AR sling

Recommended Posts

2 point quick adjust such as a Magpul MS1, VTAC, or Blue Force Gear VCAS.

The sling is the “holster” for your rifle.

If you are doing anything other than bench shooting you should have a sling. 

Personally, a sling is the first accessory I put on an AR. I think it is the most important add-on, followed by a white light and then an optic.

Avoid single-point slings. They blow goats.

Thanks for the input guys, I’ll look into a 2 point adjustable

I like the Israeli one to be honest.  It's a great sling, quiet, has a pouch I put cleaning/batteries in and when off prone, it's like being up against a wall!  Plus, the added benny is that if you want to see what it looks like on a rifle, odds are you will get a hot Israeli chick in the pic too....just sayin...lol

I use single point. i'm trying to make myself feel comfortable with a 2 point, but I just can't do it. 


I can help you feel comfortable with 2 point.. 

next time at the range work up your heart rate a little.. run your rifle mag till empty.. then drop your long gun so its hanging just by the sling.. transition to your handgun.. now sprint as fast as you can.. 

you are welcome..

I also only use a single point sling on the small guns, namely my jersey-legal AR pistols. It's a homemade one made from 1.25" webbing.

For my match ARs, I use this sling from Creedmoor.

For the rest of my ARs I generally run this military web sling. You can use it as a hasty sling, or as a 1903-style rifle sling. Makes hitting your target easier than not having it.

I have a Magpul MS4 dual QD sling that allows me to switch between single and two point. As for mounts, my one rifle has a A2 rifle stock so I used a Troy M16A4 mount in the rear and a Magpul RSA QD pic rail attachment in the front. I picked the Troy because I use PRI gas buster charging handles and this one didn't interfere with it. My other rifle is a S&W M&P Sport II with the fake complaint carbine stock, so I used a TangoDown Carbine Sling Mount, because every other mount I saw required removing the stock, which is impossible with the complaint design S&W uses. The TangoDown mount is two pieces and is also able to work with the gas buster handle. I put a Magpul MOE SL M-Lock hand guard in this rifle, so I used their M-Lock QD Sling Mount. Believe it or not, getting this setup done on these rifles required lots of time, and some trial and error. A bunch of other mounts were bought and returned because they wouldn't work with my setups. I am happy with this setup as it is now, and I am glad I can use one sling with both rifles, and have pretty much identical functions on each.

  • 67 How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"

    1. 1. How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"


      • Very, (Do not want to pay for slide cutting, Looks cool, etc.)
      • Neutral (don't have a preference either way)
      • Not at all (not a feature I am looking for).
    2. 2. How much are you willing to pay for "Optics ready"? (i.e. gun is cut for an optic)


      • Up to $50
      • $50 to $100
      • $100 to $200
      • $250 or more
      • None. If it is not standard part of the gun, not willing to pay more for a model with it.
    3. 3. Why are you looking for Optics Ready?


      • Planning on adding optic.
      • Want to have the option just in case
      • n/a
    4. 4. Why do you want to add an optic?


      • Looks cool/tactical or someone told me I should
      • Need it for deteriorating eyesight.
      • To compete in certain gun games (USPSA Carry Optics)
      • Other Reasons

    • So is this another option? https://franklinarmory.com/franklin-armory-xo-26-r2/  
    • I didnt hear what ever came of that...  but here is another  story.  https://www.tngunowners.com/forums/topic/108864-atf-prosecution-for-pistol-as-sbr/page/2/
    • What a country, huh?  Where else can you take something good, declare it as bad, redesign it to be better and not bad and then invent something to reverse the good turning the bad back into something good that was bad and profit off of it?  God bless America.  
    • @Sniper You know that your comparison of me to Gregory "Joey" Johnson is totally bogus and just your inflammatory way to personally attack me without really considering the point(s) I make and respond with an intelligent and articulate comment.  From my previous posts here, anyone can tell that I respect our flag and what it stands for.  I totally disagree with the association of our flag to other issues that Johnson made in his quote that you posted. In a similar fashion, it would be if I compared you to and cited one of the many hateful proclamations made by Richard B. Spencer, the wife-abuser, American neo-Nazi and white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank.  That would be an extreme over reaction and not fair to you, even if you may agree with some of his stated positions.  I really do think we all need to throttle back down the hateful comments.  Yes, I have been guilty of writing some incendiary posts and will try not to make them personal towards other posters and focus on the point I am trying to make.  It is hard not to take criticism personally, but I think that I and all of us should at least try to rise above making negative comments towards each other, ranging from snarky barbs, to petty insults to slanderous and hateful accusations, since they clearly are not productive and just makes things worse on both sides. Also, we are all human with imperfections and histories of decisions and actions performed in the past that we now may regret or would have done differently.  So there really never will be any candidate devoid of flaws or previous bad choices.  Therefore, we all have to make do with whom we feel, moving forward, will have learned from their past successes and failures, and act and perform their duties in the best interest of our country.  We all are free to make that challenging choice and decision ourselves, which of course includes taking a chance and/or leap of faith. That is one of the reasons I am currently leaning towards supporting Joe Biden's candidacy.  Yes, he has had some creepy moments with people and I do wish he could just come out and sincerely apologize for how he treated Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas hearings in the Senate.  Yet, from the current ridiculously large crop of Democrat candidates who have migrated to the far-left, (way too far in my opinion), I think that Biden is the most moderate and acceptable of the bunch. So is it really too much to ask for you and others to accept that there are many folks who really do not like Donald Trump and never have and are seeking a viable alternative candidate to vote for?  You may not agree with us, but that is the beauty of our Constitutional system, 1st Amendment rights, that allows us all to express our different opinions.  But ideally, to do so respectfully.  AVB-AMG
