I saw some pics of some AR-type weapons that had the sling secured by paracord. This was done to make the weapon more user-friendly when slung. Does anyone have any pics of this?

Why not? We used that shit for everything.

I can't do pics, but my M4 has a VCAS attached to the buttstock(LMT SOPMOD) with 550. It keeps the sling and buckles off the top of the stock.

As a radio operator and scout 88-95, we all had our slings customized using 550 cord. You can get pretty creative when you need to.

I've been issued 3-point slings that used similar cord to attach to the front sight post.

I attach mine to the D-ring on my right shoulder of my vest rig.

I use a caribiner and paracord and tie the paracord to the butt-stock, and a caribiner on the d-ring, and a caribiner at the end of the paracord.

When I need to "sling" the rifle behind my back, I use a bungee cord attached to the lower left back of my vest rig. I pull the bungee around the muzzle of the gun, and it stays in place on my back.

When the carbine is not attached to the bungee on my back, it hangs in a nice ready position down off my shoulder.

With a level III vest, and my vest rig attached to my belt with keepers, it is a pretty sweet setup. And the only thing attached to my weapon is a 6 inch piece of para-cord, and a caribiner.

And my long-gun is always GTG on my right shoulder.

We used to get these "top sling" kits that had a metal loop in them. We'd use the metal piece on the front sight and paracord on the collapsable stock.

If you were worried about noise, you could electrical tape or put a piece of paracord on the metal loop, but it tended to melt if you did a lot of FA fire.
