Purpose(s)? All kinds of slings out there... one-point, two-point, three-point. Any good suggestions will need to take into account intended usage.

VCAS padded or a vtac

I'm partial to the Emdom Gunslinger.

ETA: probably will be going with a simple Israeli style sling on the next build.

That makes three of us.

But don't get the Multicam one......

The material is different and the pad feels like cheap egg crate foam. I could understand the nylon being different, but the foam variance I don't get. I stick with my black and coyote ones.

Black, not multicam.

I have an Magpul MS3, and it is really nice (I only use it in 2pt mode). I want to try the VCAS, VTAC, and any other good two point. I hate three point & 1 point slings.

I have one on my AR and 20" 590A1.

Will have one on the current AR build as well.

Seat belt sling, wish I could remember what brand mine is, but its 1"nylon to 2" seat belt. Soft and flexible without the thickness of pad.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 11:06:31 AM EST
V-TAC or V-CAS either one is a good sling.

if V-TAC get your sling from LaRue it comes with the swivels.

I have one of each, Both use the same logic. Both differ in Execution.
I tend to prefer the V-TAC though.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 11:07:02 AM EST
I have a Troy single point which is awesome for retainment (and keeping some weight out of your arms carrying the gun) but the gun is far too free to swing around if you don't have a hand on it.


I really like my SO's Magpul MS3 because you can use it like a one point or two point.

+ The little doohickey they sell that puts a QD socket on the strap, if you use QD sling attachment. I can readily swap from 2 to 1 point configurations.

near perfekt.

Easily adjusted, no slip.

But I suppose, it´s much too little "tacticool".

Body shape and arm length play a big part in sling choice....

then you have to decide or figure out what works best for you...

single, double or triple point slings...

Specter 3-Point. They make more than one model, but I'm not sure which one I have. It's pretty simple, US-made with a release buckle.

Came to post this.



No tier one operator experience on my end .. just took it hog hunting, liked the feel, better than a few other brands.

I was issued a Blue Force single-point sling and liked it (was only able to use it on various ranges since I ended up not deploying). It came with a caribiner to attach to the back of your MTV molly loops, and a wire loop to thread through a single-point sling adapter, or you could just remove the sliding buttstock, and slip it over the lower receiver extension and replace the buttstock and it worked just as well.

I had an extra, and gave it to a friend of mine who works state department low pro security missions in Afghanistan as a contractor, and he loves it. Most of the fellas I talk to that do a lot of riding in vehicles seem to have high praise for single-point slings.

The tag imprinted on the inside of the sling is marked "P /N: Special 0814", so I don't know if it's a regular product, discontinued, or what the deal is.

Made my own with an Alice pack strap adjuster, nylon webbing, a couple push button QD swivels and one of those Viking QD things that goes on the strap. Can be used as 2 point or 1 point and works great, most expensive part was the Viking thingy, total cost was less than 40 bucks.

ETA: you can sort of see it in this pic.

This! Was wondering if anyone would post it.

Patrol Sling

Anything else feels flimsy to me (and I've tried a bunch)

ETA:

I used a modified Spec-Ops MAMBA on deployment and it worked very well. The patrol sling is essentially the same but wider tubular webbing. Still has the band for stretch and quick length adjustment.

May not be what these fools call tier 1 but it's K.I.S.S.
Link Posted: 10/21/2013 12:15:52 PM EST
I'm sure I'll get made fun of but, I was always was a fan of the specter gear SOP deployment sling....not super highspeed but it made it through two combat deployments in good shape and if you are actually going to be wearing the rifle A LOT, walking around with it, and trying to use your hands while you wear it....I never found anything better.

I have the Basic Carry Sling on one of my rifles, and this sling on another. Both are great, but have their pros and cons. I'll give a slight edge to the Wilderness Tac sling, since its easier to use as a shooting sling.

I use Rooster Slings almost exclusively, on ARs, FALs, ect.

That's the Emdom Gunslinger. Discontinued, unfortunately. REALLY comfortable and convertible sling.

Lately I've used the Huskey Amentum Slider Sling.

Here
Here
Or here

Someone needs to come out with a 2" seatbelt sling. That was the most comfortable sling I've ever used.

Also Troy used to make a nice padded sling. I liked the way is adjusted and located the padding so it didn't slide around. Noe sure they're still made, though.
