notice how the picture hides the (ridiculously long and untactical - hehehe) slack or what they call

remaining webbing
...

The material is too thin, not wide enough but redeemed by the quick adjust buckle. I can see how that piece is a GREAT idea. It happens to be fast and adjustable as opposed to the CQB solutions extension release buckle which is instantaneous and not adjustable.

But this sling will probably be on the EE soon. not for me. There's two and a half frikkin feet of slack hanging down in teh ready position, and if you try and shore it up, there goes your quick adjustment capabailty.

and seriously, that is THE MOST devious picture ever. under his left elbow should be about two more feet of "remaining webbing" not the inches they couldn't cover up so had to let you see.

Chapperjoe,

The initial adjustment shoould be made at the attachment point where it hooks to your rifle. Once you have it adjusted correctly then you use the quick adjust buckle. In other words, the sling should be adjusted to fight correctly, then use the adjustable portion to tighten when needed. Such as climbing or rappelin, or transitioning to your sidearm.

After you are sure it is adjusted correctly the additional material is intended to be cut and burned. They were designed to work on shotguns as well, thus the extra length.

Hope this helps.

IIRC, the pics on their site are a bit 'devious' in another way as the 'at ready' position and 'side slung' picture have the weapon slung on opposite (one is "patrol carry" style and the other is "CQB" style) shoulders, even though the text suggests it is a 'time lapse' type photo of its function.

I am also a bit curious as to why $2 of 1" webbing, 1 plastic ladder lock, and 2 plastic keepers cost $35 plus shipping. But then again, they are making money off of it, and I am sitting here typing at a computer at 1am.

I must admit, the concept is really interesting. I have been thining about making one from parts just to try out the concept, as I like the idea of being able to quickly "cinch up" the strap across my body. Maybe add a fastex buckle to quickly dump the rifle if need be...

Here was my attempt at a VTAC "inspired" sling: Booty Fab

I wish it was 1.25" wide, but so far, so good...

My RRA came with a Vtac sling that was padded. I took it off and put on a black hawk 3 point.

It's the best tac sling going designed by a guy who has been there and done that. It's also the only tac sling that can actually aid in shooting. Tighten it up while prone/sitting/kneeling and it steadies up your position - not as much as a ching or highpower sling but helpful nonetheless.

It is also the preferred sling by some of (if not the) the best rifle shooters on the planet like Bennie Cooley and Michael Voigt.

Have the vtac sling.... I like it a lot. great retention and not too thick and bulky
Link Posted: 9/8/2005 6:41:36 PM EDT
I just ordered one on the recommendation of my neighbor who used it, and liked it, in IRAQ. He wants to get some for his entire company.

So many slings in the market today that its hard to choose. I think the Vtac hits the nail on the head. Simple and all you need in a combat sling. Nothing gets in the way but it is still fully adjustable. Transitions are easy, weak side.....easy. Nothing getting in your way especially when your already covered in gear. I've tried all types of slings (3point,single point) and I still think the 2 point sling is the best way to go.

My M4 is set up with side adapter on the tube and a knights rail adapter mounted as close as possible to the delta ring. When the weapon hangs down it acts like a 3 point this way but without all that webbing getting hung up on my mag pouches, etc.

After reading your post I gave it some thought; your right. My blackhawk 3 point gets in the way and its a bitch to get on. The Vtac 2 point is back on my AR. The lower part of the 3 point was covering the left side of the rifle and getting in the way of my controls. Thanks again.
