Can anyone shed first hand experience whether or not the handguard does or does not interfere.
Also, what side mount method can be used to mount the sling somewhere near FSB area.
Bear in mind I sling my weapon on the stock and in the MilSpec style as it has proven to work for me in real world situations. I use BFG VTAS.
I have a pair of Colt 6920's with MagPul MOE handguards attached. I use the factory side sling swivel, mounted on the barrel, under the FSB. The MOE handguard in no way interferes with the swivel. I use the BFG VCAS sling on both guns.
I switched out the factory stock with the MOE stock. The VCAS works will with this also.
One of these guns is my Patrol Rifle at work.
Hope this helps.
