Be polite. Be professional. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet. Semper Fi.

A man who feels he must ask for freedom surrenders it by doing so.

mhen, that's actually the kind of feedback I'm looking for. Though I'm not sure if the swivel will bother me as long as it's secure.

How much does the ergonomics/usability change between mounting on the back and side of the stock at the QD point, vs in front of the stock with an ASAP? I think the cost of an ASAP plus standard MS3 will be the same as an MS3 QD.
My UBR has two QD points, one right at the receiver (where I had the ASAP before I changed the stock) and one at the rear of the stock. The receiver point is nice for transitioning, and if you are actively using the rifle. The rear point is nice for if you are carrying the rifle for a while.

Now, this is only my personal opinion. Many people like QD and swear by it. I avoid it when I can.....
Also, I find the QD button can be difficult to consistently and easily push. When it works, it works well. When it doesn't, it seems like the swivel is running away from you and playing tag.....
Bold and underline added because I feel like I could get flamed for talking down about the QD that many people hold in such high regard....
Check out the BlueForceGear RED QD Swivel. Some guys at work run and love them.

I decided to go ahead and take a chance on the MS3 QD. We'll see how it goes.
