QD Sling attachments

32 posts in this topic

 Are these things any good , what I mean is , do all you people that use the , trust them no to come un-attached when you don't want them to , like a fixed Sling attachment . I have never even looked at one in the flesh & certainly never used one . I trust most Permeant ones , because I have tested them .

This one happens to be a Magpul

I have never had one detach itself.  Never.  No matter what brand.  Those things are about all I use anymore, that way, any sling can go on any rifle, without specialized hardware.

I have those QD rings on all of my slings. I don't use anything else.

You can get the Damage Industries ones for $6 when they have big sales. They are as nice as any of the other big name ones. Dont buy the china junk. They are all over amazon and ebay. They will come apart.

  Another question , does it make a difference if the release button is flush or not , If not flush , have any of you have any accidental releases ?

When there's pressure pulling on the ring I don't even think you can depress the button

I just finished a full "force on force" day. The whole time with an AR on a Magpul single point sling that used QD attachments. No failures... and I fidgeted with that gawdam thing the entire time.

Another thing I like the MWI ones better than the magpul ones. MWI uses a gloss finish, they're smooth in operation. The magpul ones are a flat finish and they're kinda gritty.

I've never had one come apart but I have had a couple of the bungee and hook-type break at the bend in the hook.  One of them the very first hour of use.  The cheap foreign-made jobs are obviously made from pot metal.

I use these quick detach units now and I am quite satisfied.  USA-made units will last.  The Magpul piece you have here is most likely as good as anything else USA-made.  :thumbup:

 I still have not made a decision on which brand I want , some I wanted to try were out of stock last time I ordered from Brownells . I will probably buy a couple of what ever they have in stock next order .

I just use these ones - whenever I need them, it's the last part of a build, sling is already here, and I forgot about them.  I swing by Cabela's, and they have these.  They have MagPuls, also, at $15 each...  These things retail at $19.99 for both, in a package - cheaper than the rest, and haven't failed me yet.

I think you're putting way too much thought into this one, brother, I really do.  These things aren't the weak link in sling attachment to your rifle.  Get something made of steel, and you're good.  Really...

I lucked out and got my last MWI QD for $1. Even at a higher price I like their finish, it isn't that it is glossy enough to be real reflective but the phosphate ones I have make a squeaky little noise when they turn in the socket where the MWI just glide quietly. I also prefer the style with the raised edge around the button.

  Not really , to me sling attachments are a weak link if they are not up to par for the use intended . I never used these things & know nothing ( well more now ) about them , to me , being mechanically inclined , they look weak , but looks seem , in this case, deceiving .:thumbup:
