So I purchased a Ruger MPR 5.56 last month and need to get a sling. Rifle has the free-floating handguard with Magpul M-Lok accessory attachment slots. Just looking for a comfortable carry sling, not using for competition/tacticool or anything like that. Looked on interweb and found a dizzy array of options. Suggestions?

Slingster is good

Magpul series is nice

Haleyís

Blue force gear


All of those would be great. I have a magpul that can be either two point or one point and I like it a lot. Going to add a slingster to the mix most likely. Just get good qd hardware

If you are just slinging it over your shoulder then anything you like will work.

I like the adjustable 2-point Vickers Tactical I have. I've used it from Afghanistan to the Panhandle and it does what I need it to do.
