Re: What sling for new Ar-15

My current carbine sling is a 2 inch wide TAPCO. It is a modular 2point/singlepoint sling. It was on the lower end of the price scale. I like it a lot. For fulltime use a 7lb carbine gets heavy, the 2" strap spreads the load out so its a lot more tolerable.

For my full size ARs I prefer a NM web sling, like the USMC uses. Quick adjust clamp with a Jhook.

Walmart slings work, but come up short even on carbines. They can work in a pinch, for the 12 bucks. Untill you can find the one you want.

Blue Force Vickers Padded.

It's without a doubt the best I've tried.

This is a very good choice, I don't have the padded version. Also of some note and I do like it a bit more, the VTAC 2 point. Please head my warning and stay away from 3 point and single point slings.

+1 on the V-TAC 2point for a run and gun.
