Sling Studs for New Wave AR ?

Refer to the pictures of the recent Show Special rifles from VTac .

So I want sling studs , the normal kind , that you attach normal slings using the normal QD attatchments . But it seems impossible ? Or at least not without adapters to used further adapters, to use further adapters .

I can't be the only person trying to do this . If only for people wanting to use bipods, this would be the same studs .

So do I need to get studs from Uncle Mike , and drill hole in forend to bolt it ? Or am I missing somthing easy ?

What kind of forend do you have? There are MLOK and KeyMod sling swivel mounts. I've also had good luck with random sling swivels that are threaded and used a Magpul backing plate to attack a lower profile sling stud in between cuts on the handguard. If the rail has sections you can try using the backing plate of that with a sling stud. I have a bunch of random sling studs, different lengths and thread pitches but I was always able to figure something out without having to drill and tap a hole.

One each .

At the AR goodie store they had do hickies of MLock proprietary , that had their own style of QD , but I'm looking for a standard stud .

What's a "backing plate " ? I've got forend(s) with a rail on top , and the funny looking holes/ slots over the rest . ( All my previous AR have had normal forends, this is my encounter with the new wave crap .)

So what brand of hand guard is it? If it's already tapped you could look for a swivel stud that has the same thread pitch and go that route.

https://www.ndzperformance.com/Magpu...mag406-blk.htm

This is a Magpul rail kit. It comes with the rail section, 2 screws, and 2 backing plates the screws attach to. If you can find a swivel stud that threads into the plate part you can attach it through one of the slots in your handguard. I've done it on a couple of my free float guards.

Are you trying to run a Harris style bipod? Check these out.

One MLock , one Key . Not quads, only rail on top ( both) .
The MSP things looks geat , but description says hollow Plastic forends .

Still ? I have these because they came with the gun . Just like the 1911 with Rail , I figured as long as I wasn't going to use it, I could ignore it . ( Didn't work that way )

Should I instead start thread about changing to GI format , the way God and Eugenie Stoner intended ? .
