M1A Scout Side Sling Mounts

Undertook a small project yesterday. I added a pair of sling mounts on the left side of the stock to enable slinging across the front of the body. I started with a pair of Magpul Mlok GI Sling mounts and filed off the mlok studs from the bottom. I drilled two shallow holes with a 1/2” forsner bit and used a sharp chisel between them to recess the sling studs. On the forward mount I bought a pair of 3/4” 10-24 pan heads that matched a few old magpul MOE t nuts which I used as a backer and used a cut off wheel to cut the excess bolts off flush. On the rear I again recessed the sling mount and purchased some brass threaded inserts and corresponding pan heads. Overall it turned out okay. Not perfect, but strong and functional.

Thanks from boomerpusher

Interesting. Never considered a side mount for my scout. Has possibilities.

Looks good, I like it.
I've done something similar on my scout length LRB. Mounted a swivel on the side for a single point sling. Haven't used the single point since putting a scope on it.
