I have an RRA with two forward sling mounts. One is the standard bottom mount and the other is the side sling adapter. Can anyone tell me how to remove them? I plan to remove just one of the two but would like to know how to remove both if possible.

I find it hard to believe that nobody knows how to do this... Should I be posting this in a forum other than discussions? Help please. Drivie

The build it yourself section would have been better, but its good anywhere. If you take a punch and place it in the hole where the rivit is set and take a hammer it should punch it through. I've done it before and it works..

Maybe you just asked a dumb question? [{:)] Seriously though, I would like to know also. I would like to remove the original one and add a side sling adaptor. Pretty silly having two. JBritt

Lawman, thanks for the reply. I'll give that a try. JBritt, DOH! ...it seems silly to me to have two sling mounts also. Drivie

I also have taken the correct sized punch and simply driven out the rivet with a hammer. No big deal. If that doesn't do it you could drill out the rivet first, but I have not found that to be necessary. Watch-Six

I just took a Dremel and cut the rivet and sling loop in the center...took about 5 seconds. To remove the side sling adaptor...just tap out the 2 roll pins on the right hand side of the sight tower. Bradd

If you carefully drive the rivet out with a drift or punch, you can re-use both pieces. I have transplanted my "extra" sling loops on a couple of peoples uppers that didn't have them. [;)]

Yep. Just a standard punch and a light hammer, two strokes and the rivet was gone. No big deal at all.
