Do you have a link or something for this product. My LGS can order it for me. We do not have the cool stuff like you guys in the States. AR 15 owners are not a large crowd over here. ARs are expensive over here, but very high quality. HKs, Sigs, Schmeisser and Hera Arms (mine) for example. My complete setup with Eotech and Pro Tuning customizing was around 3000 dollars. Also we have too much paperwork and permissions to own one. Being an American I had a hard time getting permission. I was even flirting with the lady at the gun registration office (German equivalent to the ATF, but no AT) to get special permission. That's right I was whoring myself out. I just found out I am probably the last foreigner who will have the privilege.
I have tried to order stuff through mail, but many companies will not send gun stuff to an APO. I have been attaching the sling to the sling attachment on the stock adjustment lever. A bitch to get on and off though.
In the past nobody cared what semi-auto weapon you had, but things changed in recent years. I use to own a Galil, but sold it when I went to the States for a few years. Customs said no, because I did not originally buy the gun in the US . I left my SKS in the US with the parents. I probably will never see it again. I hate the UN and the new Tyranny laws of the US.
