    Tips on a quality loop sling

    I'm keen to track down a good modern loop sling.

    Have been looking at the 'rifles only' sling but damn it costs a bit to get here from the US.

    Any ideas on what i could run?

    Im using it for practical/PRS style competition so I'm not too concerned about weight

    Cheers!

    I have a Rifle's only Carbine sling, you can use the loop created by the buckle to cinch down above you bicep and use it as a loop sling (as shown in his videos) to be honest I don't like that sling.
    I can do the same thing with a Magpul MS3 which is a lot nicer and easier to find in NZ. Its not a full on shooting loop sling but can be adjusted to provide good shooting support.

    I don’t pretend to know why and what you are after. Have you looked at Target Species in Auckland.
    Importing slings from Europe.

    Are you talking about 3 gun type practical competition shooting.

    have you looked at Twin Needle, they have a range of hunting and military style 1 and 2 point slings.

    Both slings I referred to are 2 point slings.
    have a look at this video at 4.30 to see what I am talking about, wrong sort of rifle but you get the idea.
