I have an AR15 upper with a single rail gas block and no attachment point for a sling. I have a removable flip-down front sight for it.

What would you recommend for a sling attachment point? Yes, I know I could replace the gas block, but what other choices are there?

http://www.wilsoncombat.com/index_ar_part_acc.htmThanks. Unfortunately, the Wilsons appear to require a rail other than the sight rail.

Though I suppose you could argue there might be room for one of these http://www.wilsoncombat.com/r_pr_slingmounts.asp in front or behind the front sight. Has anyone done this???

Shooting sling, carry sling, or?

You could put a single-point sling adapter on the buffer tube.

You could put a rail on your hand-guard and use a clamp-on sling swivel.

Or, you could use a barrel-clamp type swivel base from Uncle Mikes.

autospike PM'd me with a link to another option - I think this is the winner in my case. He correctly recognized the upper as being an M&P15 which (I'll verify when I get home from work) is equipped to take a DQ swivel.

Thanks autospike!

Well, good grief!

It looks like a double-rail gas block on my PC!
I thought it was just a picture of someone elses AR you used!
