About the ICS M4 Sling Plate
This plate allows you to mount slings right behind the receiver on an M4. The loops on either side make this sling mount work for left and right handed players. The loop is intended for mash hook type slings as the chosen method of attachment. This will be ideal for single point slings however if you add a second mounting point towards the front of the rifle you could make available 2 point slings another possible choice. For a longer term type of carry a two or three point sling would probably be more comfortable and make more sense.
This type of sling loop is usually seen as an upgrade and is sometimes already included on some more expensive guns. This can be used to retrofit any M4 style regardless of brand.
Q: What sling is right for me?
A: If you see yourself playing very short games or in something very fast paced, a single-point sling is plenty adequate for the task. You can still lower your weapon and have it dangle as you switch to a secondary gun like your pistol or require both hands to perform a task.
Q: How do you install this part?
A: The receiver plate is sandwiched between the buffer tube and the receiver extension. With a long phillips screwdriver (sometimes you might need a metric allen with extensions that can run the length of the buffer tube. Unscrew the bolt that is inside the buffer tube and it will come out, along with a washer. Remove the buffer tube carefully, while avoiding damaging or pulling on any wires. Remove the plate that is already there and replace with this one. Then replace the buffer tube and install the stock bolt and washer once more.
ICS is a Taiwan-based top tier manufacturer of airsoft guns and parts that has been around since the early days of airsoft. ICS is also the first manufacturer to produce airsoft guns coming out of Taiwan. ICS started out by making airsoft guns that were full metal and built for performance for a reasonable price. With over 20 years of experience, ICS has evolved to be a leading manufacturer bringing us high quality airsoft guns for beginners and seasoned players alike. If there is one thing ICS is known for its their split gearbox design which they put into their M4 variants. A traditional gearbox is pretty much a closed unit that has to be fully disassembled for service. ICS cleverly separates the gearbox into two distinct sections which allows you to upgrade, diagnose problems, and do regular maintenance easily. This feature also makes it possible to field strip your ICS airsoft M4 similar to the manner of how a real M4 would be stripped.
