Nice Idea - good solution!

Two things though; that hole just at the stock, is that not for quick-detach sling lugs? They're not expensive - about €15 for 2 if I remember correctly. And secondly, although I love your solution...I reckon that it will loosen your body pin, as it will act as a lever so your rifle may plummet one of the days

I love to see innovation amongst skirmishers...always makes me smile. Except when Thermo butchers a perfectly nice KWC 24/7...

Got a short bungee cord that has carabiners attached on watch end, clips on to me chest rig, another carabiner on my m4, waay more comfortable than my €15 sling!
