View Full Version : altering QD sling-mount sockets

09-29-2011, 9:13 PM
this question got no replies in the gunsmithing forum, so i thought i'd bring it over to centerfire.

does anyone know whether it's possible to alter a flush cup so that a sling swivel doesn't freely rotate inside it? might it be as simple as displacing some metal into the groove where the ball bearings ride?

i know that several companies make picatinny attachments with limited-rotation QD sockets (gear sector is my go-to for these), but railmounting isn't an option here.
