For 1907 slings the Ron Brown sling from Creedmoor is the best value/quality available. Used to be a Turner fan but they are thinner leather and stretch after a max of two years. I feel the price isn't justified in comparison.
Les Tam are rated as the best, but he has over a 3 month waitlist. At a recent match another competitor had a Les Tam sling and we were comparing them side by side. The Ron Brown was identical in leather, hardware, and design.
Turner "All Weather" synthetic slings seem to have a pretty good reputation for durability. Strength and non-rotting are the selling points. I found the sling somewhat difficult to adjust easily due to the "sticky non-slip" nature of the material. Also, they don't mark the holes with numbers for repeatable adjustments.
Over-all, if you just need a sling, you can't go wrong with a canvas web sling. Inexpensive and easily adjustable. And, it just looks right!
