The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Alright, I moved the MLOK sling attachment to the bottom rear off the stock rail and took pics as I went;

First screw in.

Need to widen the hole on the MLOK mount for an M6(?) screw to screw into the female hole already there. Just used a drill with a larger size bit.

Screwing each down. (Tight fit)

Screwed down.

Sling attached. Secure, no wobble.

Sling attached, no longer on the stock.

Looks good! I bet you will feel a difference when you are at the ready vs having it at the end of the stock.

Only question that I have is, are you left handed? The front sling mount should be on the opposite side of your favored side, so the sling isn't moving over the barrel and also lends to better leverage.

Yeah southpaw here. I kind of like it because the ammo counter is visible to me when using it without having to look at it :)

Also I found these single-point MLOK adapters; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MLOK-1-25-QD ... 2668651826

Going to try and get one and it will replace the bottom one, should look a lot better.

Now that I know you are a leftie that makes sense.

Its a shame that they dont have kit to chose which side the ammo counter is on, I would like my counter facing the side facing me.

I suppose that QD connector would work fine.

Still waiting on that connector but I'll post some pics with it on. I also got a 3/5 slot picatinny rail attachment to add to the right side of the barrel shroud to mount my fake peq box (just red laser and battery box) for it.

Added the PEQ box on a picatinny rail mount on the other side. Just a battery box with a red dot laser.
