Default Help me choose a sling for my Sig 556r

I have not run a tactical rifle course before and need to get squared away with a sling before signing up for one. The Sig 556 has two attachment points built in and HK style snaps work best. I am a big guy so I need one with plenty of room for adjustment. I don't know the advantages or disadvantages of 1, 2, or 3 point slings. I do want a wide strap for comfort.

Thanks

How about a nice 2-point? There are many manufacturers out there and prices vary. I use a 3-point on a Benelli M4 and a 2-point on an AR. Both are from Specter Gear.

Magpul has a sling that can transition from single to 2-point that you might want to check out.

I don't like single-point at all.

I know I'm digging up and old tread, however I was wondering if you have found a single point sling option for you Sig 556r yet. I would be interested in a single point idea for mine. I have the side folder stock with the small HK sltyle sling attachment.

I like the MS3 sling from Magpul, it can be used as a single or 2 point sling, and the "claws" have the ability to be locked closed.

Mr T,

Here is a link to a company who makes their own sling, he is a member here and goes by RMTactical. I have used his stuff before and he is a great guy to deal with.

Another vote for the MS3. Tactical Link also makes a really nice one that's similar, albeit more expensive.

I use the Savvysniper sniper sling easy and fast for my rem700. I'm looking to run the spec ops master blaster in the 3rd link for either an ar build or the ak build I need to finish. Just choose one that will work for what you need it for. I always use the acronym K.I.S.S when I have a hard time making decisions.

I also think you can order any savvysniper product at the gunstore on trop.They might have them in stock. I just ordered mine through the savvy site via email.
