can take up space on a rail. The Ambush is retailing for $26.

    I need someone to start making a this with two sling mounts. One on either side.

    • That would be nice!

    • Vhyrus

      It looks like there are two sling points, but one side is a QD and the other is just a loop.

    I’m still trying to figure out why one can’t just string a loop of paracord through the keymod holes. Anyone?

    • DrewN

      Not cool enough. Myself, I use 550 for pretty much everything, but I’m a rigger.

    • iksnilol

      That is so not tactical…And some of us are really bad at tying things.

    • Doopington

      I would think it risks bending the keymod joint between the holes over time. You could divide it out over more holes to distribute the stress, but then you’d be losing more keymod holes.

      • DrewN

        If the keymod would distort from 550, surely it would bend with a solid metal attachment as well. And you can just deburr and radius any sharp edges if you got tired of replacing the cord. Personally, I don’t give a crap what my work guns look like, so I’m happy to drill, file, JB Weld, DucTape, safety wire or Macgiver whatever other field expedient solution I happen to come up with.

      edges cause wear/tear on the cord?

    • Cymond

      Well, a paracord loop isn’t compatible with QD sling mounts which matters to some.
      OTOH, I have a paracord loop on one of my carbines. Could heat be an issue? I don’t know the melting point of paracord.
