    You really don't want a single point.

    What do you use your rifle for? Have you ever trained with a one point sling? Do you know how to properly install and stake an endplate? Is the rattling from the attachment point going to cause you to come back on Glocktalk and vent that its too noisy and that you want to take it off? (It doesn't rattle if the sling is on....)

    The ASAP is great for a short fighting rifle. Transitioning from strong to weak side shooting positions is effortless and with the MS2 you can unhook it from one point and transition to 2 point. (Assuming you get a front sling adaptor [Magpul RSA for example])


    If I were you however, I would get a simple 2 point, like the BFG VCAS sling and use that in combination with your CTR stock. Your spikes is a 16" or 14.5" barrel correct?


    ...and yes I own both, but I much prefer a thicker 2 point like the VCAS for heavier/longer rifles or something that I'll be carrying for more than a few hours than a one point attached to the ASAP.

    I use a Vickers sling without the Fastex buckle.

    I opted for the aluminum slide.

    I have it mounted right in front of the reciever on the left side, I use the Blue Force Gear aluminum sling mount. It's a hunk of aluminum with a screw through it.

    My rear mount is a QD swivel on the right side of the stock. This is important because mounting to the right side makes transitioning to my left hand very easy. I don't even have to get my left arm out of the sling. Just loosen the sling and transition.

    First question to ask yourself when it comes to sling selection is, what are you going to use the rifle for?

    For most uses a two point sling is best.

    Here is a setup I use.

    [​IMG]

    I used a MI sling adapter for the rail and inserted a QD sling swivel in the stock. The sling is a Blue Force 2-pt. I got from BCM.

    Congratulations.

    Again, What are you using the rifle for?

    If you are hunting or carrying the rifle for very long a one point will is not the best choice.

    As stated unless you are kicking doors and never need your hands for any thing else stay clear of a single point. That said you can still put a 2 point sling using that mount point and a forward mount point. I have done this and it probably is marginally less stable across the back but across the front and at the ready it works just as well if not better.

    Having carried an M4 for endless hours upon hours with 2, 3 and 1 point slings...

    Get a quick-adjust two point.

    Both the Vickers VCAS and Viking Tactics VTAC (the LaRue is a variant of this) are excellent.

    I have both, for most wear, i prefer the VTAC design.

    For working in/around vehicles, buildings, conducting long foot movements with a ruck, urban warfare, or just standing, the VTAC (padded model preferably unless you live in armor like i did) is about the best there is.

    Both the VCAS and VTAC were designed by Delta Force members, I'm quite sure they know more about slings and rifles than all of us put together.

    This thread is the epitome of why I don't even try. I went months without trying to help people on this forum, and I think it will be months before I do so again.

    You have people with tons of experience in real situations telling you what is the best sling to get, and you get the absolute worst sling there is.

    3 points were cool, but its not 1999 anymore. There is nothing a 3 point does that a two point doesn't do equally as well.

    Whatever. I hope your sling gives you many happy years of dragging your muzzle in the dirt and getting tangled up. Then when you buy a $50 sling it will in fact have cost $80 because you didn't want to listen the first time.
