I dont want to unscrew the take down pin for a field strip either. Assuming I'm not drilling holes in anything, is the only option to run a sling through the slot on the butt? I don't think the mlok slots are strong enough for a sling.
There is a take-down pin made by KNS Precision called the KSG push button take down pin & QD sling swivel adapter. No screws. Push the button to remove the QD adapter, then push the button again to pull out the pin. I can't add a link because I am still a newbie, but "knsprecisioninc.com" will get you to the web site. Search on their site for "KSG"

Great find. Putting it on my list. Thanks.

I have been meaning to do this for a while. Finally drilled the tube cap to fit a qd cup. Its held in by square nut. Easy to install looks good. Yes it swivels.

I used your QD mag cap idea today and installed one very similar, except mine isn't inset, it's on the surface. I didn't like the potential for my sling loop pictured as in yours to interfere with the projectile and that was a very real possibility with my installation, the sling loop would lose. So into the parts box, and I found V shaped QD loops for HK hooks. Problem solved. They aren't wide enough to ever interfere with the ejecta. But to gild the lily a bit I ordered a minimal barrel extension from HiTech, I forget what they call it (KS7 Steel Defender Muzzle Brake). While at it I also ordered their 90° light mount.

For the rear connection point I'll use my old standby field expedient para cord loop. I'll probably never need any of it.

Oh sorry. It should be the same process. You will need to put a choke adapter. As you can see from the pics above without the adapter or some kine of extention
The sling may be I'm the way of shot.

Using this sort of QD swivel (below) I was almost, and that's the key word, certain that I wouldn't shoot mine off. I still have parts on order to lengthen the barrel anyway. I try not to trust to chance and luck.

If one has the right size drill, and it might require a number drill (I'll check), I don't see why inserting the QD swivel directly into the cap wouldn't work. It's certainly thin enough to go through and engage the ball bearings.

https://www.amazon.com/Braudel-Swivels,-Swivel-Adapter-Swivels-2pcs/dp/B07KF82QV9/ref=yo_ii_pd_dx_s_2/130-0269226-6330022?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07KF82QV9&pd_rd_r=5617aa00-69d5-4b29-b656-4dfff29596b4&pd_rd_w=EE9KA&pd_rd_wg=3VZ7e&psc=1&refRID=1KHEEQ6D9ST6763CKZCF

What I don't like about my installation is that when the gun is hands off it flips itself over. I need to redo the rear connection point and that should stop it. But the front connection is just brilliant. It belongs on the mag tube IMO.

Edit: I checked. 25/64ths is a bit sloppy to make me happy, but it might work. I'm thinking a number drill would have a better fit but I don't have a set. I like the idea of no QD socket at all. I checked further. Not a number drill but a letter drill. A "W" drill would be what I would try if I had one.

Very cool. I should have tried that first. Good idea. If it doesn't work then you can get the cup as you will have the hole already in place.

i think i'll just undersize it and gently ream it to size. I also have some guns with those kind of swivels already on them so i can measure off them.

Hi Whiskey157 - does that pin fit the KS7 the same as the KSG?
Thanks!

Not to confuse anyone, I'm using a 2 point sling.

I'm trying the MCarbo solution on mine now and I'm not crazy about the tendency for the KS7 to flip to it's side when I release it. I find lots of solutions that use paracord to be worthwhile but the problem I had with anything I thought up could be interference with the ejection port. But looping the cord through that slot and around the takedown pin solves that. I like that idea. I'm going to try it.

OK, that idea works and I removed the MCarbo QD pin solution. Having that stick out in the safe really wasn't a great idea if I ever acquired other firearms. But previously I tried the sling slot which is more or less the same position and didn't like it. Frankly I'm going to try that again with a shorter loop. I have no idea why I didn't like it the first time I tried it. Musta been a brain fart. But if I keep that solution I'll need to remove the sharp plastic edges.

I just tried the sling slot and it too works so I have no idea why I originally rejected it. Just make the paracord loop long enough to go through the slot and the HK hook gathers and holds together both ends of the loop. Simple.

I am glad I tried the KNS pin. Elegant and well executed design. No tools need for pin removal. I use the qd attachment on right side of weapons.
Keeps weapon flat to body when chinched.

Along with sling mod on mag cap makes great 2 point sling .

Would you mind making a grocery list for those who might like to do the same? Any pictures? Thanks!
