Anyone have any recommendations for a tactical sling for an M14/M1A? Aside from the standard straight leather sling.

Thanks-

The standard M14 sling is the same one used with the M1 and later with the M16. Cotton is better than nylon for most uses.

If you desire chest carry, the quick release CQB sling available from Lightfighter (a sponsor here) is a good choice.



Raf-

The CQB sling is exactly the sling I was looking for, thank you for your help!

if you want one sweet piece of leather for it let me be the first to recommend les tam. I ordered 2 slings from him and one sits on my m1a. I believe his email was lestam1@aol.com
Just talking to the guy on the phone let me know I chose the right person to buy it from.
