Who makes the best single point tactical sling? I am currently trying to decide between these three models.

Specter HST Sling
Blue Force Gear U.D.C. Sling
Troy CQB Sling

New recommendations welcomed
Thank you

I'm running two HST slings (pre-Specter, these are CQB Solutions models) & I've been very satisfied with them. Like any single-point, I wouldn't want to have to carry a rifle with them on a long patrol, but for what I use them for (entries, high risk apprehension, etc) I don't usually have to carry the rifle more than a couple of hours, so they work fine.

They are great for building clearing, if you prefer cross-shoulder transitions on corners to doing everything from your strong side.

Like all the single-points I have tried, you have to be conscious of using the support hand to swing the rifle out of the way when transitioning to handgun. With the sling over my strong-side shoulder, if I just drop the rifle, it has an annoying habit of hitting me in the family jewels about half the time. So I just use the support hand on the forearm to swing the rifle over to the support side while I clear my handgun with my strong hand.

Also if you go to prone or kneeling, you have to be careful to keep one hand on the rifle, to avoid having the muzzle dropping into the dirt.

Overall, I really like the HST. It has worked well for me so far....

ETA: I tried putting the sling on top of my support side shoulder instead, to avoid hitting Captain Happy & his friends, but when I drop it, it has a tendency to swing over in front of my holster & get in the way on transitioning to handgun. So I went back to the original carry, & just train to control the rifle with support hand until it's out of the way.

Are any of the ASP slings going to be available soon?

The CQB Solutions is a good sling...

Also, the Blackhawk Dieter Sling is good too...just gotta trim the ends of the straps if you are not a real big guy.

I think the Profile Tactical slings made by Arin here are as good as any i have tried. They are inexpensive and well thought out. Simple, reliable, inexpensive, and the bottom line is: They work. Sure, you can spend more money on a sling, but it won't do anything any better than the profile sling.

I use and recommend The Wilderness Single Point slings.... Pretty simple, and bombproof.

Try the ASP, it's an awesome sling.

+1 for ASP

I have tried a few different single point slings  and the Profile Tactical CQ90 is by far and away the very best of all I tried.  I used to think the CQB solutions/Specter MOUT sling was the best until I tried the CQ90.  

With most SP slings I can never get them to fit me right or have the weapon sit exactly where I want it but with the CQ90 the weapon is positioned perfectly and when drawing my secondary weapon the CQ90 flawlessly transitions the carbine to the side wilth zero effort.

I highly recommend trying the CQ90, not only is it an amazing sling but Arin is an awesome guy to deal with.

+1!  I have been using their single point sling for a year or so now and it is very durable.  Only thing I would like to see on the model I have is a stand off adapter, so I could disconnect from the weapon without removing the sling. Overall a great rig though.

Specter HSTS - all you need, and the price is right.

The Wilderness offers an add on piece that allows you to do just that... SPQD

I bought one and played around with it, but found it interfered with my thumb when operating the selector switch, and went back to just the sling.

a Ginormous +1 for the ASP sling. the ASP is the best sling if seen and extremely comfortable to wear. I suggest you check it out. It is not very expensive at all and if you dont like it(which i highly doubt you will) you didnt blow your wallet. I recomend it over anything else.

Not to take away from all the fine single point slings just discussed, but I looked at a bunch of designs and then just made my own from extra climbing gear I had.  It works great and is very strong.  Just a suggestion as it cost me very little to build (~$6.00).

The SpecOps Enforcer CQB came with my Armalite and I like it.  It's very comfterable with the padded belt and the rifle sits nicely where ever you want it, front or back.  I haven't used an other single points to compair it to but I thought I'd throw it out there as another option.

I really want to find this sling...Can anyone help me?  I can't search the archive.  It was from less than a year ago.  Really cool sling that he invented, and started to sell.

Thanks in advance

I use the one Treetop pictured.  I cut the extra part off so there is just one hole to put your arm through in a hurry.  I dislike the model that disconnects fromthe rifle as with the buckle as it makes the rifle hang too low.

I also have a ZM bungee that is nice but the bungee is annoying at times.

I had a Troy and hated it.  The pad is really annoying.

My comments are on the second page.  I don't think there is currently a better single point sling available.

Cool, glad to see the folks over-seas have access to top notch gear as well.  

Although I would assume purchasing a ~$35 sling from Denmark would be cost prohibitive due to shipping and duties.

He he, we got the opposite problem over here - $2500 for an Armalite M15A4
