My new Sportical has a sling adapter on the rear on the stock, but nothing up front. Can someone post a link to a adapter that will mount up front of the handguard? It has the stock Glacierguard hand guard.

The DPMS handguards may need to be dremeled slightly in order for it to fit.

You can use the Harris #5 adaptor without having to dremel out the handguards. I have included the link below.

The link that I gave is also to the Harris #5 adapter but people have reported having to dremel out the fins inside the glacier guards. If you don't have to, that would be good news!

On the older models you would have to. Sorry, I should have included that. The newer models (not sure time period off hand) will have a channel through the lenght of the handguard.

Just exactly where does the adapter mount to the handguard? The channel on the Glacier guard has large holes down the entire length of the channel.

I just put one of those adaptors on my dpms. You just take the hand guard off, put it through which ever whole you like, and tighter it up
