M4 collapsible stock QD for me.....

Been debating this for a while. Was wanting a QD sling socket or my M4 c stock. Tried a few models from IWC, was not happy with the fit. So, I ordered a QD socket from Noveske. I’ve used these before on AR rifle stocks and they have worked wonderfully.

 

When installed the QD socket is nearly flush, only stits about 1/16” above the base material

 

I’ve also considered machining the IWC mount to get it to sit better into the sling loop in the stock body.

 

What works for you?

Nice job!

 

Even the the OEM PG and field stocks leave much to be desired with that stupid 1" sling plate they come with. I bought the NOVESKE replacement plate with the QD socket to replace the useless plate that comes in the PG stock.

 

Wonder why they don't supply it with a sling plate to accommodate a 1-1/4" wide sling, which is like 95% of all slings.

What didn’t you like about the IWC Mount?

 

Be careful with that QD Mount through the cheek rest. That plastic isn’t very thick and it can crack or deform if you’re hard on it. The only real support comes from those three screws through the top.

 

Agreed on the sling plates on the field and pistol grip stock. Their sizing is retarded and meant for carrying it like ofnyour were slinging up in world war 2.

Was your issue with the screws or just how the base fits on the sling slot? It’s certainly not perfect, but I never had a functional issue with it.

 

 

Mainly how the base interacted with the slot. I think I may give it another go. A bit of blending to the base should get it to where I want it.

 

I understand your point about the QD socket in the cheek rest......may have been a bad idea.

The socket needs a 1/2” hole drilled in the material for mounting. The material needs to be 1/4” or there abouts. A square 5/8” nut secures the socket, ends up being a strong setup.

Here is a pic of my rear C stock mount. No drilling. Very strong mounting platform. Mounted for several years under heavy use.

I’ve considered that mount. As discussed earlier, it doesn’t sit into the sling loop slot very well. I believe a bit of blending would help it considerably. Thought I would try something else....never hurts.
