That looks like a nice one. Brownell's usually doesn't carry junk. But I have no idea it's made from. What exactly is, "infrared-reduction impregnated material that has no IR signature." Does that description translate into some sort of plastic? It kind of reminds me when gun manufacturers describe Aluminum as, "Lightweight space age alloy". i.e. recycled beer cans.

Why not just run your webbing thru a slot in the stock , Free, easy and no waiting

He might be wanting to run a single point sling. The only thing I don't care for is that is says it will fit both BOTH commercial and Mil-Spec buffer tubes. If it's a "one size fits all", that means it has to be flexible enough to bend itself around either size buffer tube. That leads me to believe it's some type of plastic.

Why in the world would you rather spend $50+ to get a mount like that instead of just taking off the tube, putting the mount on, and replacing the tube? Thats the craziest thing ive ever heard. If its because youre not comfortable taking the tube off, ill either do it for you for free or i will walk you through it over the phone. It is so easy to do, it just doesnt make sense to NOT do it.

I have to agree with ryguy - unless he's a police officer who's agency won't let them take tools to their issued guns.

Otherwise, for a single point sling get the $24 Noveske QD end plate and replace the existing end plate. It's made of steel unlike some that are aluminum. Even if you have to break through the castle nut staking and restake it's not a difficult job. Or shouldn't cost much to have someone else do it.

I have two and love them. Besides the strength of steel, another big advantage is you can still collapse the stock all the way when the sling is removed. With the collar shown above you'll lose the shortest position.
