Midwest Industries (MI) has a new rear sling point for the AK-47. It is a rotation limited QD sling swivel socket that can be attached anywhere on the rear stock utilizing two short screws. The adapter can be mounted to any stock with a solid core, wood or plastic. In spite of the name, this isn’t just useful for single point slings. It would make a great rear sling point for a 2 point sling as well.
Since the adapter attaches via screws, it should be useful on stocks on other weapons as well. This could be great on something like a wood stocked shotgun or even lever action rifle.
Mounting a sling on an AK has always been a bit of challenge. This adapter from MI is something that has been needed for a long time.
Great… we are slowly becoming AR nuts gear wise 🙂
AK’s need love too!
All it takes is a drill to solve any mounting problem…
Sometimes some para-cord helps too. 🙂
That’s pretty slick.
This is to make it easy to use the AR type tactical slings right?
It makes it simple to run a single point sling or provides the rear mounting point for a 2 point sling. So, yes, it makes it easier to run an AR-15 type sling.
