I've got a 16" CAR w/A2 stock, obviously set up to accept the standard sling configuration. Knowing "0" about slings, I'm looking for some input from you all. I'm looking for a sling arrangement to use both front and ready', and for general carry (read 'over shoulder', 'behind the back' style.) What are my options?

Ditto. Get a CQB Solutions SOP Sling and never look back. You'll love it.

I tell you what. I had a CQB sling myself and thought it was the greatest till. I got one of the IDF Israeli slings. I am telling you this is the most comfortable, strongest made and overall coolest sling. It even has a ear protection pouch. Here is the green one mounted on my M4: [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/pb97d865b5feef4bd41c3ee080ea7afdc/fbe86669.jpg[/img] You can buy them here: [url]www.zahal.org[/url] [url]http://www.israelmilitary.com/imp/show_product.php?product_id=36284[/url]

Giles 3 point from The Wilderness. There is no tougher, longer lasting sling.

Hmmm, That is a good sling indeed.

You can't go wrong with the CQB Solutions SOP sling. Very comfortable and easy to use. Although I have never used one, I have heard good things of the Israeli slings too. Sarge

OK....Thanks guys. Now, a couple of follow-up questions....... M4 - Was that the standard IDF, or one of the jazzed up models? Also, how would you attach it to an A2 stock? Lumpy - Got a hot link or web address where I might look at the Giles? notack / Strazz - Re: CQB...To ERB, or not to ERB....That is the question. (Also, what is "TRB"? I didn't see a definition.) I appreciate all the input. Jav.

[url]www.thewilderness.com[/url] They have versions to adapt to whatever buttstock and swivel set up you have. I like their heavier webbing. Its THE most durable, and its stiffer, which doesnt allow it to focus the weight of your rifle.

You can also run the Wilderness as a single point sling...

Kevin, who made that mid-length upper?
Link Posted: 8/1/2003 9:29:03 AM EDT
Lumpy, This one is a vanilla Armalite.

Its the Golani(SF) Sling. But many many other units use it(probably cause its a damn good sling) You can either use the clips that come with it, oe the paracors that comes with it. I use the para cord because it makes the sling a whole lot more flexible while fast and heavy movement.

KevinB, I must say I really like that CADPAT? camo you got there.

I've been running the Sling Systems [url]http://www.slingsystem.com/sspromo.html[/url] sling for a few years now. Our SWAT team and our Narc unit purchased them as well. So far we are very happy with them. They come with attachments for the M4 and A2 stocks. Here are some pics of how the sling attaches to the rifle.

It does not alow you to transition to your week side. Go with the one they call the Sling System TM sling.

I have the single point Giles that Kevin mentioned on my carbine. One of the best things about it to me is that is completely out of the way of the bolt release, unlike 3 points.
Link Posted: 8/2/2003 7:35:49 AM EDT
I have to agree with luckystiff. I've been using the sling system on patrol for 4 years and really like it. It's easy to transition to left hand shooting and lefties and righties can use the same sling.

Just Got a CQB Solutions SOP Sling from MSTN and I'll have to say it is superior to ANY 3 point tac sling I've handled/sampled.
Link Posted: 8/5/2003 10:07:20 PM EDT
go with the CQB solutions sling and you won't be disappointed. It easily allows you to switch to left handed shooting if you need to cut the pie that way!
Link Posted: 8/6/2003 6:17:17 PM EDT
You guys are killin' me.....had to order one of each (Giles 3Pt. / CQB SOP)....still probably won't be able to make up my mind, but thanks for pointing me in the right direction......................Loser buys dinner!!
