    I recently took a college class at Barksdale AFB and when I passed the front gate I noticed the guy with the M4 had a pretty cool setup complete with an interesting sling. The sling lets the gun rest across the front of there chest, muzzle down and stock up near the shoulder. To get to fire position all that is needed to to grab the muzzle end, bring the gun to a shouldered and ready to fire position, and start shooting. Apparently the sling does not interfere with this motion.

    Does anyone anyone have any info on these types of slings and where they can be found??

    My nephew, currently in the Army, started out with a sling that went across one shoulder and held the carbine at an angle muzzle down to the left across his chest and basically allowed him to cary at the ready hands free.

    A little later he told me he switched to one that simply hung from the epaulet strap on top of the shoulder straight down to the butt stock. The gun hangs at his right arm pit.

    I can see this working with the light M4, but I wonder if he's going to have to do something else when he gets to Iraq. He'll be carrying an M14.

    There are a bunch of places making them now. It's a single-point sling that attaches just behind the lower receiver with a burnsed loop attachment point. Daniel Defense is the loop I have with a Spectre sling.

    Blackhawk is NOT the only company that makes tactical slings. I would say that Specter Gear (www.spectergear.com) makes some of the better ones. The sling you saw is the 3-Point Sling design, good for full size long-arms. The other one mentioned in this thread is the 1-Point Sling design in which the sling attaches to a single point on the weapon, and the weapon hangs under your armpit, muzzle pointed straight down at the deck. The 1-Point sling is better for carbines or sub-machineguns (smaller size). So check out www.spectergear.com and look at their selection of slings and other tactical accessories. They make 3-Point and 1-Point slings for a wide variety of popular weapons. Hope that helped! ;)

    I have a Viking Tactics on my Daewoo. The feature I like is that I can instantly adjust the length on it.
