Hi guys. I am looking into a single point sling for my new SBR and had a few questions.

First, what are the advantages of a single point sling?

How do you attach the sling to your body?

What happens to the rifle when you lean over? Do you hold it to your body with one hand?


I would love to see some single point set-ups, especially in use/attached to a person.

Please post pics

The advantage is that it is highly manuverable. You give up some comfort and stability though. For a rifle class that has lots of transistions to weak side, it will serve you well. For holding the rifle all day long long, day in and day out, a three point may work better for you.

ETA: Get both!

its pretty simple, get some 550 cord and tie it to the buttstock than use a D ring to attach it to your gear, such as IBA or LBV.

That's a Specter MOUT sling on a Midwest Industries adapter. The weapon is at it's natural state of rest in the picture, my hand is just resting on the pistol-grip. It's hard to make out, but the sling just continues under my left armpit and up my back.

They bean you in the man-sack when you transition. 2-point (IDF) or 3-point for me, por favour.

The allow more room on the front end to mount stuff

How do you attach the sling to your body?

? It goes around your body like any other tactical sling

What happens to the rifle when you lean over? Do you hold it to your body with one hand?

it flops alloverthefucking place, when you transition on the move, it flops all overthefucking place, best bet is to sling it off to your weak side/rear

I personally hate things... A good 3-point will offer you more options to carry and will not let the rifle flop alloverthefucking place when you move... If you have gear on, the 2-point "tactical" slings are the ticket as they don't cover up pouches

my opinion, YMMV.. Single points are like the new "fad" there is a specific reason to use one, just like the forward pistol grips

Exactly, and when said object is directed to swing precariously close to my 'SBR', problems ensue.

As gunslinger stated it's awesome for mobility..... you just need too pay attention too your weapons position... or ellllllse ......

Can't really see a 3p' on a commando or anything shorter thou... welp... too each his own i guess...
