    SA-80 Sling on AR-15

    Just incase anyone was interested.
    This is my SA-80 sling on my AR-15.

    Piece of bungee cord tied to the end makes it easy to stow the sling by wrapping it around the stock. This is usually how I carry my rifle.
    From this point on you'll have to excuse my horrible selfies.

    2-Point configuration:

    "Backpack" style. I have carried animals like this, with the deer over the top of the rifle. Very comfortable, only it gets your rifle covered in shit. But oh well. Obviously you can do the straps up abit tighter and get the rifle sitting higher on your shoulders.

    Interesting.
    Not the normal sort of bathroom selfie but much more educational

    That looks more like it in 3 point set up.

    3 point slings were very popular with the MP5. People tried to continue their use as the MP5 was replaced by the M4 by most users. Most people quickly realized that they were unsuitable.

    Then it was the single point. Everybody had to have one of those.

    Then it was back to the 2 point, which is where it all began. Quick adjust 2 point slings are IMHO the only significantly worthwhile advancement in slings since we got tired of carrying rifles "at the trail".

    Ching slings are an interesting modification of a 2 point. Even have one on my scout, where they belong.

    Slings are like everything though, personal preference.

    Yeah, I suppose you're right.

    I have a 2 point quick adjust on my scout rifle.

    Pretty sweet rifle. What kind of velocity do you get from the tube. I have a spare barrel which I am thinking of trimming to 11.5"

    I don't know. I've never chronographed it. Enough that it still effectively kills things.

    How heavy is your AR? Is the thin sling OK to carry all day with it?
