Good, Basic Sling – Tactical Single-Point Gun Sling - Army Green Reviews

Pros:
-Very simple and easy design.
-Metal clasp seems strong and durable, opens and closes nicely.
-Nylon seems pretty strong and durable. It's that rougher looking fabric, not that smooth shiny seatbelt type.
-Nice elasticity in the bungee part.
Cons:
-A couple of the rings that the strap feeds through are plastic. Plastic can be fine if it's high quality, but I'll bet it's not. I'm slightly worried that in the long run these will break, but as of right now, no complaints.
-The "clasp" is just a little too big to fit into a standard sling swivel stud.
-The way the straps are set up can be troubling. It creates two loops essentially (one main loop, and another created by the excess strap). If you have too much excess strap you can put that one over your head by accident. Just a stupid thing really, no big deal (just like saying your t-shirt has 3 holes).
Other:
-Can't speak for long term durability.
-There are a lot of other really fancy slings out there with only about a million and one straps to pull this, attach that, and this one lets you do a backflip while you're repelling etc etc.... This is a sling, one end attached to your rifle, the other, to you. Done.
Bottomline:
Exactly as expected. Can't beat the price. Good single point sling.
