One of the challenges of effectively running long guns is the need for a sling. This means not only finding a sling that works for you but somehow attaching it to your gun. Enter RISE Armament with their new QD (Quick Detach) M-LOK Sling Mount. The manufacturer is known for producing various firearms components, so this product is definitely in their area of expertise.
RISE Armament designed their new sling mount with a low-profile design to reduce snagging while simultaneously allowing shooters to easily customize the mounting position of their push-button sling. It’s made to be compatible with M-LOK handguards—arguably currently the most popular mounting system style—including the company’s own RA-902 or RA-905 handguards. The QD M-LOK Sling Mount has a streamlined, flush fit, so the mount attaches snugly to the handguard. It is precision machined from 6061 aluminum to maximize it’s being lighter weight and also overall durability.
The QD M-LOK Sling Mount facilitates the use of other M-LOK attachments thanks to its slim design. This means items such as lights, foregrips, and lasers will still have plenty of room on the shooter’s rifle. According to the manufacturer, it takes less than thirty seconds to install. The mount is ready for use the moment it’s removed from the package and attached to the handguard. To make things even easier on gun owners, RISE includes all the necessary tools for installation along with the mount.
RISE Armament had this to say regarding this latest component:
“Just like our triggers, the RISE M-LOK Quick Detach (QD) Sling Mount is yet another example of how we’re vastly improving the shooting experience. Installing a secure, durable forward attachment point for a push-button QD sling has never been easier.”
The company went on to say, “The best part? It only takes 30 seconds to install and it’s ready to install as soon as it’s removed from the package. We even include all of the necessary tools for installation — Allen wrench, screws, and T-nuts — in the package. Add a touch of customization to your rifle‘s handguard and pick from one of three colors: Black, Foliage Green, or FDE. Our sling mount is 100-percent made in the U.S.A. and is backed by the RISE Lifetime Warranty.”
