Hey all,

I just finished my new go-to AR, and I need to figure out how to mount a VTAC to it.

pics of the rifle just so you know what I am dealing with:

I have a rear attachment point between the stock and the receiver (single-point style) via this adapter

Not looking to spend a lot right now if I can help it. I don't need an $80 quick detach point up front at this time...

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I was looking at this one from redi-mag (boonie packer), but can't find any reviews/experiences with it.

I'm assuming you mean a VTAC sling (vtac makes a ton of products), but what is wrong with using the FSB sling swivel and the slot on the MOE stock?

Not a VTAC sling but you get the idea, bottom rifle

If your looking for cheep and simple I would recommend Blue Force Gear® Universal Wire Loop its a great way to attach a sling to different points.



Or if you want to spend some money on a quick disconnect you could try this http://store.impactweaponscomponents.com/roliqudeslmo.html

I myself am running a Elzetta ZFH1500, but this serves for my light mount also.

Also try to loop the vtac threw your stock instead of the adapter like the pic below, I think it would serve you better, but its your rifle.

Edited for correct VTAC product:

I have my VTAC sling mounted on the QD sling mounts on the CTR stock and Troy rear handguard. with the quick adjustment strap is is very comfortable on the move. Much more than I found the Magpul ASAP and M2 sling.

ETA2: I realize you said the stock sling point makes the rifle twist. The rear QD point on the handguard makes the rifle lay flat across the chest and stomach when not in use.

Yes, I mean the sling... sorry about that.

Also, the stock sling point is not comfy during a 3-gun competition as it twists the rifle at the front and makes the mag and grip dig into my stomach... If I was just using it for shoulder carry, it would be fine. But since I am using it for 3-gun and security work, I would rather have something more useful.

Thanks for the reply though.
