Sometimes finding a satisfactory way to mount a sling can be problematic on many firearms. Your firearm may not have a factory provided sling mount or a place to attach a rail mount. Even if there is a sling mount, it may not be in the location that you prefer.
The Universal Wire Loop (UWL) from Blue Force Gear solves sling mounting problems. The UWL consists of two parts: a coated steel cable and a hard anodized aluminum sling loop. It comes in two lengths (I find the longer one more versatile). The user simply wraps the UWL around anything that is available, then wraps the aluminum sling loop through the wire loop, then attach the sling of your choice. It is that easy.
I have used the UWL to attach a sling between the delta ring and upper receiver of an AR-15. This is a great way to mount the sling close to the receiver for those who like standard hand guards. It can be wrapped through a fore end rail or through the front sight base. I have seen it wrapped through the sling mount on the handguard retainer cap of an AK-47 and then passed between the gas tube and barrel to make a left side sling mount. The applications are just about limitless.
The UWL is the kind of thing that every one should have tucked away somewhere for those times when you just can’t figure out a way to attach a sling to something. This is one versatile piece of gear.
