View Full Version : Larue handguards and QD socket.

I got the 12 rail and I decided to put my Daniel Defense QD sling loop and it wouldn't seat in. Anyone have this issue? What sling loops fit?

they should be universal. some QD cups limit rotation. try putting it in at 3 to 9 o'clock or 12 to 6 o'clock.

I've had QD incompatibility before, but it was the QD from a KAC handstop that did not want to mount to a Daniel Defense QD rail mount.

I wonder if the DD specs are off as that seems a common factor in your story and mine.

I will play with it some when I get home.

Played with it when I got home and I couldn't get it to lock in at all... I got a Troy QD Swivel in the mail. We will see.

I believe they're made to be compatible with Uncle Mike's swivels.

I emailed larue they told me they use Troy QD sockets. When I emailed back that he had misunderstood part of my question he must have went into the sales records and gotten my number and called me. What amazing service.
