I have a Burnsed Loop on my A1/A2 rifles. I just moved to a collapsible stock and haven't decided what to do yet.

But you can't go wrong with the Burnsed Loop.

I've used the Burnsed and the GG&G and much prefer the DD. Also, DD is a much better company to work with than GG&G.

I like DD's Loop-it sits lower so you aren't banging your finger on it while operating the charging handle.

Now I use the GRSC loop, with a snap hook on the sling. This is what I've been using for a couple years now and it's been working GREAT. The sling mounts at a point below where my fingers need to be, out of the way, and the sling can be quickly removed from the firearm and reattached without any drama.

Thanks for all the help Cory. Order inbound.

Are you going to use a 1, 2 or 3pt sling? Are you right or left handed? Do you need QD ability? What type of attachment will your sling have? Are you running a fixed or collapsible stock?

i'm also a DD guy. i had the GG&G for awhile and the two main drawbacks to it were that 1) it is positioned higher so it would interfere w/ bolt manipulation and 2) it was not dehorned like the DD plate. i fould the rough edges cause a lot of wear on my wilderness single point sling. the DD is a lot smoother and i do nor forsee it being as much of a problem, although i don't yet have data to prove this.

Did a T&E several years back.
Took several months in the field, involving more than 100 troopies, and half a dozen different slings and mounting solutions.

The clear winner was he one with the Patent, that the others have copied poorly.


Currently have a large number of rifles in daily use, 24-7, under less than optimal conditions with the CAR-A and sling attached.

The only issue is minor, and involves another vendor.

Service at GRSC is first rate, personal, and cheaper than with the others to boot.

The thng is out of the way, does not bend during abusive use ( the GG&G units DID!), the finish does not succumb to environmentals any faster than the finish on the rifle, and after mounting a large number without finding a single abberation in dimension, I feel comfy to state thet they are the best on the market.

Have a Prototype slot and hook model on one M4 that is getting beaten up weekly.
if this one becomes production, it will be a winner all around.

The outside radius of the thing dosn't "Dig" and snag on the snivel gear, and allows access to the forward assist.
Can't say the same for the others.

I ordered mine off the DPMS web site, it has the ambidextrous hook/loops on each side.
