I am looking for a 3-point to use with a carbine triangle hand-guard, is there one out there or do I just purchase the car-15/M4 3-point like this one???????



I do not want to buy it and when I wrap the front strap around the triangle HG's it doesnt go all the way around, because it is too short because of the diameter of the THG's. Do you guys see this as a problem, or go for it? but first let me tell you what I am working with.......I have the carbine triangle HG's and the stock is the CAR-15 4-position, also the carbine has its stock sling swivels in both front and back...............help me out, I need to be able to swing it to my left for drop-leg pistol holster or secondary rifle/shotgun.



I stole this pic but this is the HG I will be using..........

Donovan,

My police department just recently got 5 M-16A1's through a government giveaway program as patrol rifles. They came brand new in the box and marked April, 1973. We purchased the SpecterGear 3 pt. tac slings for them and they work great. Plenty of material to wrap around the triangular handguard. We were able to secure GSA pricing and they ended up being an incredible $26 a piece!

"# 004 also fits M-16A1/AR-15SP-1 variants with fixed stocks and full length triangular handguards"

Another option may be to go with the FSB side sling adapter that is offered by GG&G. Then get a three-point suitable to mounting it set up that way. Personally, I'm with bobafett126 that you should have enough leeway with the existing strap/attachment point that it would work the same for the triangular handguards (not a custom cutdown job is it?) as if mounted on the current handguards.

The sling fits very fine with the triangular handguard, no cutting down necessary that we found.

If you're still on the fence, just email spectergear, I've found their customer service to be very good. Best wishes.
