 A round push button sling swivel?

Does anyone know of a push button swivel that is round instead of oval? I'd like the ability to run an HK style clip with my existing swivel mounts.

Not that I have seen. Why are you wanting to go to the HK style? They are bulkier and make more noise than the PB QDs do.

I just switched from HK clips to push button QD. I use HK slings on my rifles with the standard sling swivels now rather than webbing. They're rubber coated any way.

Actually, to clarify, I'm looking to use a Magpul MS2 sling with my existing swivel sling mounts. At least to get some time with it and figure out if it's the right sling for me. I'm not sold on the ASAP plate yet as I think that would be a noisey component.

Since the quick release clip is like an HK clip I figured that more people would relate to the HK style. That being said, the MS2 clip doesn't fit in the PB swivel very well plus the flat side allows the clip to slide around in there kind of weird.

Anyone else using an MS2 with a PB swivel or other non ASAP style mount?

The ikickhippies SLAP plate is a good alternative to the ASAP.

I am. I have ordered an ASAP but haven't received it yet. I agree that using the HK style connector on the PB swivel is kind of awkward, I have not seen a round PB but agree that it would work better. Even after I install the ASAP plate, I would still like to find a round PB for when I use the sling as a two point.
