You guys did such a great job helping me find the right charging handle, I thought I would ask again. This time, I need an ambidextrous sling mount endplate for my M&P 15 which will have an A2 style buttstock.

I don't want to spend a lot, so the cheaper the better. Any links to a product that would sit properly with an A2 style stock and allow for left or right hand attachment would be great.
thanks

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/760638/tangodown-sling-mount-adapter-ar-15-fits-a2-stock-steel-matte that's as good as it gets. I have one with 3 deployments on it. I just leave the piece that clips into the bracket attached and attach my along to it. Never a problem with it.

Can I use a sling attachment plate with an A2 stock?

That's what the above device is for. It mounts up right where the stock meets the receiver

There are two that are VERY simple and get the job done.

The IKickHippies SLAP plate: http://www.ikickhippies.com/

And, believe it or not, TAPCO makes a very fine sling mount plate: http://www.tapco.com/products/ar/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=344

Wait - I see that you have an A2 stock. I don't know if those sling mounts will work with an A2 stock.

I like the Troy QD.

Yeah, I actually bought the second one you posted, but I'm not sure if it will work with the A2 stock I bought.

I like the troy, but I was trying to keep this purchase to a minimum.

I have the IKickHippies one and it's great for an M4 style stock but I don't think it'll work with an A2 just imaging it fitting together in my head.

There are some sling mount plates for A2 style stocks. Some are ambi in that you have to swap from one side to another, others you choose RH or LH.

RH or LH versions:

Hope that helps.

Have the Magpul version. Like it, but, it is noisy without a sling to hold tension. Clinks a little bit due to the extra d-ring.

Check out the Fluid Sling Mount from www.leitner-wisemfg.com I just picked one up and as left eye dominant right hander I like the versatility it offers and it works well.

Daniel Defense EZ Carbine QD swivel. Doesn't need wrench to put on.

Yeah, the problem with those mounts (and my favorite, the Noveske end plate) they're not designed for the A2 fixed stock.
