The single point sling has become extremely popular with tactical shooters. It provides the shooter with the ability to transition from strong side to weak side without sling interference. The Wilderness Single Point Sling With HK Style Snap Hook not only fills the single point sling mission requirement, but also provides two quick methods to connect the weapon to the shooter. The first being the HK style quick clip that attaches directly to the sling attachment mounted to the weapon and the other being a fast tech quick release buckle positioned just above the quick clip. This set up allows the shooter to quickly disengage the weapon if a weapons retention issue should arise. The Wilderness Single Point Sling With HK Style Snap Hook will fit the AR-15 series of weapons as well as Tactical Shotguns.
The Single Point Sling With HK Style Quick Clip can be used in the tactical ready position and off shoulder use.
In the tactical ready mode for a right-handed shooter, the webbing is over the top of the right shoulder and supporting the weight of the rifle. It passes around the back and under the left armpit to the forend of the gun where it is attached to the slider buckle. When properly adjusted, the butt of the rifle should sit just below the right shoulder at about mid-chest level. The butt of the weapon should rest naturally in the shoulder pocket when the weapon is brought up on target. When released, the rifle hangs vertically almost in the center of the user with the muzzle aimed straight, or slightly angled to the ground. This allows you to use your hands without losing control or access to your primary weapon and makes operations such as transitioning to a secondary weapon, opening doors or check a map (just to name a few) significantly easier.
Like all Wilderness Tactical products, this sling is manufactured to exceptionally high standards of design and construction from the finest materials available. Giles uses 1.25" treated, extra heavy duty black nylon webbing (supports weight much better than 1" material) and black low-reflective polymer hardware.
The Giles webbing is much more rigid than typical cheap webbing. It holds its form well when getting into or out of the sling (much like leather), and holds up much better under rough field conditions than soft, shapeless webbing. Giles pays more to use the best materials, but Giles doesn't think you would want it any other way. As always, connections are multi-stitched and back stitched.
