Oregon based GrovTec has released a new ambi (ambidextrous) QD sling mount option for folks who don’t want to disassemble their rifle or are unable to easily take a brace or stock off. it’s called the Tri-Base Buffer Tube Sling Mount and it’s designed to install on “…any mil-spec buffer tube” using hex keys.

The new Quick Detach sling mount from GrovTac attaches to your buffer tube almost like an old school manacle.

GrovTac says their three full-rotation mounting point design does away with any need to replace receiver end plates or “…fight with staked castle nuts”.

From the release:

Type III hard black anodizing protects the 6061 aluminum and matches your buffer tube/receiver extension.  With the rise in popularity of braces and pistol stabilizing devices GrovTec’s solution also adds excellent utility to compact firearms such as AK pistols, rifle-caliber pistols, and submachine-gun builds by adding a critical point of attachment for slings.

Looking to attach a rifle sling? GrovTec's sling mount system clasps the buffer tube without disassembling the weapon.
