As with all Magpul products, this accessory was made to be touch. With this goal in mind, the engineers at Magpul opted to manufacture this component from steel. Although steel is normally associated with a significant amount of weight, due to the diminutive size of this component, you surely will not notice the weight. To make this steel even more durable and corrosion resistant, the steel has been finished with a nitrocarburizing process for enhanced protection.
To make this unit as ergonomic as possible, the designers at Magpul decided to mount the QD cup on an offset angle. This better accommodates most shooters, as it is easier to get to and many users find that it is less prone to tangle your sling.
