The present invention relates to hardware used to secure slings to firearms. In particular, to hardware used to secure slings to firearms like that of the M16A2 and M4 Carbine that are fitted with a Picatinny type rail and collapsible buttstock. A wedge/yoke assembly is used to secure an end of a sling to the firearm on a rail and a rotational ring assembly is used to secure an end of a sling to the extension tube of the lower receiver. Both assemblies are designed to be installed quickly without the use of tools and without modification to the firearm. This hardware provides for ambidextrous attachment of a tactical sling to the firearm giving the user a “hands free” capability and allowing for engagement of targets when firing from a “weak hand” posture.
