Put me down for one...
Absolutely, all our designs retain the original sling mount on the left side of the adapter.Is there any provision for a sling mount in the adapter? Does the charging handle clear the adapter with no issue?
My sling mount in the FAST stock is in the bottom of where your adapter sits...you said it's on the left side....but I don't see on in the pics. Does that mean it will be there on the production models?Absolutely, all our designs retain the original sling mount on the left side of the adapter.
Yes, the charging handle operates perfectly, the adapter tapers as it goes up, so the charging handle clears it easily.
I believe we are using 6061 T6. I will check with the machinist to be certain.

Ya, left side will be better for 80% of users (lefties get fucked)....with the "drop" in the adapter, trying to place it where RA did on the FAST would be a mistake. As it is, where RA put it makes it ambi....but it hits your wrist in the current location. That drop in your adapter would make it that much worse *unless* there's enough meat on it at the very lowest portion next to the ACR stock itself.Yes, we were mainly focused on proper alignment and measurements with the model.
It will be there on the production run. I'll see if I can drill and mount one tonight and get some pictures with it. Yes it will be on the left side. We had discussed a bottom QD mount but I don't like the way it twists the weapon when I transition to pistol.
No thanks. I don't see the ACR being an upgrade from the FAST personally. I was just asking questions for the members here who definitely will want (and have wanted) this product for quite a while. Glad to see someone able to step up and produce these. It's good for the platform overall.Sean, I missed if you said you definitely wanted one or not?
There are multiple issues with the FAST stock that I discussed here years ago when they first came out: http://www.xcrforum.com/forum/7-general-discussion/11403-fast-stock-review.htmlNo worries, thanks for the input.
I personally don't like the FAST. The way it moves feels flimsy to me, whereas the ACR stock doesn't. Personal preference.
