Magpul Quick Disconnect Installation

Post by KPV996TT on Mon Oct 15, 2012 10:42 pm

So, I pulled the trigger (literally and figuratively) on the Magpul Quick Disconnect (QD) Sling and receptacle. I recessed the receptacle into the stock of my Vector to make a custom mounting point for the sling.
I thought you guys might want to see it......

It is pretty simple. Drill a hole for the screw all the way thru the stock. Then 1/2"? to the depth you want the QD installed. Shove the QD mount in and screw it from the other side.

The Magpul UBR QD mount is threaded so it is easy to screw it and hold it in place.

Sounds good! KPV996TT, can you take a picture of the other side of that stock as well?

If you want to get really fancy, you could countersink the screw.

I'm curious if the QD sits a little close to your nose? It is further back than mine.

Hey guys,
Sorry I haven't been back since my original post.
Here is a bit more about the installation.....
I chose the location so that there was enough stock material left after the installation process. As you know, the stock is plastic and has stiffening ribs within it. I used a Forstner drill bit in a drill press and proceeded to cut down directly over one of the cross ribs so that its remaining section would act as a stop for the QD sleeve. The Forstner bit has a small pilot tip and a flat bottom for the main hole. This is in contrast to a beveled hole bottom using a regular drill bit. The pilot tip provided a center point alignment for a smaller drill bit to drill the center hole through to the other side of the stock. I thought about countersinking the screw, however, with the depth of the receptacle and the remaining thickness of the stock, I preferred to surface mount the button head hex screw. Countersinking would have removed too much stock material in my opinion.
THe receptacle was then pressed into place with a little bit of epoxy for good measure. It isn't going anywhere! LOL
As for the location of the QD. I would have preferred a more forward location, however, I wanted to leave the pushbutton area intact and, as mentioned above, I wanted to take into account a strong position in the stock considering its rib layout.
I absolutely love this! I think Kriss should consider adding this QD receptacle on future models.
Cheers!
