They get caught on everything! They can also interfere with the operation of the carbine. They are as bad of an idea as extended latches on charging handles.

It all depends on what you want to use the gun for. From a tactical standpoint 3pt are dangerous junk in my opinion, I dont want anything pulling on the front of the gun and mostly dont want anythig in the way of the mag well. Seen slings get loaded with mag changes.

I like V Tac mounted on the rear of the stock and castle nut nothing infront of the mag well

Stay away from 3 points. You will end up entangled more than shooting. Combine that, and the ability to bust yourself in the genitals and you would have what I would envision with that OSS sling.

I use a mil surplus GI web sling on my AR. It cost me all of 12 dollars. I marked it for prone and sitting just like the one I was issued back in the day.

I have a Magpul MS3 Single Point/ two point sling. I like it so far.

Re: What sling for new Ar-15

Three points never stay adjusted right on fixed buttstocks, and worse on adjustable.

I use a rail mounted sling loop on my forend, for my front attachment, and a loop plate under the castle nut, for my two point setup. Sort of a flexible cross between a two point and a single point. I use this for full time carry.

On the range, shooting positions where a sling is used either leather NM or web NM. nearly as good as a bipod once you get it figured out. A hell of a lot cheaper, too!
