The Agency Rear Sling Adapter for Collapsible Stocks offers the end user a more consistent fit than the earlier version. Some of the recoil tubes being produced are smaller in diameter than the originals or Mil-Spec units. With the new design securely fastening on the castle lock nut, various size recoil tubes are no longer an issue. In addition, the new design does not interfere with the charging handle operation, even the larger units like the Gas Buster. The looped versions are specifically deigned to accomodate the HK style quick clips or snap hooks.
The Agency Rear Sling Adapters are available in looped right hand, looped ambi, right and left hand rectangular, and ambi rectangular. The rectangular versions will accommodate slings up to 1 1/4" wide. All are manufactured for professional use from 7075 aluminum alloy and Type III hard coat anodized to meet mil-specs. A 9/64" wrench is included for your convenience. Sling mounts and side sling adapters are manufactured in the USA.
The Agency Rear Sling Adapters were developed because certain government agencies established policies indicating that if a tool needs to be used to remove part of the weapon to install a new accessory it cannot be done unless the gun is sent to the agency's armorer or gunsmith for the installation. This caused a major problem for some agencies loking to update their weapons due to time constraints and the absence of local agency armorers. The GG&G Agency Rear Sling Adapter only requires that the rear assembly of the collapsible buttstock be removed. No tools required. The stock sling adapter then slides over the tube and, once in proper position securely tightens around the castle lock nut as shown in the photos.
Tactical Slings attached to the AR15/M16 Carbine at a single mounting point, without use of the front sling swivel, are very popular in both military and law enforcement special operations circles. Tactical Sling Adapter systems permit the operator to mount the weapon on either the primary or offside shoulder. As a result, during dynamic entries it becomes easier to "slice the pie" at doorways and move around corners, whether they are on the accommodating a single mounting point, the GG&G Agency Rear Sling Adapters can also be used to attach a conventional sling in conjunction with the front sling swivel. A significant advantage of the sling mount adapter is that expanding or collapsing the buttstock does not affect the sling length. If you wear body armor, a tactical vest or a jacket, you not longer need to re-adjust the sling length due to the extra apparel.
