New!! Gear Sector Rail Mount Offset QD Socket

Posted on March 2nd, 2015 by ar15news

Gear Sector recently introduced their new Mod3 1913 Rail Mount Offset QD Socket. Gear Sector is known for making high quality, battle proven products and the Mod3 builds on that reputation. By offsetting the QD socket they were able to make it about half as wide as their original sling mount and also makes a more low profile design. Weight was reduced by 30% for the Mod3 with the weight coming in at less than 1/2 of an ounce including mounting hardware which is pretty impressive.

These offset QD Sockets work great for adjusting where on your rail your 2-point sling attaches. The mount is low profile enough that you can easily run it on the top rail section without it being in the way at all or could be mounted in either direction on any rail section to accommodate grips, etc. I placed mine on the top rail section just to the rear of where my support hand grips the rail as you can see in the pictures below.

The Patented Pending Gear Sector™ Rail Mount Offset QD Socket provides a forward mounting location for those who wish to utilize our two or three point sling with our QD push button adapter. It can also be used with a variety of other quick detach push button swivels commercially available. We designed the mount to fit perfectly flush with the Tango Down® rail panels to provide an uninterrupted rail space. The socket was designed and machined to prevent rotation which in turn prevents your sling from becoming twisted. It offsets the quick detach swivel 45 degrees allowing the weapon to hang more naturally when slung across the chest in a ready position. It comes complete with all mounting hardware, screws, hex keys, and Vibra-Tite® to make installation fast and easy. Mod 3 components feature a 30% reduction in weight; an 1144 StressProof® heat treated full width steel index, as well as the ability to index your swivel in 8 different clock positions!
