I posted this question in the "slings" section here, but I haven't received any feedback yet. So, hopefully, someone will see it here in the general discussion who can help answer my question.

For those of you who have the YHM 2 piece HGs, you know there are threaded holes at the front of these guards to accept YHM swivel studs. My question to you all is: Does anybody use this option for mounting their slings and if so, has it negatively affected the tightnes of the HG? I really want the side sling mounting but I do not want these guards to loosen up as a result. Any experiences, advise, and opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance folks.

Also interested in hearing replies from members who have used that YHM 2pc setup & know how it holds up or affects fit/stability attached there after extended periods.

I use the side mount and it works great. It's very comfortable to use. I haven't seen it loosen up at all.

YMMV

I do not use the holes in the handguard but instead use a MI push button QD sling mount.

It has not affected the handguards at all.

I know this was not the exact question but thought it might help.

Thanks Seydou, it does help. I was just concerned that slung weight could/would cause looseness. Well, I guess thats "2" positive votes. I'm waiting until Tuesday to place a YHM order so please keep the opinions coming.

I used it for awhile but didn't like the way the swivel stuck out to far. Went back to using the regular swivel.
