I was looking for a single point sling attachment for a Sig Sauer 556 classic with the Swiss folding stock.The Magpul RSA in conjunction with Blackhawks single point storm sling ,mounted directly in front of the rotary diopter is the perfect fit. The rifle balances well ,and the sight picture is not interfered with at all. I would highly recommend this product. Pros: Low profile,solid,simple. Cons: None

This is an excellent product. It is stable and rugged. I have several of them now and I haven't had any problems with any of them... and that's after a lot of heavy use. They've survived Afghanistan with no issues. The loop is large, but not so much that it gets in the way, so it will accomodate even fat sling clips. It works quite well with the Magpul MS3 clips, which is what I prefer. You can use other styles of metal retention clip, and it won't be an issue. My only hangup is that the finish is a little rough, and when taken apart, just looks and feels like cheap cast metal (because it is). The notch on the screw is a little shallow for my liking, and should be deeper so that you can use a field expedient means to unscrew it. Also the screw is pretty coarse threaded. I would prefer a finer thread pitch and a longer screw. That said, I've not had any problems so far. I won't own a tactical AR without one.

It's not as cheap as it could be, but worth every penny... Fits perfectly on my 22mm picatinny rail. I would appreciate if they change slot screws to allen or torx key, that are better to tighten it. This product is made of corrosion resistant material, not sure if steel or other heavy similar. All Magpul stuff a had were good quality and durable!

This is a great forwarded mounting point for my SWAT rifle. I along with many others on my team realized very fast that a single point sling was nothing more than a fad. I as well as many others from my team realized that when your rifle is hanging from a single point sling it does nothing more then bounce around striking you in the groin, thigh or every single door jam known to man. Not only that but attempting to carry an injured officer while having your's rifle slung from a single point is cumbersome to say the least. I opted to use this part on my rail so that I could go back to a two point sling and I could not be happier. My weapon is secure and stays where I am on it and more importantly stays where I need it. I would recommend this product to anybody looking to attach a sling to their rifle.

This is a great produce and I have three on my AR-15 rifles. They are made of steel, they have a great protective coating on them and they attach to the picatinny rail with a solid hookup! I would recommend this product to anyone!

Easy to install with lots of flexibility. Will mount to any picatinny rail and is for use with magpul paraclip sling. Very reliable and very flexible. I have 4 of them and have never had a problem, they always work. Wish I could say the same for everything I have bought over the years.

I looked all over and finally I found something that works for me. This is a great product and works for me. It is very easy to put on the AR. I need to put my sling on now and get used to carrying the firearm.

Very solid construction, well made. It's large, but you need that with the Magpul MS3 slings. I would prefer the MS4 sling with swivels but I have MS2 and its too expensive to reconfigure all my rifles now.

The RSA Rail Sling Attachment is just what I wanted. I am not a big fan of mounting 37 attachments to the free floating handguard on my AR15. The Magpul RSA is sleek, secure, very functional, and takes up very little real estate! Just what I wanted! I previously tried a cheaper no-name look-alike... probably ok functionally, but looked like garbage. Go with the Magpul!

I have 5 of these on different guns. I will buy more as they are a perfect mounting point for either HK style hooks or Magpul Paraclip. They attach easy and can be put anywhere on a picatinny rail. Very well made and can be used on either side of the weapon.

The quality of this sling rail attachment is great and well made! Love that this attachment allows me to use the sling as a one or two point attachment option. The shipping was fast and my order was accurate. I have always had a good experience with Optics Planet.

This is a great product, you can mount it anywhere on a rail you want. I use it for a forward position mount on a side rail, works great in any position, mounting is easy and the construction of the mount will take any abuse you give it.

Slim profile and easy to hook to. I run these on all my guns for my 2pt sling connections if I'm not using a QD sling point. They withstand any abuse I can put my gear through and have never made me second guess them holding up.

I did not like the way my AR hung down with the barrel towards the dirt so I added this rsa to the front rail and was able to cross the sling and carry my AR cross ways at my chest.( and slightly down ) I was still able to bring it up for fast response and see my scope or open sights as needed. The head of the screw is not well done but you can get it tight enough to stay put. Works for me.

Perfect sling mount for the front of my rifles. I put one on a SCAR and the other two on my Christensen Arms CA-10 and CA-15 rifles. I have the QD mounts on my Magpul stocks so these allowed me to use my Magpul sling on all three rifles with ease. Will be ordering more of these for my other MSR's!

The RSA is solid as a rock (or, more fittingly, as a steel ring) and versatile depending upon how you’d like to mount the sling. Bought it with a Magpul sling and it’s a solid package. I use it with a locating rail and so it has a higher profile than some other sling attachments, but it makes it easier to attach and detach

Easy to order, fast shipping and easy to install. Cheaper here than anywhere else I looked - I searched many places online and looked in a few local stores but this was the cheapest. Magpul quality!

Arrived quickly and well-packaged from Optics Planet. Pricing was better than my local gun shops, too. The fit and finish was vastly superior to the overseas knock-offs. (Yes, like a fool, I tried to save a few pennies, only to discard the POS.) Attaches very securely to my pic rail, and is very low profile, which I especially like. If you are looking for a sling attachment of this style, don't make the same mistake I did... get this one without hesitation!

Never been disappointed with an item Magpul builds. This is a popular item-give plenty versatility on a rail, and can take torque and abuse. shipping was prompt, received in good condition. always good O P service.

Very good for mounting to picatinny rails. Can be installed in seconds to the desired location. I’m using it for a Magpul sling with the paraclips. The finish is very good and the opening is large enough for attaching the sling even in low light conditions.

I'm an avid hunter and engaged in regular recreational sporting arms shooting. The Magpul RSA Rail Sling Attachment works awesome on my AR's and even a bolt action tube gun that I had built. I use it conjunction with the MagPul's a winning pair. This is very well made and mounts up nicely. Two thumbs up. Pros: Very easy install, fits very snug/secure Cons: none

love magpul stuff. got the ms3 sling to use this with. Attaches to my rail with no problems. strong and sturdy. my sling clamps on to this and hangs on really well. able to mount this in a variety of positions. although i plan on moving to QD-type of mounts and slings, i would definitely recommend this for any sling that uses clamps or even cords to attach to weapons.

This is nothing special but it’s from a brand I can trust and so far I have zero complaints. Screw comes with thread lock already on. Tightens up super snug. I use it on a 300blk pistol, placed on the railing in front of my red dot it also acts as a anti rotation tab for my hand guard because a portion of this sling mount is over both upper and hand guard.

A low profile, simple way to mount a strap without worrying about swivels. I used this with a Magpul Paraclip to mount my Viking Tactical strap to the foreend of my AR. Used it hunting and this whole set up worked well for me.

Typical Magpul quality at a decent price. Fits well on each rail that I tried it on. Sturdy construction. I'd of liked to had the option of FED but that's what a rattle can is for. The only other thing I'd like to see on it is a "Made in USA" stamp.

The Magpul RSA Sling attachment is well made and fits well on the pictanny rail of an AR 15. It is light weight and well made unlike some cheap knock offs. Definitely recommend the product. I have not had a bad experience with any Magpul product thus far.
