Talking SLAP Plates [Sling Loop Ambidextrous Plates] for Sale

I developed this plate last year and have been selling them a few places and a user here recommended that I offer them here. I have cleared this with Kestryll so hopefully everything is kosher. If not then I'm sure he'll let me know.

SLAP


Sling Loop Ambidextrous Plate
The SLAP will allow you to transition from one side of your AR- Style Rifle to the other and back without having to unhook your sling hook.


SLAPs are cut from steel and phosphate coated. They are a single piece of carbon steel. They are not cast, not welded, there are no weak points to break or make any noise.
They are designed to receive most popular sling attachments and regular 1" webbing.


A local machine shop makes these based on my design and then I have them coated by a local finisher. I did not like anything that was currently on the market so I drew this one up and then tweaked it a little bit. Again, this is MY Design. No one else's. There are currently over a dozen sling plates
on the market today and this one is substantially different from them all. I've done my best at taking pictures but if anyone needs any more please let me know.
These all fit fine on both sizes of buffer tubes that I have but just to be safe I am saying that some minor fitting may be required. No special adapters are required, this piece simply replaces the locking plate on a carbine buffer tube.

SLAPs are $20 per plate and for 3 or more they are $18 per plate. This price includes 1st Class USPS shipping. Payment can be made via Paypal to my user name @ gmail.com or you can visit http://www.ikickhippies.com and there is a paypal button there. If you would rather send a USPS MO please email me for my mailing address. I ship out on Sundays and Thursdays weekly.

ikickhippies,
There was a thread on here that said that Magpul tried to shut you down, claiming that your SLAP Plate infringed on its intellectual property. Any truth to that rumor? (From the quote above, it sounds like you are making a point that it does not infringe).

In any case, glad your still selling. I bought one of these on ARF. Good product. Fits perfectly. I like it better than the ASAP (and it's less expensive).

I'm really glad you like the Plate. As far as the other thing goes- it's kind of like Fight Club. I can't talk about it.

Everyone who bought one yesterday- Your plates were shipped out this afternoon via USPS First Class Mail. Please give them some time to get there as I am about as far from CA as I can get. It will take some time for them to get there.

Alright gents, you've bought me out for now.

If you would like to be first in line for the next batch please pay as normal but be advised that I am awaiting a new batch to be finished and it will be next Friday 5/15 at the earliest before I can ship any more.

Thanks again so much for everyone's purchases. If you paid before 5/8/09 your plate is in the mail.

GET 'EM WHILE THEY"RE HOT

So Everyone who ordered one before today- your order is packed and going to the PO tomorrow.

I've got some left from this batch if anyone is interested. I can say that This will be the last batch that I will be able to sell for the low, low price of $20. Due to manufacturing costs going up on me the price for the NEXT batch will be $24 per unit or 3 or more at $22 per unit.

After this box is empty I'll update my website and paypal button to reflect the price change.

If you have mounted the SLAP to your rifle I'd love to see some images- please send the pics to ikickhippies@gmail.com. Eventually I hope to have a "user's page" on the website.


Thanks again so much for all the interest.

-D

FWIW... bummer to report, but this product did not work correctly for me when used with a Magpul CTR stock.. not enough room to close the stock to it's shortest setting as the ring portion sticks out about 3.2mm to far and bumps the leading edge of the CTR stock.

I have 1 of the 1st generation and 2 of the 2nd generation. Great prices and fast shipping. Bought them from that other forum where they ban people for selling gun parts.

what was the diff between the 1st gen and 2nd gen?

I really like the product and concept, so I plan to get out my other AR and do some measuring as I might be able to use it on that and still salvage this purchase in the end. though I wanted it on this new build & bought it for the new build specifically. that, or maybe put it in a vice and squeeze it, but not sure how that will affect the bend and strength.. or just send it back. not sure yet.

I don't recommend bending it. As per our email you were not happy and I asked you to send it back. I'm not really sure what else I can do for you.

To clarify obviously it appears that Mapul's CTR and MOE stocks will not collapse to the 0 position. My plate does not interfere with anything at all on the weapon but for those of you who use CTR's/MOE's absolutely require your stock to close to the 0 position obviously my plate will not allow that to happen, and neither will any other aftermarket plate out there that I am aware of. Those stocks simply sit too far up on the receiver extension.

The SLAP has been tested with the following stocks with no other issues arising:
M4 Stock Mil-Spec
M4 Commercial
Vltor Clubfoot
Vltor Emod
LMT SOPMOD

I'm almost out but will have another batch in by the end of the week.

Thanks to all those who have purchased plates. I'm current on all shipping right now so if you don't already have yours then it's on the way.

I bought one back over at Arf.com, great ambi sling plate, can't beat the price. I have it with a CTR stock, it's fine. I never put it the shortest setting anyways so the SLAP plate is perfect.

The parking guy just dropped off another 120 plates. Of course everyone who has paid should be receiving their plates this week.

Thanks again for all your support.

sounds crazy, but I really want my CTR stock to work the way it was designed, which means, yes, I want to be able to use the last setting...

so I just bent that beotch into place while on the rifle with a crescent wrench... done now it works perfect

Still have plenty available for those who were asking. I'll probably have to re-up mid August, and I am working on designs for a couple of different weapons.

I'll keep everyone posted.

Just got another batch in today.

All future units are marked with an IKH so that I know where they come from.

Still have these for sale. The IKH markings evidently weren't meant to last as the machinist broke the die when he made the last batch. Oh well, it was cool while it lasted. Honestly I don't even think I kept one.

Anyone who purchased a SLAP Plate is encouraged to post pics in this thread of how they mounted it up and their sling setup. I'd love to see how they are working for all of you!

Thanks Again
