I'm thinking about getting a sling for my AK. I'm looking at blue force gear's victory sling (unpadded) and not sure if that's a good choice for it. So, what do u ladies and/or gents have on ur kalashnikovs?

I have a "Skunk Weed green" late 70's Soviet AKM sling on my WASR 22 (back up sling is a early 80's " Dark Mustard" Soviet AKM sling and also have an original Romanian Leather sling as a spare ...

If you want something modern, tactical and practical check out the slings by Specter.

They only have 3pt slings? I'm more of a two pointer, rather using the swivel hook on the buttstock. thanks though!

I like cheap East German slings used with a buttstock that has the sling swivel on the side, AK74 style.

The East German slings cost $5 and can be dyed easily.

Also they are long enough to use them Commie tactical style, on the opposite shoulder.

Personally my AKs are all as authentic as i can make them. Egyptian sling on my Maadi, Soviet sling on my Soviet AKM.

That said, if you want a functional, quality sling, it doesn't get any better than the ones sold by Blue Force Gear. The M-203 strapped to my side as i type this has a BFG Vickers sling on it. Ashley (a man) stands behind his product. In the freak chance you ever have a problem with his products he'll make it right without hesitation. Last time i was over here (Afghanistan) we'd ordered what we later learned was a prototype SAW sling. There was a defect in the buckles. He sent us the proper replacements as well as extra M-4 slings as a way of saying "thanks". They may be more sling than you're looking for, but since you mentioned Blue Force Gear, I'd rate them among the best out there.

The Spec-Ops Mamba sling is another good one.
