High everyone. I just got my first AR. Built by Tactical Weapons Solutions. It has a Yankee Hill free float quadrail. It also has an ambi sling plate at the back of the receiver. I currently have a single point sling that clips to the ambi plate at the rear of the receiver. I would like to go with a 2 point adjustable sling like MGPUL OR Vtac.

My question is: is the hole in the front of the the YHM quadrail on each surface for a QD swivel? If so, what swivel is intended for use there?

Also, what are your opinions on the different brands of quick adjustable slings. Thanks guys.

No, look at Midwest Industries, they have QD mounts.

FYI - I called YHM and found out that they make screw in swivels and attachment points that use the holes I mentioned above. I ordered one, and that solves my problem.http://www.yankeehillmachine.com/store/slings.html

So you replaced one of the rear locking screws with one of those screw in pin type sling mounts?
I thought you were looking for the 3/8 round socket type QDs

That would have been my 2nd choice if I couldn't use the already existing hole in the quadrail.

I received the YHM attachment point. It works like a charm.
