$29.95 for a Colt "style" side sling mount?

$59.95 for the real thing?

W...T...F?

To the OP: Do you have a PO box, or a non-private mailing address that you don't mind giving out? If so, shoot me an IM or e-mail. I'll drop a genuine Colt side sling mount into an envelope and send it to you for free. I've got a bunch of them that I'll never use.

Cripes...I didn't realize I was sitting on so much money. Maybe I'll put up an ad in the EE. Sixty bucks a copy is just plain silly.

My buddy has two of them (I believe this is what you are looking for). He want's $30 each, and I know they are genuine Colt, because we bought a couple 6920s together.

So what manufacturing codes are on the "Genuine" Colt ones? If you click on the picture and enlarge it, you can see the code on the dogbone, and as I recall, there is more coding on the sidesling part too.

just curious. I've always figured they were "Cult" ones, just without the blessing of the pony.

I could use one too. Have swag for trade. IM sent.

I just looked again at PK's ad and theirs is a factory Colt-not a Colt "style". My apology to the fine folks at PK.

To answer your question Brett, I have two styles of Cult () side sling adapters in my spare parts box. They differ only only in the style of dogbone. Both have the following number on the loop assembly: 12598617

One style of dogbone has the same number that PK's does: 12991254

The other style can be flipped around for different barrel thicknesses-it's marked M16A1 and M16A2. The number is hard to read, but it looks like: 12598618


Hope this helps

If my information is correct, the part that fits both the A1 and A2 barrels is the older one. The other part is said to be the current issue.

I am on the hunt for an original Colt front sling mount too. Sadly I am in Germany and most US based companieswon't sell abroad.

I was pondering putting one of these either on the barrel or gas tube on my SA SOCOM M1A. Think it will fit?

I just got one from PK friday. It has no numbers on the pin-clamp but the number 83005 on the main body. Real or fake?

Cjan,
Just sent you an email, Please send me one, as I said in the E-mail, been looking for one of these for
a while, just can't justify the 30 - 60 bucks for it, But as I said, if you can, I'll zap you back $10.00 in an
envelope, for your trouble.
Thanks, if you can, contact me for contact info

I have the same question. I ordered two adaptors from PK Firearms last Thursday, they shipped Friday, and got them today, Tuesday, with Monday being a holiday. Very, very fast service. These parts were strictly for my Colt LE6920, so I wanted the original, real-deal Colt part. Their site says "Colt Military Side Sling Adaptor - M4 .750 dia" and their photo shows the bar with part number "12991254" clearly showing. What I received is two nice looking adaptors with only "83005" on the main body, and the numbers are located that when installed they would be covered by the gas tube and the part would appear totally unmarked. Is this a Colt part that is marked different if it is USGI and made for the military? Or is it made by another vendor for Colt? It appears to me to be the same quality as the Colt part (definitely not Pro-mag), and I'm just curious if anyone really knows who this part is made by, even though it is being sold as "Colt"?????

I would certainly expect so. It's probably minimal though.

Again, does anyone know if this is a real Colt Part or who makes it???

I sent an E-mail to PK today about the adapters on their site. Will update when I get an answer back.
Also, dont know how well an actual Colt adapter fits but the one I got from PK is loose on my .750 barrel and it took very little pressure to push the roll pin through the clamp.

MGVINCE -
Thanks for the assist. The part 83005 fits exactly the same as my original Colt did. (My new 6920 had the factory part on when new and I regretably took it off to try something else and sold it.) The new part does look very good quality wise, fit is the same as factory, and I had to drive the roll pin in with a hammer and short punch. If we dont get an answer, I will probably start a new thread where more people will see it. I have tried Google with all sorts of wording and part 83005 and cant find anything. I may try to call Colt next week just to ask if miltary parts are marked differently. Yes, it is a quality part. Yes, it fits good. Yes, it costs less. But is it Colt or who is it made by???

My experience with the part is exactly the same as yours. I had to use a hammer and punch to install the roll pin, and the part seems well made. Google didn't produce for me either. I'm happy with the mount, but I would just like to know it is a factory Colt as it was advertised as such.

Got an E-mail from PK today. Said they source them from RAA that they all have the 83005 number on them that the picture on the site is an old one, 2 years maybe.
He didn't know where RAA got them and that maybe Colt changed the number.

I'll try it for awhile, see how I like it. just seems awful loose.

So in the meantime, I just checked their website, and it still has the same picture they say is two years old and still says it is a Colt part, even though they cant confirm that is. Guess I'll call Colt tomorrow and see what they think it is??? Colt Defense Customer Service 1-800-241-2485

Also the RAA could be Russian American Armory in Scottsburg, Indiana. But if it was RRA it could be Rock River Arms which is in Colona, Illinois. That is only 217 miles from PK Firearms which is in Shelbyville, Illinois. Guess I'll be spending some quality time on the phone tomorrow. I will do my best to find out where the Mystery Part 83005 is made. Colt or Not. Stay tuned.

Here is a genuine current Colt Defense LLC front side sling swivel adapter assembly in the factory packaging.
If it isn't in the packaging it is probably a copy or an outsource manufactured example.
