Here’s how to take the sling you get in the package, and add swivels OR thread it through the swivels on your rifle.

NOTE:  Just using some surplus clips for this example… use ANYTHING you want!

ALSO, we used a Canyon Brown sling so you could see the sling part more easily.

You will ALWAYS start and END with the Tri-Glide end of the sling

IMG_3501

First, remove the Tri-Glide

IMG_3502

THIS SLING, has 2 different ends on it.  The loose strap end you see in this image, and the SPEED LOOP (which is built ONTO another Tri-Glide) end, which will become obvious as we continue.

NEXT, we are going to pull the loose strap end THROUGH the SPEED LOOP Tri-Glide – NOTE: Pay attention to how it is threaded… after attaching swivel, it will thread back the EXACT same way.

NOW, you just have one LONG piece of webbing with the SPEED LOOP on one end…

NOTE:  USE a “Circle of Carry” way of looking at the sling and the rifle when they are put together.  The bottom of the rifle, and the “top” of the sling, are how it is going to be carried, and the inside of the sling is where it will make contact with the operator… your SPEED LOOP, will ALWAYS be on the OUTSIDE pointing away from your weapon, for obvious reasons… you can’t very easily operate the SPEED LOOP if is resting against your shoulder on the inside of the sling.

For most folks, the SPEED LOOP END will probably be attached on the forward attachment point, and the Tri-Glide end will be the rear attachment.  But, you may have an operator preference… just feel free to change it according to what works best for you.

OKAY… NOW thread the first swivel onto the webbing, paying attention that you want it to end up once you are done (will depend on the swivel, and where you want the gate or clasp to face.  Your preference)

NOW you will thread the loose end of webbing BACK through the SPEED LOOP

IMG_3511

IMG_3512

IMG_3513

THERE, YOU HAVE IT

IMG_3514

IMG_3515

OKAY, now to attach the loose end – AGAIN, pay close attention to how and where you want your clip or swivel gate to end up… (you can always change things if you don’t like your result, right?)

IMG_3517

IMG_3518

To make it EASIER, pull a big loop out of the Tri-Glide to give you room to work inside the loop

IMG_3519

IMG_3520

Now, just pull you slack out of the Tri-Glide

IMG_3521

THAT’S IT!  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

“Anatomy of the Best AR 15 Sling Money Can Buy”

 

AR-15-sling-1-point-sling

“What is the best AR-15 sling I can put on my AR-15 or M4 Carbine platform?”

Opinions about the answer to that question run the gammit.  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 one more opinionated voice to a well-covered topic, K.I.S.S. is probably a better way to go.

The question is, what should a rifle sling do for your AR-15 or M4, and how should it best do it?

It should bear the weight of your rifle

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.

Go with a 1.25 inch webbing, rather than a 1.00 inch webbing.  Over time, 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.

 

It should always bring UTILITY, and never be something that you find yourself saying “I wish this sling wasn’t in my way!”

Don’t just use a a 2 point sling… use a sling that has versatility and is suited to as many of the tactical or hunting conditions as is possible.  What are you going to be doing today?  Are you needing a CQB (Close Quarter Combat) sling?  Or, will you be doing a lot of hiking and game spotting?  Our Rifle Sling does both.

 

It should have enough adjustment flexibility so you can adjust it 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 your knees during movement, overall comfort, etc…

Our STI 1 point sling lets you add or remove webbing slack at the regular strap buckle, and also give you the ability to make fast slackening or tightening moves, to your specifications, with the sling’s Speed-loop… and do so in moments.

 

It’s functional design should be such that you can safely and effectively use it without fumbles tangles or snags, with a minimum of training.

Making good tactical use of most 3 point slings can be a challenge. There is an excess of inferior webbing that can cause tangles and fumbles. Our sling can give you the versatility and flexibility of most of the tactical functions of a more complicated 3 point sling, and yet the webbing is always under YOUR easy management,  and rapidly convertible into the configuration of your choice.  No more fumbles or tangles. 

 

It should ADD to the utility of your rifles mission intent, not DETRACT from it.

Our sling is design to make your chosen rifle platform an extension of your tactical movement and usage.  You are clear, your rifle is “dialed in” and if need be can be left slung hands free, yet in a moment snapped up to site line aimed and fired, literally in a moment.

Check out our sling and give it a try.  Take the time to play around with the adjustment possibilities.  You’ll see why our type of sling design has come into wide usage from professionals everywhere!
