The steel, two-piece unit clamps directly around the barrel between the barrel bands of the Mil-Spec front sight housing. Can be mounted at the right or left side of the weapon and features a rubber-coated swivel to eliminate sling abrasion and noise. Also fits AR-15/M16 rifles with conventional A2 front sight housing.
The parts are new, except for the actual sling swivel, which is removed from a new rifle. Charlie's then packages in milspec plastic. The kit has all the parts, but the rivet must be manually crimped to hold the sling swivel in place.
The new FN packaged parts require the sling to be riveted to the clamp. That means that you might need a rivet tool. Likewise, the roll pins that hold the frame in place in the A-frame front sight post require a long and heavy roll pin and hammer. This is a DIY project, if you have the right tools. Or, get assistance from an armorer, gunsmith or a neighbor who has done this before.
Note: Fits barrels with an A-frame front sight base and a barrel with 0.75" width at the gas block journal. Does NOT fit thin barrels or A1 USGI barrels.
Note: Limit of two (2) per customer when available.
