Magpul Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point (ASAP) on WE GBB

"The ASAP Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point allows a range of motion greater than 180 degrees, enabling true ambidextrous weapon manipulation for both left and right handed shooters." -Magpul

Part of Magpul's theory based products the ASAP is design to give the weapon operator more mobility to engage contacts but also to get the weapon in and out of the way should other emergencies arise. With its signature Magpul logo the ASAP is built tough. I know in the video I mention that I believed there was welding on the swivel bar which I found is false as I have discovered the whole piece is made from cast steel. The only piece of welding is on the link ring. There is a considerable amount of weight (although no more than a couple ounces) to this version than its PTS counterpart. I tried putting this on my AEG and while it fit it would not allow both the collapsable stock and ASAP to function properly.

I finally mounted it onto the WE M4 GBB and now I can see why this has to be as sturdy as it is. With the full weight of the weapon with mag there is a considerable amount of stress on the ASAP. It performed flawlessly I could transition to my sidearm more efficiently than before.
