M4 Sling Suggestions


Recommended Posts

I recently encountered this same question. I decided on the Vickers padded cobra sling from Blue Force Gear, about $105.00. I special ordered 2 through Brownells for about $82 each, with LE discount and SHOT SHOW COUPON CODE LA1, add'l 10% off. The sling is made from 1 1/4 wide webbing but the M4 has a 1" sling loop in the PG stock and 1 1/4 on the front. I removed the front snap ring and twisted the sling mount to the left, for a right handed operator. I tried to remove the rear mount so I could open it up to accept a 1 1/4 sling, its impossible-don't try. Anyway I ordered the GG&G rear sling mount, http://www.gggaz.com/index.php?id=80&parents=153,172

If it fits great, winning combo. $110 later Im happy.

Needcash, I also went with this sling http://www.blueforcegear.com/product.cfm?type=cat&cat_id=&prod_id=135 in black, I had no problem pushing the 1 1/4 strap through the stock PG sling mount, was a little tight but with a little patience no problem.

 

I am not crazy about the GG&G mount don't like the taste of sling while aiming LOL.

 

I am going to move the rear sling to outside right mount on pistol grip for better transition, I am right handed shooter.

I wont use it very much, so any thoughts on the specter line? or the wilderness line?

 

I use Specter Gear slings on all my long guns

 

I use their Benelli sling on my M4

but instead of using their rear attachment strap to attach to the buttstock sling loop, I use their buttstock shell carrier as my rear attachment point

What seems to be the standard in a two or three point sling for the M4? Something that will utilize the factory attachments and wont roll over on the user.

I posted some scans @ my Home Page. The Sling System I use is Functional and will not break the Bank. I still do not know how to place a scan on one of these forums.

I had a Urban ERT but sold it with a firearm as a complete kit awhile back.

 

I really like having QDs, preferably flush whenever possible, on my firearms. For that reason I use a Vicker's Padded and a recently got the Magpul MS3 I think, QD on each end.... I haven't ran with the magpul yet but it seems like a great unit as well. The one I have is not padded.
