    Magpul Sling

    Just been doing a bit of surfin around, and thought I would look at getting me a Magpul MS3 sling.
    Now magpul website got it here SLINGS & SLING MOUNTS - MS3 - Multi-Mission Sling

    Sweet no problems, so I go for a web search locally for it and get alot of results but I have never seen pricing fluctuate
    so much, am I missing something ? Price ranging from trademe at $39 to sportsways to around $100 bucks
    Or go fishpond and get it for like 69 bucks The trademe one price wise makes me think fake .

    So what's the go anyone if they all legit at stuff ?

    Beavis explain PTS to an old fellah?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Sorry Beavis you lost me PTS ?

    Normally if the pricing isn't so far apart it's just a matter of where you choose to buy from but with them being all over the board
    I'm trying to see if I'm missing something .

    They probably will hold up to moderate use, don't get too wound up if your rig ends up crashing into the dirt though.
