Did you buy that used? Looks like someone adapted the action/magazine tube cap for a flashlight holder. From the pic it does not look OEM.

One of those push-button ball-detent type of adapters?

I believe if you unscrew the magazine cap - the part with the square grooves machined in it at 90 degrees, that sling adapter will come off with it.
What could have happened... did.
