Jarhead, the ZM weapons sling is really nice.  I've been looking all over the place for them.

There is no way that I would ever buy that nor anything else from that company as none of their products contain the word "tactical".

I don't doubt it. I'm not downing the ZM product because I know nothing about it. I'm justing offering what I know about singlepoint slings.

Honestly I was going to go the Giles sling route within the week until I saw this post.  I've been looking all over the place for this sling.

What's the attraction? The bungee material itself, or is there more to it?

From the [url=www.zmweapons.com/accessories.htm]ZM Accessory Page[/url], it looks like it's not really a singlepoint sling, and that it's set up for the attachment points on their weapon only...not that it couldn't be customized, I guess.

Just the way it fits.  It's Bungee so it snaps up against you when you transition to a handgun, but it doesn't bounce when you run.

grrr, I'm gonna hafta look at Ronin45's sling again.  It's similar but both ends end up at a "hook" that attatches to a single point sling plate.  I'm hoping the one Matrix is talking about is the one I'm looking for.

If you go to the ZM accessory page I linked above, it shows you that they only sell one sling, and the pic Matrix linked is just a close up of the buckle and ends of the sling in the pic I posted.

Maybe Ronin45 did some custom work to his and hooked it up to a sling attachment plate?

Beats me, I'll have to ask him.  I'll let you now what I find out.

I've seen the bungee sling at a three gun match.  IPSC shooter Todd Jarret represents ZM and said he designed the sling.  Don't know the accuracy of that, but it looked like a pretty slick set up.  As I recall it was a loop that attaches at a single point on the weapon.  He was selling them at the match, but didn't have any spare cash handy.  I think it would be worth a try at that price.

I guess you can order them direct from ZM Weapons.  The one on the website shows the two point system...but the picture in Combat Handguns August 2002, pg. 90, shows the one point system...looks like just a wrap around velcro piece on the forend of the buttstock...it doesn't look like there needs to be any modification done to the firearm for the one pictured in the magazine.

Matrix, was the one shown in the magazine mounted on an AR or on a ZM?

I am testing out some of ZM Weapons single point bungee slings. We have not had a problem transitioning since the bungee material can be stretched to allow clearance of the buttstock to the other shoulder. It beats having to unsnap a buckle in order to get the necessary slack. The slings come in 3 sizes S,M,L. For the average sized individual, I would recommend the M, since it will allow you to adjust the length for wear over a ballistic vest as well as without. The sling also allows you to transition to sidearm easily by rotating the weapon to the side. The bungee sling keeps the weapon tight to your body and when brought up to the high carry will provide enough resistance to lock your weapon into your shoulder without sacrificing maneuverability.

No, I do not work for ZM, but I do test his stuff out.

His single point slings are not on his website yet, but are available for purchase if you give him a call.

Tell him CPT B. sent you.

Have you spoken to the folks at Z-M? Is that a modification of their standard bungee sling? I still only see the standard two attachment point sling on their website.

Jarhead,

    The new slings are not on the website.  The single point is a modification of the standard bungee sling.  Its joined at a single point with a rotating snap fastner that can be attached to a hard mount such as this [img]http://www.shooterstore.com/dpmsinc/images/Cs-adp.jpg[/img] or it can be fastened utilizing the soft mount as shown here [url]http://www.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=273634[/url]
