    What is the best single point sling for an AR15? I am going to try that style. I really like the VTAC padded 2 point slings in the 2 point configuration.

    If you like the VTAC, take a look at the Magpul MS2 - same concept as the VTAC; but easily converts to a single point sling as well.

    However, keep in mind it is not padded and in fact, it tends to place the weight on an evern narrower section than the unpadded VTAC.

    Thanks guys. My favorite sling is the VTAC 2 point padded sling. I am hoping to find a single point sling that is just as comfortable and easy to use as the VTAC.
    I am thinking about the Magpul sling. Any more suggestions?

    I have been using the Blackhawk Single Point Storm sling on my carbine with great success for a few years now. I particularly like it because both sides are constructed of 1.25" bungee. This provides a very comfortable symmetrical flex of up to 4 inches. Single point slings with only one side of bungee will flex asymmetrically, which I find quite disconcerting and uncomfortable.

    I'm running an MS2 on my SBR. It's great for weak side transitions. Not so great for comfort. The strap is far too narrow in my opinion. Also, mine has a rough edge on the side that contacts my neck. No way to fix that without rethreading the whole thing.

    I use a Tri-Tech Tactical, a Stack Delta II. My whole squad has them, and they've held up through six months in Iraq with zero failures or fraying.

    I could be biased, as I know the owner, and he kicked down slings and pistol leashes for the whole squad, and the bill said simply "Thanks for your service, come home safe". Over a grand out of his own pocket, and all he asked was that we have a beer with him when we get back.

    Good gear, and good people.
