Sling and associated attachments for AR

JKPJKP Senior MemberPosts: 2,330 Senior Member
I'm putting together a three gun style AR. Want a two point sling.

I've got a few slings but have never really had a need to tote an AR much so haven't really put a lot of thought or use into an AR sling.

The rifle will have an ambi sling attachment where the receiver and buffer tube connect. Key mod hand guard.

Thoughts on the sling and best way to attach to the rifle? I like the function of the HK style clips but wonder if they are too noisy?

    Missile/Hi Speed tape worked to dampen the noise in the Army on the 'Battle Rattle'.....................our slings were just black issue webbing, probably the same they made the belts outta for our fatigue britches.

    Two point UNpadded VTAC or Vickers Blue Force w/ QD attachments.

    Flexible and quick adjustments. To attach the sling to the rail quiteca few companies make a Key Mod QD mount that you can install along the rail where you like it most.

    I like the padded V-Tac with HK hooks. They rattle some, but they still rock
