    For those using flush cups on their rifles, are there different styles/brands, and where do you buy them?

    Please feel free to post pics of yours, or PM me and I can post them for you if necessary...

    Thanks in advance!

    For starters, here is a model from Uncle Mikes

    If you are looking for the absolute best quality flush cups (and any other kind of sling swivel for that matter) go immediately to: GrovTec US, Inc.

    The guy that runs it was plant manager for Michaels of Oregon for 20 years before they sent production to China.

    I sent an email inquiry through the website last night, and their response was in my box this morning first thing. Very quick response.

    Since there's no local distributor here, I'll send a check with my order and they will send them to me.

    I'm going to order the twist lock type which are interchangeable with the push button style.

    My buddy has a sauer rifle that has those cups, and he wants to mount a bipod. Is there any way to do that?

    he should install a standard stud and mount the bipod to that, and reserve the flush cups for the sling.

    That's what I told him, but he doesn't want to mess up the lines of the stock when he doesn't need the bipod on it.....

    How sturdy and reliable are flush cups? I worry they could accidently pop out.

    Grovtec-they're as cheap as the Uncle Mikes. Go McMillan, Mil Spec...

    McMillan also has 1" and 1.5" loops that will work with their mil-spec flush cups.
