    Gee, is that called progress?!? Thank you so much for pointing that out... dude.

    FFS, I know that, and I run modern quick adjust slings... dude.
    He said minimalist. The second post down from the OP was showing 550 cord attachment points. I was simply sharing a cheap and minimalist alternative... dude.

    I have gotten by with a combination of paracord and the plain carrying straps that get issued with rifles but anymore I really like the Magpul slings. An MS1 is only $35. And you can always get the extra bits to make it an MS3/4 later if you want.
    Does anyone like pineapple on their pizza guns?

    No, a quick adjust 2-point sling is pretty much perfect for most guns.

    If one uses a double qd endplate Or has QD on the stock and QD end plate, it's pretty easy to make a 'pseudo' single-point sling, by simply moving the forward QD rearward.

    Rob_S and I are in agreement here, QDs are the best form of sling attachment. And having 3-4 spots to plug the sling in is ideal.

    I prefer having QD points on the left side of the handguard just forward of the delta ring, on the backplate and on the right rear of the buttstock. I also put IWC 2 to 1 slides on my Boonie Packer 2P-ATQ slings to allow for quick changeover to a single point.

    I’m a big fan of MOE handguards. Years back I posted a tutorial on Arfcom about how to add a IWC QD cup to the rear of a MOE handguard, and amazingly it’s still up:

    I just ordered one of these, I'm a big fan of the SOB B-sling's 'pull back to tighten' and 'push forward to loosen' so thought I would try one. It also comes set up so my wife won't have to sew, I generally buy SOB mash hooks and have her sew on a QD.

    Rob s mentioned that he doesn't like loose tails. I tend to agree. Once I decided I was no longer in a position to operate operationally it was pretty easy to adjust lengths of my slings and snip and seal the ends to get rid of most of the tail. Always leave some tail in case your weight rebounds, but you don't need a lot of tail. (tail jokes are too obvious, so please, don't)

    I have the more expensive MS4 from Magpul, but otherwise I'd be tempted to go with the MS1 or the Mastermind from Mack if I wanted something minimalist.
    ...and just like that, I woke up one morning and the America I knew and loved was gone.

    I really wish that when they went from the MS1 to the MS1 QDM they'd do more than just add two QD swivels for the $40 increase. I like the Magpul swivels and all, I just wish they sewed them in for all that extra money and ditched all that extra hardware.
    Does the above offend? If you have paid to be here, you can click here to put it in context.

    I got a few of these recently and they've worked well with some QD's installed.

    Think for yourself. Question authority.

    I don't know the ins and outs of their product line. The MS4 is the only one I've owned and it works fine for my purposes. Probably more than I required, but I liked having options.
