Since the 360° Rotation Swivel Sling Mount installs identical to the Quick Detach Sling Mount pictured above, I’ll skip the installation procedures and go directly into the review of the mount.

The 360° Swivel Sling Mount, as with all the IWC products I’ve personally seen to date or have on hand for review, exhibit a smooth finish void of machine marks or sharp edges.

Once the 360° Swivel Sling Mount was removed from the packaging, the first thing that caught my eye was the method of attachment of the sling mounting stud.

Held secured in the base mount by a snap-ring, the sling mounting stud spins effortlessly as if on roller bearings.

Overall, I find the fit and finish of the IWC products shown here to be first class.

Studying these components in detail reminds me more of aircraft parts in their quality, design and finish, rather than weapon components.

After speaking at length to IWC’s President regarding these components, future components in the R&D stages, as well as what is planned for IWC’s growth as a company, I am excited and look forward to what the future holds for Impact Weapons Components and their line of products.

IMPACT WEAPONS COMPONENTS: Rotation Limited Sling Mount For Troy TRX And VTAC Extreme Hand Guards


Yesterday I received a sample from the first run of IMPACT WEAPONS COMPONENTS soon to be released QD / Rotation Limited Sling Mounts designed for the Troy TRX and VTAC Extreme Hand Guards.

From initial inspection, once again IWC has maintained the superior fit and finish that has become associated with the gear I have reviewed to date.

This mount, as with the other offerings from IWC, exhibits a smooth, flawless deep rich black anodized finish, free from sharp edges.

The Troy TRX / VTAC Extreme Sling Mount consists of the following components:

Impact Weapons Components will soon be announcing the release of their new revised BIPOD Mount. I have obtained a pre-release sample for review here on Weapon Evolution.

IWC reports that their new version BIPOD Mount compared to the previous version, has reduced the weight by .6 ounces to a total weight of 1.23 ounces, and the height reduced by 30%. All evidence of IWC’s continuing quest for improvements to bring to the end user a top quality product.





A side-by-side comparison shows the obvious reduction in height of the Version II Bipod Mount compared to the Version I Bipod Mount.

http://quib.weaponevolution.com/BP Mount 1.JPG




A quick measurement of the Version I Bipod Mount has the width at about .6255”.

http://quib.weaponevolution.com/BP Mount 2.JPG





A quick measurement of the Version II Bipod Mount has the width at about .4660”. A difference between versions of about .1595”.


http://quib.weaponevolution.com/BP Mount 3.JPG





As with the Version I bipod mount, Version II exhibits IWC’s same expert machining of the interior of the mount to reduce weight, but maintain strength.


http://quib.weaponevolution.com/BP Mount 4.JPG





The following two photos of the bipod installed, demonstrate the height reduction between Version I and Version II.

Continuing with Version II of the 360° Sling Mount, we can see in the comparison photo below, the reduction in size of the Version II Mount.

While reducing the size of the sling mount base by 20%, IWC was able to increase the size of the mounting hardware with Version II of the sling mount. Version II now utilizes 10-32 screws whereas Version I utilized 8-32 screws. IWC reports weight reduction between versions puts the Version II at .86 ounces total weight.

In keeping with IWC’s high quality standards, the Version II sling mount shows no signs of sharp edges and exhibits IWC’s smooth machining and an overall rich deep black hard coat anodizing.


http://quib.weaponevolution.com/SM.JPG




The Version I sling mount base height measures at about .6290”.


http://quib.weaponevolution.com/SM1.JPG




The Version II sling mount base height measures at about .5755”. A difference from Version I of about .0535“.


http://quib.weaponevolution.com/SM2.JPG




This photo illustrates the sling stud mounting differences between both versions, with the obvious removal of material from within the center of the Version II mount.
