Vert reel on AR15 trigger guard?

Has anyone mounted a vertical reel to an AR15 trigger gard?

I want to do this with a vertical reel like bleutec, mav usa, ermesub, etc... that can be screwed to a trigger guard in the style of bleutec guns or others, but I would drill into the AR trigger guard to mount.

Thanks.

Yes Sea Tux - "fortune favors the bold," is perhaps the secular version of "god hates a coward," but the philosophy is the same. I will be bold and attempt this, certainly, but first I will seek here any previous experiential knowledge available to me.

The worst that could happen is that that I would have to grind flat the rounded outer face of the steel trigger guard before drilling it for mounting. I'm trying to find out if anybody has done this, and how does it work out. Thanks.

The trigger guard is aluminum, isn't it?
Just have someone TIG weld a reel mounting bracket to it.
Or epoxy one on ( not as good, but probably doable)
