Right now I have a single point sling on my PWA. It also has an M44 handguard (perm installed F/S to take me out to 16", so this was the easiest way) with a Knight's vert foregrip on the bottom rail and a Surefire M952P on the left side. I am right handed, so my thumb hits the tailcap button pretty easy. I want to go with a tac sling, but it looks like the Surefire will pretty much block the front mounting point. Anyone have any suggestions/ pictures of how you have solved this?

I have my 962 mounted on the right side of my RAS and thumb activate it from that side.

If you want it set up that way, I was thinking of setting up a swivel at the rear portion of the handguard using Bushmaster's rail sling adapter. Or, in Brownell's they have a pin that replaces the front take down and has an Uncle Mikes type swivel hole on the left side. That would give you a short run between the two points, #1 would be longer. One other thing comes to mind, I think the CQB sling has a model that will go around the whole handguard. You can still put this behind the light. Mark

Personally, I would not trust securing a sling by way of any of the available side mounts using the M44 plastic handguard rails.

True, I guess the CQB around the handguard may be ok. If he has a front sight tower, he could put there. It might get hooked on the light though. Mark

You jinxed me, now Im probably going to fall on a rifle at some point.

It won't be that bad, provided that a bad guy breaks the fall! Mark

Lumpy- Mounting the Surefire on the right side works pretty well. Thanks.

It works well for me just because my left thumb it jacked up and stretching it around to the left side of the gun is hard for me. Not to mention, being a right handed shooter, I tend to seek cover that allows me to expose on the right...doesnt do me much good shining my light into the cover. If I was a lefty, Id probably do it the other way.

with the size/shape of the Knight's grip and my hand the left feels better, but the right is seviceable. I have also run into the problem that the Knight's grip secures by a center post that screws up int the center of the slot on the rail, but the M44 cross hatches have no center- they are just the two ends. I'm still screwing around trying to find the exact configuration for my preban before I commit to a new upper. The one I have is the used, non-chrome barrel it came with, and I always intended to replace it. When I do, I want to do it all right. So now I'm working all the permutations, seeing what works for me.
