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.
