I used to have a Tactical Tailor three point tactical sling on my Colt Sporter Target. Today, I put a Surefire M500A on it, and that sling no longer works with it. Which sling should I use now? Maybe a CQB Solutions Special OPs Patrol Sling attached to a GGG Sling Thing on the front sight? But the Surefire has the little LEDs on the other side of the rifle. It looks like these LEDs will interfere with a tactical sling mounted to the front sight.

Have you thought about single-point slings? CHRIS

Like the CHALKER? http://www.blackhawkindustries.com/product_detail.asp?product_id=1954&d= I heard the CHALKER sling allows the weapon to strike the family jewels if you are not careful. I would like to keep the ability to rest the rifle on my chest or back, like I can with a three point tactical sling, but now it looks like I cannot attach it to the forend. Does anyone have the M500A with a tac-sling?

I found this: CQB Solutions High Speed Transition (HST) Sling http://www.cqbsolutions.com/hsts.htm [img]http://www.cqbsolutions.com/hsts_car_lg.jpg[/img] It even shows a pic with an M500A, but without those damn LEDs. Does this sling work well?

I don't know if this will help any, but I use a Dieter/CQD made by Blackhawk. I shoot lefty, and when I let the rifle "hang" it does so on the outside of my left leg. I can see how it might hit the ole jewels if you were to do any running without holding/supporting the rifle some way. I just walk around the range with it, so it's not that big of a deal for me. Here's my M4-gery before I added my M500A. I've got the old school model, so thanks for the pics of the newer one.

Chris, How does it attach to the rifle? Is it something like this: [img]http://www.cqbsolutions.com/car15_slingplate_sm.jpg[/img]
Link Posted: 6/21/2003 5:28:18 PM EDT
Yes, it uses something similar. I bought mine from Wes from MSTN. It's a Dieter/CQD also. Here's the thread. [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=25&t=148479&w=myTopicPop[/url] CHRIS

Chris, how did you attach it to the rifle? Like this: [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=1445[/img] Or like this: [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=11051[/img] I am leaning toward using the second one with the CQB HST or the Dieter/CQD. Thanks for your help.

I use the top one. Those flat clips are what comes on the Dieter. It works out pretty good for me, since I connect them on the right side of the rifle. The bottom one looks like it would be perfect for the CQB/HST. CHRIS

I have the Wilderness single pint sling...I like the looks of that CQD though...

Wilderness Single Point all the way.

While on the topic of single point slings, is there any good way to get a plate one there without breaking factory staking? (Dammit Colt, why do you do that, anyway?) Breaking staking is a real pain, and it is what has stopped me from trying a single point up to now.
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 11:52:30 AM EDT
Ive yet to see anyone make one that would allow that.
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 12:07:16 PM EDT
What is breaking staking? Will I have to do it to put the KNIGHT'S HD QD SWIVEL on my Colt Sporter Target?
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 5:01:41 PM EDT
Colt factory collapsible stocks are "staked" with a punch so that they cannot be easily removed. Armorer's school recommends heat, a drill, and a long-handle CAR wrench and if that fails a Dremel tool. It really sucks.

Does that mean if I have an aftermarket collapsible stock, I do not have to worry about it?
