    What do you guys recommend? Been looking at the magpul ms4 with the qd's and the ability to run dual or single point but they seem to be out of stock everywhere.

    I use these guys for all my slings now, great product, made in America, comes with a lifetime warranty. What’s not to like? I always love when I can support a local business and get a great product.

    I've got a BFG and a couple 3 Vickers, I like the Vickers better, larger range of adjustment and easier to adjust.

    My BFG push button was $79, but I definitely think it was worth it. Very nice sling.

    Not sure if you have ordered anything yet but I have used the magpul sling and the bfg vickers and liked both. I do advise against single point slings though, they tend to go right between your legs and bounce a lot compared to two point slings.

    I really like my Blue Force Gear sling. Pretty simple, does what I need it to and very well made.

    One of the things I like about my BFG is the material. It's burly and cotton I think.

    It's a grippier texture and stiffer than some smooth nylon slings I have tried. With the smooth thin nylon I just feel like the gun slides around more than it should. Not my preference.

    I plan to order the padded vickers and add push buttons to it. Comes out to $95 but I definitely need a sling for use outside a range session.

    Check out the Custom builder feature on their website. You can spec it out and mix colors and stuff.

    Can't go wrong with the Vickers. I have them on all my ARs, 2 padded & one regular.
