Sling “swivels”
« on: March 07, 2020, 08:37:39 PM »
So I have a new Scorpion S1 “pistol” with the SB Tactical folding brace installed, but I’m struggling trying to find a sling that will fit.

The Scorpion of course lacks any kind of traditional swivel or QD mounts, i stead opting for those ring attachment points, the problem is I cannot find a sling to work with those and I’m not looking for the HK style hooks.  I have seen multiple pictures of people using split rings of some sort but I don’t know how big of a ring I need.  I tried a normal key ring and it worked, as long as I gently lowered the gun but when I tried to drop it like I would if I needed to transition, or just you know, dropped it, the ring stretched out and released the sling, dropping the scorpion on my toes.  Granted, that was a very cheap key ring, but a quick search of Amazon reveals many many sizes and strength to choose from, what works for you?

Alternatively, assume an S1 with a folding SB Tactical brace, a chambered round, and a full F5 industries 50 round drum magazine, as well as a holosun optic were dropped from shoulder height, and was arrested at around hip height, how many pounds of force must the ring hold?  (Scenario assumes a worse case scenario first round failure to fire with the heaviest possible magazine and load inserted, I guestimate around 13 pounds falling about 3 feet)

I went to Walmart, and bought a heavy duty key ring in the automotive section. The plastic will fail before the ring. The forward metal mounting point is good to go. I attach my hk hook directly to it.

I have the SB tactical brace on mine and ordered the QD mounts from a company called Parker Mountain Machine and went with the Magpul MS4 Dual QD sling and its perfect for the Evo.

On my Scorp I have QD adapter mounted to the M-Lok up front and a Blue Force Gear 'U-Loop' on the sling hole in the rear. The U-Loop is silent and doesn't scratch up the gun, unlike metal clips.

Exactly what I did using a Vickers Blue Force Sling. Works great.  There is a company that cells a magpul attachment for the rear loop attachment on the Evo.  It was a bit pricey toget it up here so I passed.  Google slingattachments and follow your nose to find it. I apologize for a bad memory.  If I find the name I will come back and post it here.

I have the SB Tactical on both of my pistols. I added the midwest industries "Tactical Sling Adapter" to the side/rear of the Brace and that gave me a QD socket near the rear (just like my AR Carbines for greater control).

Installed an M-lok mounted QD socket to the forend and then use a Vikings Tactics Upgraded Padded sling with 2 QD 1 in sling swivels.

I tried a single point sling but it just allowed the firearm to move around too much while moving. Prefer the better control I have over the firearm that I get with a QD 2 point adjustable length sling.

Went the same route. The only downside is that the rear QD mount blocks the ability to remove the stock.

I just went the same route.   Waiting on delivery of the PMM QDs mounts now.

Strike will be releasing a evo specific qd swivel mount. It'll replace the front factory sling attachment mount. Unfortunately I don't know the release date. There's a photo of it here https://images.app.goo.gl/dBSCojyakLsSdoSz5
