Decent price for top quality.

Awards Showcase

Armalite sells a heavy nylon sling with the same weave pattern as the old GI web sling. Our top Service Rifle shooters in TX, all High Masters, use these web slings. Accomplishments at Perry last year; Winner Presidents Hundred, Elihu Root National Record, Soldier of Marathon (6 man civilian) National record, smashed the old record that stood since 95 by 32 points. Beat the Army AMU.

Yes, it's intended for an AR at 54" long but you can trim it and leather punch new holes if the excess slop gets in the way. I have one and have trimmed it for my M1A to 50 inches. Delightful sling.

Regards,
Badger

Gentlemen, The fact of the matter is that sling choice is mostly personal preference. It is wise to try various slings and go with what works for you. It is true that most top shooters use M1907 slings but, as Bamban, noted some very accomplished shooters also use web slings. I would suggest avoiding the old VN era nylon web slings (also known as the "seat belt" slings) since they are very slick. The cotton or the later course weave nylon slings (as supplied to the Marine Corps) are better choices. Rick

I use an Andy's Leather "Rhodesian Sling" that I'm happy with. For me though the "best" sling is the one I'm most familiar with.

Maybe this question sounds weird to some of you but could someone give me more information on whether a rifle sling is prohibited to export because of ITAR due it is/or isn't a rifle part. I've had a bad experience with ITAR before. I want to order an Turner National Match Service Rifle All Weather Sling for my M1A. I am 6"4. Any recommendation on length?

Hi Folks, As mentioned, a personal thing. My personal choice is a T.A.B. Gear Elite sling.
