I'm thinking of getting these to swivels for my LoPro.

This one would be attached to the front left side of the gun.


This one would be rear left.


Does anyone have experiece with this kind of push button swivel release system? Also, how hard is it to install the rear spacer that the swivel mounts to?

The swivels are first rate stuff. I have one of them on the front of my M4. You need some type of rail to mount it to however. Installing the spacer would only require you to remove the screws from the buttstock,take off the stock, install the spacer over the buffer tube, put the stock asssembly back on and retighten the screws. Be careful when you remove the stock to keep track of the tiny spring and detent pin that goes in the rear of the receiver for the take down pin.

I have one on my VLTOR stock and one on my KAC single point mount. Good stuff, I really like it.

DaPhotoGuy Where did you locate that front rail mount QD swivel? I would love to get ahold of one of those. The front swivel on my SIR does not swivel smoothly and this would work great.

Doesn't Knight's make rear mounted swivel like this for collapsible stocks? And I'm not referring to the one that actually goes on the rear of the stock itself. TIA

From experience please, how sturdy are these things? Running, jumping etc. etc. Isnt that weapon's security "riding" on the spring that holds that detent ball? Any failures. I'd like the system but I'm squeamish. Thanks -SUL2

They work pretty dang well! They were such an improvement over standard sling mounts. I admit that I dont shoot this gun nearly as much as my other, but this one gets used and handled quite a bit. Never a problem.

On your stamp of approval, I'm placing my order. Don't worry I wont hold to any liability[;)]jk. Thanks ARGuy. Looking foward to the QR feature, I sometimes want that sling off or/ reconfig. a single pt. in a hurry if that's a sturdy setup it looks like the way I'll go.

You'll love them. They are extremely well built and a much more modular than standard sling attatchments.
