Customer Ratings & Reviews
Easy to remove, secure, and looks good installed on rifle.
I was surprised now nice this was made. The magpul qdm sling swivel was very easy to push on and pull off by pushing down on the sleeve. Was very secure. Finish was not just a black oxide. I would be surprised if there was anything better made for this function.
I have never liked QD buttons directly under the swivel. You end up trying push the button while pulling out the swivel. These are genius. Thumb and forefinger push to insert, thumb and forefinger pull to extract. It will take a bit of practice to learn the paradigm shift, but well worth the highish cost. Magpul makes quality products. My pair is on an AR with a Vicker's padded.
Definitely works as advertised. Used the magpul qdm swivel on the wife's AR rifle for a two point sling and this was her QD mount on the front. It is a little difficult to get on the rifle since you have to pull up on the small levers while simultaneously pushing down to get it into the QD mount itself. For her rifle, she won't be transitioning from two point to single point or anything like that, so its not a big deal. On mine however, after the problems she ran into, I did end up going with the older style QD mount. Other than that, very high quality and a good AR-15 accessory.
Just what I needed
My Ruger 556 didn't come with a front swivel. Just a hole up under the front sight. I saw this and hoped it would work. The Magpul QDM fits perfectly. It was a little more than I wanted to spend. But like I always say, you get what you pay for.
Most connectors are push-actuated in and out and if a shooter approaches this connector like he is used to doing
The Magpul QDM Swivel is a superb connector. Regarding my other shooting colleagues' comments about the connect-disconnect mechanism: The actuating buttons are designed to be slid up and down, not in and out. Most connectors are push-actuated in and out and if a shooter approaches this connector like he is used to doing, then, indeed, he will have trouble, and, indeed, the buttons will dig into his fingers. If the shooter actuates the buttons by sliding up and down, the action is ingenious and ergonomic and I am sure that this actuation is the way MagPul intended the connectors to be used. Put the connector in the socket, gently grasp the buttons on the side and the buttons slide down and the connector pops into the socket. To remove, gently grasp the buttons, pull out, the buttons slide up and the connector pops out of the socket. Brilliant. I have never seen a connector like this before, THIS IS A NEW AND DIFFERENT DESIGN APPROACH, and I suspect this is why my fellow shooting commentators here have had trouble. This is a superb connector. Pricey, but you are paying for build quality and well as ingenious design-intellectual-property at MagPul. And, it is fully made in America, according to the labelling.
Seems too expensive and yet....worth every penny.
I bought a pair of these for my three-gun rifle sling; I wanted a QD sling mount that was smaller and easier to remove, these are both and more. The problem with standard QD mounts is that you press the center to both install and remove them, this works well enough to install, but removing is a pain since you are pressing in the mechanism while pulling the mount out, you are forced to pull the mount with two fingers while pushing the button with your thumb. Add to that the fact that the sling webbing is usually covering part or all of the button, they work but are not optimal and not always quick to remove. The new Magpul design works perfectly, you push the two tabs in to install and pull to remove (saw other reviewers on here that are not familiar with how they work), so you are working everything in one direction, they go in and come out extremely easily and quickly which is a must for a QD mount. A bonus is that the base is smaller (yet just as robust), so it doesn't seem to wear the finish off the area around the mounting point on your rail the way the normal QD mounts do. I plan only to use these when installing a QD mount on a sling from now on.
