Sling Thing-Sling Attachments
Standard Front And Rear
It's now generally accepted that tactical slings should be mounted on the side of the weapon. GG&G manufactures Front And Rear Sling Things that provide this mounting position to fill that specific mission requirement.
Our Front And Rear Sling Things are a lightweight, durable, easy-to-install and inexpensive sling mount. Our standard Front Sling Thing easily installs onto the AR15/M16's "A-frame" front sight assembly, on either the right or left sides using socket head cap screws. Mounted high in this manner "rifle roll" is completely prevented. The Rear Sling Thing is designed for easy attachment to the AR15/M16 collapsible stock in the same manner. Both Front And Rear Sling Things use a coated 1 1/4 inch sling swivel that are bead blasted and manganese phosphated in a non-reflective matte black mil-spec finish.
Manufactured from tough 6061 T6 billet aluminum alloy, the body of the Sling Things are Type III hard-coat anodized in a matte black combat finish. The Sling Thing Front is compatible with the Surefire Millennium 500 flashlight forearm.
All of GG&G's sling mounts and sling adapters for the AR15 and M16 are made in the USA at our Tucson Arizona factory to the specifications of military and police forces who use them in the field.
