Ok so I am getting frustrated.
I want to mount a sling on my SGL21 and I am lefty so I have an instant problem.
I purchased a Blue force Gear Universal Wire loop to mount forward on the rifle and thread through/between gas tube and barrel. That is good to go. Simple but perfect solution.
The problem is mounting the sling to the buttstock. I purchased a buttstock band that is for an AR15 A2 http://www.blueforcegear.com/product...Buttstock.html
thinking that I could sinch it down tight enough and run part of it through the sling point attachment. No go. It just doesn't work, plus the sling point attachment faces the wrong way (foward and back not up and down) so securing the thing is a not going to work. No big deal. It gives me an excuse to build a full size AR with an A2 stock. Builds have been started with less.
I have already started to order parts!
I have a Warsaw Pact length polymer stock from K-VAR. If it was wood I would not be having this problem.
Is the material close to the stock tang on the buttstock thick enough to support installing an AK sling point attachment? I know the stocks are built like a chocolate Easter Bunny so they are not solid.
Perhaps I need to order the Blue Force Universal loop and go that way? Not what I realy wanted to do but it may be my only choice.
I was thinking about switching the sling point attachment to the direct opposite side of the current one on the other side of the stock. Do you think this would work? I dont want to jack my stock up if it is a hopeless cause? I removed the buttplate and it looks like it might work.
Anyone else attempted this before?
Personally I think the AK is perfect for us left handed shooters with this one exception.
