The use of a sling as a stabilization aid is becoming something of a lost art. That may start to change now that Magpul is rolling out the RLS – a simple, affordable shooting sling that functions somewhat like a Rhodesian sling but with the benefits of some modern materals.
Building on the heritage and proven performance of Magpul’s MS Sling series, the Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is a durable, lightweight, and affordable shooting aid and retention device. What at first appears to be an unassuming weapon sling is quickly transformed by the end user into a rock-solid, adjustable, isometrically-tensioned shooting aid. Combining the best features of Rhodesian and 1907 match-style slings, the RLS is born of Magpul’s famous proprietary nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware.
The American-made Magpul RLS combines legendary Magpul innovation, quality, and design into a simple and effective shooting aid for less money than many slings that merely carry a rifle. Available in BLK or COY.

KGB (Kraft Gun Builders) has teamed up with Elevenmile Arms to create some AK grips that manage to look equally at home on a minimalist traditional AK or an ultra-modern, kitted up AK. The grip is KGB’s MG47 – a machined aluminum grip with styling queues taken from triangle side folding stocks. Then Elevenmile Arms created the Bakelite and Russian Plum finishes.
These appear to be a special project and they are unavailable at this time. Stay tuned for additional details.
The ESD Sling, from Edgar Sherman Design, is a lightweight, adaptable 2-point sling with quick-adjust functionality like many other slings on the market. However, the ESD Sling has a few features that set it apart.
At first glance, the ESD Sling has a ladder lock slider for the quick-adjust feature that is similar to many slings. However, ESD has figured out a way to use the slider so that it operates quickly and smoothly in both directions (both tightening and loosening) while most slings with similar hardware only work well for tightening and bind when the user tries to loosen. They also attach an ITW Zipline Orbit pull that makes the slider easy to grasp.
The ESD Sling also boasts a number of attachment options. The user can spec their ESD Sling with sewn in QD swivels, HK style hooks, loose ends for adding your own hardware, or paracord loops. The paracord option allows the user to tie their sling into their rifle with any length of paracord they choose.
The design has no loose ends and can be folded into its own elastic keeper for storage. Pulling the sling allows it to deploy from its folded position to its full length in a snap.
