Q/D cups all are the rage right now for slinging around one’s weapon systems. The common circular push-buttons are convenient, easy to use, and highly modular as they can be easily mounted to many places on modern weapons. However, they are limited by that reliance on new parts and likewise, require a new sling. So what happens for those who already have older-style slings?
Looks like Magpul (again) has an answer.
M-LOK continues its expansion towards (rifle accessory) world domination, this time with a fusion of both the old and new. Their latest M-LOK accessory, aptly named the M-LOK GI Sling Swivel is exactly that, an M-LOK compatible sling mount for common USGI strap-mount slings.
While those with existing Q/D cups may look at this accessory with a raised eyebrow, there is an important crowd of shooters that these go-fast trigger-pullers may be overlooking – hunters. The GI Sling Swivel is a perfect medium for hunters, especially those embracing modern chassis (like Magpul’s Hunter series of stocks), but do not need a fully-adjustable multi or single point sling. Further, this system will play nicer with leather strap-style slings.
For those interested, the M-LOK GI Sling Swivel is available now through Magpul and their dealers/distributors. MSRP is $19.95.
