I am installing side flush cups on my rifles to make sling carry more comfortable and that made me realize I don’t like the slings I’ve used. I have several different kinds and I have been disappointed with all of them for some reason or other. I’m wanting a sling that is light, non bulky, that stays on your shoulder, and stays where you adjust it to be. Is that too much to ask of a sling?

What are you guys using and why do you think it is the best?

I like the Tab Gear sling too but it might be too bulky and heavy for what your looking for.

For a minimalist approach you may want to consider just buying web strap material, the flush cup swivels, and a few extra pieces of hardware and make your own.

I like biathlon slings for big walking days, but my favourite all around sling is tab gear prs sling. I don’t even use it in matches but it’s great for hunting
I have a Magpul tactical sling. I suppose it’s supposed to accomplish the same function as the Tab gear, but it is frustrating as hell. The sling has some kind of quick adjust feature that is constantly letting our slack causing the rifle to droop down. I don’t think it’s too bulky so maybe the Tab gear would be better

The tab gear has quick adjust but it doesn’t release you can cinch it tight and it stays. It also has a buckle you can release to get out of the sling quickly. I like it because it’s so multipurpose and can be used to help steady your shooting position

I was looking for the same thing last week. I just ordered the quake claw with flush cups, it seems pretty good but I haven't tested it in the field yet. I had one before with the swivels and liked it so I would assume this will be the same.

I have made several slings out of paracord also and they do work pretty well when custom lengths are needed. I use several of the Uncle Mike's with the nylon flex that aren't terrible. If you want one to keep your rifle where you put it and make packing easy try the double shoulder sling that is sold in the Long Range online store. I have really liked it for packing my heavier rifles and not using a backpack.

I've got a web sling from rifle craf . Pretty simple but it is great if you like to use the sling as a shooting aid. I have the front look setup to go around my arm and it works great.

There are two companies that make the same thing, they were partners at one time and split. I talked to the original one at one point.
That ultimate gun sling is the best. It seems like there was another company that made the exact same thing too. Cant remember the name of it.

I have a TAB gear as well, its not really light but its tough as nails.

I also use a Magpul MS4 adapter to turn it into a 1 point sling for when I want to have support while keeping the rifle out front in a quick shoot able position.
