GG and G Wilderness CAR-15/M16 Type 2 Tri-Glide Front Sling

This sling is a two point sling manufactured specifically for the ribbed collapsible stocks similar to those manufactured by Rock River. This sling does not need a rear sling attachment. The sling is attached to the collapsible stock by a wrapped nylon web attachment with keeper that uses the rear sling slot of the collapsible stock.The sling is attached at the front by a Tri-Glide web attachment with keeper that can be used with any GG&G 1 1/4 inch rectangular front sling attachment or M4 military style barrel mounted front sling attachment.

It can be used in the tactical ready position, in an over the shoulder carry or in a back pack sling mode.

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. The webbing attached to the forend passes back through this slider, then passes through another at the rear stock attachment point or at the back of the receiver before going up over the shoulder. 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 against the user's chest 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.
