The Blue Force Gear Push Button Sling Swivel was designed to be stronger and lighter than the common Push Button QD Swivels. The smaller swivel body and push button reduces weight while minimizing the chance of accidentally disengaging the swivel. A larger gauge sling loop gives increased strength and durability. The Push Button Quick Detach Sling Swivel has a matte phosphate finish for corrosion resistance and signature reduction.
The Push Button Sling Swivels fit all common quick detach (QD Swivel) sockets found on some buttstocks, forends, rails, or aftermarket socket adapters. Ensure that your weapon has a QD socket to correctly attach the sling to the weapon. For attaching a Push Button Sling Swivel to railed forends without integral QD sockets, you can use the Rail Mounted Push Button Swivel Socket.
For a true quick release sling swivel, see the RED Swivel - a push button swivel that is installed and removed by pulling on the emergency release knob. Contrary to push belief, the common QD swivel is not an emergency release point as the "push then pull" motion is fine motor skill and can be difficult with gloves or in stressful situations.
NOTE: Place a small drop of oil or gun lube down the push button channel every time you clean your weapon to ensure smooth operation and protect the internals from corrosion.
