I am looking for cheap slings that could be used on a wide variety of rifles. I see a lot of AK/SKS slings online. How good are those as generic slings? Are they long enough and strong enough for longer rifles?
Also found this cotton sling from Widener's:

Issued AK slings have a spring clip on the end that may not work with the sling swivels of most rifles. They're also noisy unless you go to some effort to cover the metal parts with something soft. On the other hand, they are VERY strong; you could probably attach one to a tree and swing from it.
I personally have an Uncle Mike's Realtree sling on my AK. :D
I went with the East German grey sling from Cope's. As said, it jangles and rattles, but it fulfills its purpose. I am also a fan of neutral and black on a gun, so the grey was also a matter of preference, too.
