This item is intended for people who want a sling at the back of the receiver. I have used them on several rifles. They are easy to install once you get used to them and have held up pretty good. However, if you don't plan on running a sling at the back of the receiver, it would not serve a purpose and would just add bulk. The only downside of this product is that the loop rattles and makes a little noise. It really depends on how serious you are about noise.

Excellent rear sling attachment point. Allows for a easy movement of rifle side to side. Works well with a Magpul MS3 sling. It's a little tricky to install the "cotter" key, while depressing the butt plate against the take down pin retaining spring, but a "third" hand makes it easy.

this is a great mount and fairly easy to install. used on my rock river and I haven't had a single issue with it thus far. I bought another one for my fixed stock however it will not work with the fixed stock model.

Prior to attempting to install the Magpul ASAP Sling Plate make sure that you have the correct tool to loosen the castle nut on your AR-15 or AR-10. There are several videos on Youtube to watch the installation of the Magpul ASAP Sling Plate. An extra set of hands makes the installation go much faster!

This sling mount is made with quality materials, however, depending on the castle nut wrench you use/own, the ambidextrous slide blocks access to the castle nut for thicker gauge wrenches. I had to find a different solution as I could only find purchase with two of the four castle nut lugs.

Great product works as intended easy to install, especially on a new build. Yadda yadda yadda, 200 characters is too much for a review. Purchase this product, it will serve you well. Everything magpul makes is quality

Great single point sling adapter. Works well for positive control on with both hands. I have one on multiple style weapons from AR pistols, Carbines to my 308 SPR. One of my favs. Pros: easy to use from each strong side or support side. Works well with Magpul Slings and any other with a similar attachment Cons: Will not fit most fancy billet style receivers if the back area is built up. MEGA Arms billet for example

Bought this for a single point sling attachment point. My other ate my firing hand when I tried to reach the safety. This one works great, full control access and I have room for gloves too! Only down side would be noise, though I use a piece of rubber tube and have had no issues.

I wanted a sling plate to attach my Magpul sling to my AR. I choose Magpul for the quality of their products as well as their stand against the anti second amendment lawmakers in Colorado. The sling plate installed very easily, following the installation instructions. I am very pleased with the quality and the way it looks on my rifle. I have recommended it to family, friends and coworkers.

Great product. The item is easy to install and is a great item if you plan to use a tactical sling. I add this product to all of my AR15's and it holds up while using on duty. Experience: Law Enforcement SRT Unit.

If you are running any no QD sling then the ASAP is the back plate to run. I have run these since they first came out now on every gun I own and have never had a single issue with one. Changing strong to weak hand is easy and lets the sling move easily.

This purchase was based off experience. The ring attached to the plate flows freely, allowing the operator to alternate the rifle from strong side to off-hand without the sling binding on your thumb. Installation was no problem once you've figured out whether you have a mil spec buffer tube or after market. The instructions will help you with that and are very thorough.

I purchased this sling attachment to put on a "new build" AR-15 and I'm very pleased with the way it fits and functions. The ASAP gives the user the ability to attach a single or two-point point sling with a variety of sling hooks. This part allows for easy ambidextrous use and facilitates easy transition of the rifle from the strong side shoulder to the weak side shoulder without tangling or binding. I am currently running this with Magpul's MS2 sling. Installation was easy and I particularly liked the reinforcement "ears" Magpul built into the plate adding better stability. Installation involved straight-forward stock removal. No problems, fit like a glove. Make sure to check which stock you have as this part is not compatible with all Magpul stocks. Swapping out the end plate is a relatively low cost way to add a very functional upgrade to any AR platform rifle.

Like I've come to except from magpul this product is functional and strong. The only negative I have about this product is the little key you have to insert to stop the castlenut from turning. Other than that little key, installation was quick and easy. I would recommend this to anyone.

One of the best connection plates on the market! Allows the full movement of your sling (I use a Magpul MS3 sling with this) to shoot "weak" side if needed. (Lefty or Righty) As usual with Optics Planet , It Arrived very Quickly!

It was very easy to install. I ordered a Magpul Sling and together they fit me great. The balance and weught support for my AR are just right for me. I am running a 20 inch fluted barrel. Magpul got it just right. Thanks

This is the fourth rifle I have used the magpul ASAP on because they work so well. They are absolutely bullet proof and made Xtra tough. The attachment point is smooth with the MS3 or other sling and is built to last. Another home run from the designers at magpul.

This sling plate makes it great for using it with either hand. Most sling plates have it attached from one side or the other where this one makes the rifle hang where it can quickly used be left or right handed people. The attachment ring is big enough to easily attach your sling.

This product is very good quality, the stand from Magpul. I places it on a M&P M-4 rifle. Easily attached and it provides excellent movement with the rifle sling. Very simple construction but well designed.

I say for fun because yes, this plate is only for fun and to show off during range time or show time. The noise it makes dangling and sliding around will not be helpful in hunting and or self defense situation.

Makes a huge difference to be able to attach a sling to that part of the rifle. Handles much better from there. Looks good also with magpul symbol on both sides. Allows you to run a single point attachment if you so choose.

If you want the flexibility of attached a clip-end sling to the rear of the lower receiver, this is a great plate to use. However, installation can be luck of the draw depending on how easily the locking key goes in. Magpul provides 2 small blocks so that you can use depending on if your receiver extension/buffer tube is mil-spec or commercial and these need to be inserted into that groove you see at the bottom of the circular cut. Depending on how close your castle nut is and the clearance you have, this could be a slight challenge. Pros: Sturdy, easy sling transition to each side Cons: Installing locking key could be a hassle depending on your receiver extension/buffer tube

Functional. Quality materials like all magpul products. Just make sure you now what you're getting. Perfect for running drills at all shooting positions and angles. I like that it can move side to side rather than just anchored I one spot like QD sling mounts. Now that may be a disadvantage to some people. Peronsally I appreciate it. Bought two. Probably will buy more.

The item works exactly as mentioned. The install was pretty straight forward and being a newbie to the AR’s I had no problems at all. The only minor item is when in use the ring does hang down a bit and can rub on the crease between the thumb and forefinger but is not a deal breaker. Overall a nice product!
