Your choices (in descending order of desireability) are: 1: CQB Solutions. 2: CQB Solutions. 3: CQB Solutions. 4: Something else. Luck, SD

Oh come on SD!!!! How about a sling from the people that invented the real-deal 3 point sling, The Wilderness. Everything else, including CQB, is just a copy. And has to pay to be a copy!! YMMV Monty

You will not find a more durable sling than the Giles 3 point from The Wilderness. That said, CQB Solutions stuff good to go, and I wouldnt hesitate to use it.

[b]Oh come on SD!!!! How about a sling from the people that invented the real-deal 3 point sling, The Wilderness. Everything else, including CQB, is just a copy[/b] Whoa, Nelly!! Giles Stock will be the first to tell you that his design is a revision of the ancient Heckler & Koch design. That having been said, I will stipulate that Giles is one of the great contributors to the shooting arts and that the Wilderness products are of the very highest quality. I live fairly close to their outlet and have several of their slings myself. My transition to CQB Sol. was motivated by my desire to be able to go to my weak shoulder without having to perform an act which resembles an albatross trying to land in a rock pile. Luck, SD

True, true, it is an evolution really of the old HK rig. But, it's really like comparing apples and oranges....or maybe it's like saying "here's a Ford Taurus, and here's a Ford Excursion." For transition to off-shoulder, why not the Single Point Sling, from The Wilderness??? Monty

I used to use Giles 3 point slings on my AR's but for the last couple years I have been a single point kind of guy. Easy transition to weak side shoulder and easy access to bolt release. I have a Giles single point. One thing I will tell you about Giles is that while I agree they are the most robust sling out there they tend to be very hard on the neck if you're just wearing a T-shirt. When I attend shooting classes I generally am forced to wear a mock turtle neck or some type of collared shirt to avoid my single point Giles from abraiding my neck. The CQB solutions slings are much softer and I would dare say easier on the neck. Whether or not they will last as long as a Giles I don't know. The reason I put up with the abrasion thing is that someone much smarter than me seems to think that the more rigid Giles slings spread the weight of the weapon more evenly across your shoulder. For a while I actually ran my 3 point Giles sling utilizing my single point adapter. I mounted the front of the sling to the sight tower with a sling thing and the rear of the sling was mounted to my single point adapter. This works out pretty well and you can transition to the weak side without having to release any kind of buckle. The downside is that you can't carry "Patrol" style. Frankly I don't think there is a perfect sling out there. Just pick whatever seems to work best for you and by all means train with it.

I hated that sling so much I bought three of them! Kinda sideways I know, but it's getting to be a long night. One on my Colt AR, one on my shottie, and one on my wife's DPMS AR
