Lancer Launches Special Ops Division, Unveils Sling Mount


Lancer Systems LP, a leading small arms component manufacturer, is proud to announce the new Lancer Special Operations Division of its small arms business area, an expansion of offerings specialized for military and law enforcement personnel. The Lancer Special Operations Division’s initial product launch is the Lancer Single Point Sling Mount, an exclusive attachment accessory currently in use by a U.S. Navy Special Mission Unit.

“With the launch of our Special Operations Division, Lancer is renewing its dedication to our U.S. and allied military and law enforcement personnel with intelligent, high tech weapon applications,” said Bill Meiklejohn, President, Lancer Systems. “Our industry leading lightweight AR15 and tactical weapon technologies enable us to provide officers with trusted gear capable of handling the harshest battlegrounds.”

The Lancer single point sling mount is an extremely low-profile M4/M16 ambidextrous single point sling attachment accessory. The silent sling mount utilizes a slip-on single bolt attachment system that clamps onto the retractable carbine buffer tube directly behind the castle nut. A fixed permanent version is also available. The mount is compatible with M4, M16, HK 416, M27, SR-16 and similar weapon systems that utilize the Mil-Spec carbine buffer tube. The new sling mount is sold as an accessory and will be included on Lancer’s new Active Shooter Patrol Rifle scheduled for release in late 2013. For full product specifications, visit
