Sling

I picked up a V-Tac Mk I sling a few weeks ago at a gun show. I've run about 300 rds through the 556 with it attached, and it really helps stablilze the gun when using the Docter sight on top of the ACOG. Quick and easy adjustments. Good quality. I like it mucho. Paid 25 for it, not sure what it would be like. Glad I did though.

I'm using this. I have some different attachment points than what is pictured here. Will post photos if any one is interested.

This is what I too am using. It was a little pricy but very much worth it. Excellent service and shipping, plus a 10% military/law enforcement discount.

Blue Force Gear Sling

I recently purchased a Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Applications Sling,VCAS-125-AA-BK, an HK Sling Hook, P-HK-100, and an Elastic Hook Cover, HC-BK from Blue Force Gear in Georgia. Works great on my SIG 556 and everything is made here in the USA. Purchased all for $60.00 including shipping.

H&K original sling. New for $15 at CDNN. Works great on my classic.
there was only one sling advertised on their website for $14.99 so i ordered that one.
So how is the HK original sling from CDNN? did it fit ok... no issues or extra things needed?

Anyone???
nothing extra needed! did remove two plastic buckles; had to cut off end of sling to get the configuration i wanted. hth

I particularly like the bungies because on long walks in the woods it eases the jolt of the weight.

I tried out one of the Urban slings at a gun show last weekend and it was just what I was looking for. I like the 2" wide strap, it did a much better job at spreading the load than the thinner ones. While it does not have a large amount of elastic material I do think it has enough to absorb the shock.

I would say that before anyone buys one, go to a shop or a show and try out several since I know I was looking at the Magpul one and when I tried it out I was not so happy with they way it rode on me.

I actually just attached the HK original sling to my sig from cdnn. It doesn't work that bad - i wouldn't walk around with it the full day on my shoulder - maybe across the body for longer duration. It's only 1 inch wide - so it does cut in a little. I might go get a shoulder pad that i can slip on it. All-in-all it works well for what i need it for... carrying it from place to place on occasion.

I know I'm digging up a thread from months ago but I wanted to post that I also have this sling and love it. The 2" strap bears the weight very well and is quite comfortable. I saw it demonstrated at a gun show and was quite impressed, bought it that day.

Nothing I've used,and I've used a few (VCAS, GRSC, Blackhawk! CQC &3-pt, original HK 3-pt, etc), beats Viking Tactics' VTAC padded sling.

I have one on just about every rifle I have, from a work M4, which I've carried for upwards of 20 hrs at a stretch, to an Arsenal SLR.

I've talked a lot of folks into trying one and most became converts and the others didn't care what they used.

For my original 556, I used a HK snap hook for the attachment up front and a quick detach socket at the rear (with a VLTOR Emod Stock). If I had a SIG 556 Classic, I'd use another HK sling hook on the back with loop of 550 cord through the stock's hole.
