Have you checked out the Denali QD mount?  It replaces the front loop mount points.  There’s a YouTube installation video out there.          https://www.yetiwurks.com/products/denali-qd-point

Good design but have to remove barrel to install.  I do not want to play that game.  Had enough issues just upgrading trigger springs.

You just have to remove the handguard.  The barrel is not removed.

Isn't the issue that rear mount point is what's breaking? Am I getting the details mixed up?

From Yeti site:

Please note that a special tool is needed to remove the barrel nut on the new Scorpion Carbines and the barrel nut needs to be removed to install this QD mount.

OK - the barrel does not need to be removed (my bad) but if you watch the video he mentions  other issues you may encounter in the process.  For me it is not worth opening a potential can of worms.

Mr. E.G. also makes a good point when he states:  "Isn't the issue that rear mount point is what's breaking? Am I getting the details mixed up?"

For me this still looks like the best route to go. https://www.strikeindustries.com/shop/ambush-sling-loop.html

Newbie to the forum. Was surprised when my rear attachment point sheared off with the PMM, googled and found this thread. After reading went with the the Magpul since my LGS had the RSA in stock, pretty nice solution with the factory sights.

Walked into hardware store yesterday and found 2 Strike Industries Ambush Sling Loops!

 https://www.strikeindustries.com/shop/ambush-sling-loop.html

They solve all the previously mentioned CZ issues, are well made (In Taiwan - our friends) and am going to use them on other platforms as well.  They fit into the rail groves with little to no bulk.

Don't know why they are not more well known?  Magpul (great products) probably sucking all the oxygen out of the market on these.

I bought of these recently (which was previously suggested by another forum member in a prior post):

https://www.sigsauer.com/store/sig-sauer-low-profile-qd-socket-1913.html

I was a little worried that it too may suffer the same fate as the PMM mount, but it I installed it and it feels like it spreads the load out over a wide enough area. No doubt that the Strike Industries version spreads the load further, but this feels adequate.

I guess I'll get rid of my PMM QD mount. Bummer.

Sig product looks fine as well.  As these products develop, I look at the older/bulkier attachment points and they seem much less attractive to me now.

As a newbie who just bought his scorpion and am waiting for the PMM mounts to arrive in the mail, I would really appreciate more recent comments on experience with these really well designed mounts.  Is the scorpion loop breakage really a problem or just an isolated situation? ???

Totally guessing, but it makes sense that it could be a real problem. The reason I think the concern is legit is because the plastic hoop is pretty thin (not at all robust) and then the PMM sling mount is going to act like a lever that is trying to pry the plastic hoop away from the gun. Since you're putting the full weight of the gun on this plastic piece (if you use it as a single-point sling) and then add to it extra loading from jumping around and running, and it seems perfectly plausible that the plastic hoop could break.

Which stinks (if true), because the PMM mount is a slick idea.
