What to look for when picking your first tactical sling or AR-15 sling or best rifle sling for your new rifle. Gun owners are not just a little opinionated about issues and topics around AR-15 Slings, AR-15′s specifically, and guns generally.
Rather than add another opionated voice to a well covered topic, lets just keep it simple” is probably a better way to go.
What should a rifle sling do for your AR-15 or M4, and how should it best do it?
It needs to bear the weight of your rifle with a full magazine, accessories etc...
The main purpose of of a rifle sling is just that, to allow you to SLING your weapon in a way that allows you maximum mobility, maximum enhancement of a snap to site line, and maximum comfort during the time you have your weapon slung.
Get a rifle sling with 1.25 inch webbing, rather than 1.00 inch webbing. Over a day in the field, that little .25 of an inch makes a big difference in
weight bearing comfort. There’s just no sense using 1 inch webbing on an tactical rifle sling. Quality 1.25 inch Slings can be had for a pretty decent price.
It should always be useful, and never something that finds you saying “I wish this darn sling wasn’t in my way!”
Use a 2 point sling that has the versatility of making rabid length adjustment, and is suited to as many of your tactical or hunting conditions as is possible. What are your needs today? Are you needing a CQB (Close Quarter Battle) sling? Or, will you be doing a lot of hiking and game tracking? A good AR-15 best rifle sling or Rifle Sling does both.
It should have the flexibility to adjust it specifically for your rifle, body type, and shooting style...
You should have a lot of adjustment possibilities, so you can keep the weapon from hanging too low, beating you up during movement, overall comfort, etc...
