Replace Cam receiver strap on Millenium?
Could you replace the cam strap on the Millennium receiver with a 1/4" Amsteel whoopie sling?
I have seen a lot of videos on youtube about modifying an M7 microlite and replacing the receiver strap with a LW strap but not replacing the strap with a whoopie.
It would be harder to tighten up than a cam or ratchet but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I will be using a military strap at the bottom to steady the platform.
save some weight thats for sure.
No doubt in my mind that it would work just fine.
I'm drilling the threads out on that threaded pin and replacing it with a lock pin. Much quicker and easier.
It works fine. I added a versa button and whoopie sling in replacement of the entire cam lock receiver on my M7. Also replaced the cables with amsteel whoopie slings so I can adjust platform angle. Works great for the M7. I guess I should say use at your own risk, as you are not using this stand as it was designed...
