Strike Industries has introduced a new QD mount called LINK. If you are familiar with the products of this company, then you must have guessed that it should not be just another QD mount. The LINK is an angled mount which once mounted onto the weapon provides a QD socket at a 30-degree angle. Another cool feature of this little accessory is that it utilizes Strike Industries LINK patent pending mounting system which makes it compatible both with KeyMod and M-LOK accessory mounting systems.

Let’s see how the manufacturer describes this new product.

Compatible with both KeyMod and MLOK, our Link Angled QD mount offers a natural push and pull installation/removal alongside the rail at 30 degrees instead of driving the QD socket 90 degrees flat into the rail. Once installed, the Link Angled QD retains an unobtrusive angle while slung to avoid binding with other firearms accessories and support hand while in the firing position.

Strike Industries LINK Angled QD Mount is made of aluminum and has an anodized finish. The company advertises this product to be low-profile and snag-free. The height and width of the mount are 14mm (about 9/16″) and 16mm (roughly 5/8″) which I guess indeed makes it quite compact and low profile. The chamfered angles of this mount should also make it snag free as advertised by the company. With its 35mm (about 1 3/8″) overall length this mount requires one M-LOK slot or three KeyMod slots to install it on the weapon. The weight of the LINK mount is 0.3 oz.

Strike Industries LINK Angled QD Mount comes with a T-nut, Allen screw and some blue thread locking compound necessary to install it. The LINK mount is available in one of the following color options: black, red, blue or FDE. The black version is listed on the company’s website at an MSRP of $24.95. Other color options will cost you a couple of bucks more – $26.95.

    Future article request. Part up a strike industries build with as many of their parts as you can. I'm curious what it would cost over basic mil spec.
