Abner Miranda on Single Point Slings

I am generally not a huge fan of single point slings unless they are the convertible type that can be converted to a 2 point sling. However, a video that I watched yesterday has me thinking about single point slings in a different light. I am not going to throw out all my 2 point slings but I might just spend a bit more time with a single point to see what it is all about.

The video was produced by Abner Miranda and in it, he shows techniques that mitigate many of the commonly mentioned shortcomings of single point slings. You can view it below. If you hate single point slings, you might just gain a little appreciation of them. If you already use single point slings, you will pick up a couple of techniques to make living with them easier.

    It is a great video showing how to use a single point sling. I still very much prefer the Vickers two-point slings. Wearing it as a “necklace” is SOP for me when shooting the rifle, and I have plenty of room with the sling to transition to either side, and the design allows it to be quickly cinched up for tight body retention and carry of the firearm.

    I’ve been using single point sling with my RPK and AK for a while now. Only real problem is hanging up on right side mag in chest rig. Sometimes get a good knee smack while walking with RPK, gots a lot of barrel. Linking this vid to a few people for reference.
