    Default Slings

    I need several slings. I've purchased in the past, 1-, 2-, and 3-point slings but nothing has been comfortable or practical. What slings do you all use and what do you recommend?

    Thanks

    I?m a two-point kind of guy and I like the Magpul MS-1. I?ve used the Vickers in the past but prefer the Magpul.

    People say nothing is impossible but I do nothing every day.

    I love Vickers on my AR's due to quick transitions for me. It clears well for me when engaging with sidearm. CPR (as Hoser said) works great for me on long rifle platforms. Carries very nice and I don't adjust straps/buckles once I'm dialed in.

    Vickers.

    If you run QD's, you can add an IWC 2 to 1 point triglide if you desire.

    I wish they made one with an anti-slip strip on the padded model for use on a hunting rifle.

    I just got a Viking Tactics VTAC ultralight padded hunting sling that has an anti-slip pad that I hope works out.

    VTAC has some new ultralight slings with hypalon end straps that are worth a look. That said, the Vickers has an advantage in that it doesn't have a free tail and excess strap is always captive.

    Vickers padded is the only thing I've used for years now: https://www.blueforcegear.com/padded-vickers-sling

    Easily adjustable. Comfortable.
