  • M40A3 Questions

    I'm looking for information on the accessories/equipment used by the USMC on the M40A3. It may be posted here somewhere but I haven't found it.

    QD sling swivels - What QD sling swivels were used? Were they supplied by McMillan with the stocks or procured separately? What width was used?

    Slings - What was issued with the M40A3?

    Bipods - I've seen the Harris 6"-9" swivel with KMW Pod-Loc mentioned in several places, but some posts say notched legs and another said no-notches. Which is correct?

    Any input?

    Thanks,
    Dave

      Thanks, I see that they do have a CAGE code and it lists:

      SLING, SWIVEL, SMALL
      Product/Part Number CC-35-SS

      It looks like that may be correct. Do you have a set? How do they function?

      I found them on their website:

          Mike:

          Thanks for the info, I'm glad to find the source!

          Did you supply the Quick Cuff Model 1 with swivels or the Model 2 without?

          Thanks,
          Dave

              The issued slings on all the M40A3's I used were leather with QD swivel's, I'm not saying that Mike is incorrect but there can be variances between units. As for the bipod, the Harris 6-9" with KMW Pod-Loc was issued with M40A3's.

                Thanks, HH4. Did your bipods have notched legs?

                  Yes, the legs were notched.
