    I am looking for a good bungee style single point sling for my AR 15. One that will mount behind the rear hand grip where the collapsible stock goes in.

    You might also see what kind of sling connectors your AR has. That will be a factor in whether you need adaptors for your sling system. Also, out of curiousity, why a one point sling? As a matter of person of preference I prefer a two point sling to hang horizontally. One points can rack you good and proper if you have them hanging in front of you and you have to take off running hands free. With a two point you have the option of 45 degree frontal carry, and slinging the weapon system behind you in you are in a cuffing situation.

    Take a picture of where you intend to mount it for us.

    I have some ideas for you.

    We had some training today and I find it hard to sling the gun behind me. My current sling goes from the butt stock to the front sight, gets hung up on my belt. Many of the SWAT guys have the single point and swear by them.

    I went with the Blackhawk SWIFT three point sling on my AR. Little complicated but very secure.

    Yes, the two point slide behind does take some time and practice. But, IMHO it is worth it. It used to get hung up on my belt too when I first started practicing with it. The key is to give it some slack and pull it outwards before slinging it behind you.

    We've been using the Blackhawk Storm single point sling. $20. Seems decent enough to last. Don't know why we are a single point department. Guess last range master decided that when we got rifles. For simplicity, I built all my lowers set up for single point as well so that my training doesn't get mixed up.

    I hear you. That is why I prefer my personal pump action shotguns to have ghost rings.

    Magpul ASAP and MS3 if you aren't totally tied to a bungee.

    I have a Northeast Tactical bungee on my shotgun.

    I don't like bungee slings on an AR. I want stability with this platform. It works good on my 870 because of the 870s purpose as a breaching gun.

    Found mine here: http://www.savvysniper.com/

    The model I purchased (QUAD sling) allows for single point and dual point as well. I have no complaints about mine.

    This is what I have... it was given to me, and I'm still trying to figure it out! That front quick-release clip is a bit confusing for a sling noob like me.

    The only thing I don't like so day is that the forward strap is in a spot where impacts the switch on my side-mounted light, and turns it on sometimes when it's slung up front. A minor issue that would probably be the case with any 2- or 3-point setup, with the way I have my light.

    I am lost. You are using a stock with a quick connect or not?

    Personally I don't like a single point on a AR either. If you have a light SBR then yes.

    I bought a Tactical Tailor single point and after getting hit the in the junk a couple times and getting banged in the knees picked up a VTAC 5.11 2 point padded sling.

    I'm with Cochese on this one; I have the Magpul setup and it works well for me.

    There is a YouTube video out there by blackhawk that makes it much easier.
