Just picked up this gun this week and I'm looking for a nice, comfortable sling. I do predator control work here in Texas and do quite a bit of walking on some days and would like something that looks good on the Varminter while at the same time takes a load off of my back & shoulder.

Suggestions?

I appreciate the help, fellas!

How do you like your Varminter? I was just looking at one today.

I haven't even shot it yet, but it is surprisingly light when compared to a RRA 24"Varminter. I really like the feel and the trigger seems to be really crisp. I can't wait to get it out and whack some coyotes and cats.

I'll let you know as soon as it gets to shoot some paper, or better yet, fur!Predatorsniper

For a rifle of that type I would think you would rather have something more like the Mike Miller Quick Cuff sling fro Tactical innovations more of a nylon marksmans sling instead of leather or a tactical CQB style sling.

I was surprised when researching these varmint rifles that the 24" Bushmaster was 1/4 lb lighter than the 18" RockRiver or 20" Arrmalite.
I've been very pleased with mine, and though the 24" is a little unwieldy, it certainly isn't as heavy as you'd think, plus, for long range work, I like all the muzzle velocity I can get.

For the sling, replacing the rear loop with a Bushmaster stud, and using a pair of Uncle Mike's locking quick release sling swivels with a black nylon padded strap attached to the Harris Bipod works well for me.
