LaRue Tactical has announced their now carrying the Armageddon Gear Carbine Sling. It is described as giving the operator the “…ultimate utility in allowing the rifle to be ready for action without sling adjustment while being securely held against the body for hands-free tasks and freedom of movement. This sling provides the ultimate in weapon stability by pulling the rifle back into the shoulder creating a very stable shooting position.”

The Armageddon Gear Carbine Sling has a simple, tubular design and is currently available only in Coyote Brown. It has stretch points on the load-bearing and stress locations, a quick release mechanism and lifetime warranty.

Granted,  a sling is a sling is a sling (though some are substantially more complicated than others) but this one does have a certain utilitarian appeal.

If you’re not familiar with them, Armageddon Gear is online here.

Looked to me like he was fighting it. Gee… Why do my rounds keep pulling to the left?

I transitioned from a two point to a three point and currently have a single point sling. Still not 100% happy.

I miss one thing about my old issued two point sling and that's the ability to use it as a shooting aid. Something not taught much today (maybe sniper schools, don't know if the Marines still teach it). Not talking about the deliberate sling position (detach stock end of sling, form a loop, give it a half twist and wrap around above/below your bisep). No time to use that practically outside of a static shooting location you don't expect to move out of quickly. I'm more focused on the hasty sling position.

This sling might work but I've never tried shooting with a sling that has elastic in it. I would think that's less stable. I do like the enhanced transition capability of modern slings but miss that shooting aid of the old school two point sling.

With so much elastic, I'd like to see someone run while the rifle is slung. I can just imagine it now: boing-boing-boing-boing…or better yet the butt "boinging" up and smacking you under the chin. I wish slings had 30-day trials.
