That sling looks good to go, I havent used that particular one first hand but, if I can recomend one to you. the best single point sling that I have used is csmgear.com 's single pont sling. This thing is solid and it has sweet mounting hardware. A ton of the marines, at Pendelton use this sling. Medic Mike is the owner of CSMGEAR, and he runs a semi-custom shot in Temecula California. Check out his site, check out the sling.

Stickman ought to be chiming in here soon with his take on the ASP sling. One inch round tubing, very comfortable, etc, etc. Plus Jason (owner/designer) is just absolutely awesome to deal with.

Thanks for the replies!!!
Any thoughts on the Single with elastic vs without?? Any benefits to either one of them over the other?

Thanks again!!

I'm thinking I would not want elastic on a single point. I have toyed with two point slings with elastic (bungee, actually) ends and they were OK, but I just cannot see the point of elastic on a single point sling IF IT IS MADE WELL AND USED CORRECTLY.

While the elastic may add to the transition from shoulder to shoulder, I wouldn't want to drop my weapon and reach for my sidearm just to have the weapon come back up and hit me in the face or bounce down and take out the boys. I know that may be far-fetched, and I simply point that out for a bit of humor, but always remember...Murphy was an optimist.

I like my Blue Force Simple Sling. It is a very simple nylon single point, but it is very high quality. I need to put a quick cisco on it, but for now, it works great.

I will agree, Jason emailed me after the sale to make sure I received my order. Then emailed me back thanking me for letting him know that I got it.

Just trying it on, I can see why using tubing is nice. It's strong as hell and it just glides along clothing.

I also bought the ASP sling, just need a rifle to mount it to.

I have one and think it's the best single-point ever made. I've tried all the big ones incl. CQB Sol., ZM (another bungee), etc. The bungee is just right. Heavy enough so it's not "bouncy". Light enough to absorb shock and allow the weapon to be extended away from the body for weak-side or prone positions. The wide webbing is very comfortable and it's built like a tank. I even use it with my FAL.

I would recommend the trigger snap, not the snap hook.

I've met the owner. He did a custom size sling for me. Very nice guy--you won't go wrong.

Why not the snap hook?


Thanks for the replies!! May have to purchase several and see what I like...

I just ordered an ASP sling from TAG. You can't beat the price after shipping: $33. I might order a few more if it is as cool as it seems. I will try it on my 50 Beowulf and my MP5K clone.

I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

I emailed Jason last night about an item he currently has in prototype form. Anyway, I emailed him just before 2300 last night, and when I got to work this morning and checked my email, his reply was waiting for me. What is really amazing is that I don't even own an ASP yet. I'm kinda waiting on this new item, and he has been incredible about it all. Hell, I'm already a loyal customer. [gazes into crystal ball]"I see many dollars being sent to Mr. Trusty."

LOL

+1 for Jason and Tag Industries. You can't find a better guy to do business with.

Why not the snap hook?


The original design we used a trigger snap as the connector. The idea was the swivel will limit excess force on the conector when transitioning by allow the connector to be able to move around. This has worked well. After a few requests from military and police departments, we started to offer the snap hook. The primary issue was accidental opening of the trigger snap when transitioning. We have solved that problem with an elastic cover for the trigger snap. I still prefer the trigger snap for a connector.
