Customer Ratings & Reviews
Great AR 15 Sling - Nice & Thick
When I started getting hot and heavy into two and three gun matches, I decided that I needed to graduate to better and tougher slings. I decided on this sling because I own several other Blackhawk products and love them all. When I placed my order, I decided to go with two of them. I planned to use one for my matches and gave the other one to my zone partner, a SWAT operator. We both began using the slings immediately and loved them. These slings are made from high-quality materials, and I absolutely love the bungee portion of the sling. It helps take away from the weight of my rifle when it's slung up. It also helps take out some of the shocks when bouncing up and down while moving and shooting or running. Adjustments are made very easily. However, it simply will not adjust small enough for the way I like to keep my rifle slung. I like to keep the buttstock of my rifle a little above the largest portion of my chest. Because the sling only allows for it to adjust to a certain point, my rifle seems to hang too low and hits my shins when walking and especially when running. Keep in mind that I am not running anybody's armor when using my sling. My zone partner wears a SWAT heavy vest, and for him, the length is perfect due to the additional area around his torso. He ended up permanently attaching the sling to his heavy vest so that it always stays in place and does not interfere with critical gear. One thing that we both agreed upon was our dislike for the attachment clip that attaches to the sling mounts. Instead of having a latch style, it works by squeezing the center, opening up both sides. Depending on the sling mount, sometimes it can be difficult to attach quickly. The latch style slings are quicker and easier to attach and remove. I think this and adjustment size are the only things that could be improved with this sling. Other than that, this sling is excellent and is comfortable to wear with a heavy rifle for long periods of time. I highly recommend it to anyone needing a seriously tough sling. I would also recommend it to my close friends and family. Get the sling; you will not be disappointed!
Quality Sling as usual from Blackhawk
For me, I can only give it four stars. I want to give it 5. It's a very well made sling, with all the features I could want...except - for my purposes, I would like it to adjust to a slightly smaller size than it does. I am not an operator or LE professional. My AR gets used for 3-gun competition and home defense, so I probably won't be wearing it with a protective vest - maybe a heavy coat if I hunt with it. At it's smallest adjustment, while wearing a t-shirt, the gun hangs just a bit low for my taste, but only by an inch or so. And I'm 5'11" - 200 lbs. Other than that - it's perfect!
I hook this to my Bushmaster I use at work. This sling is KISS simple! Easy to adjust, comfortable to wear, quality materials. The hook has elastic that rolls down over it to stop any rattles. The hook is made with steel so stout that mine ate its way through my steel VLTOR endplate mount point! So I suggest you get some other type of chain hook to add between the sling and rifle. Front, side, back, however you need to carry your rifle at any moment, this sling can do it!
A must for anyone with a AR-15!
Super easy to use/adjust on the fly, and can be adjusted to almost any height person. Easy to push the gun to where ever is most comfortable to you quickly without much effort whether you are carrying as a back up weapon or primary. A REAL no-nonsense sling anyone can use!
tough and adjustable 1-point sling
The Blackhawk Storm is a great 1-point sling for the price does its job, and I like the simplicity of being able to take it off at the buckle without taking the whole strap off. I used it for a two-day qualification class and had no difficulties. tough and adjustable
I use the Blackhawk Storm Sling with my shotgun and AR-15. It isn't the best sling out there but you can't beat it for it's cost. It's strong, reliable, and it works like it should. The quick disconnect buckle is also a convenient feature.
priced right and is built tough
I needed one point sling I can use on both my rifles and shotguns. The Blackhawk Storm is priced right and is built tough. The Storm is simple to grab and go. I will get a few more. In case you do not care for the bungee style this is for you. This is the one you want. Semi-removable for easy removal without pulling it on your head in the heat of the moment material for rebound Bungie for easy adjustment and decent price point.
Good quality sling
Nice sling and works as advertised. It would be even better if it was capable of being adjusted to a smaller size. Overall a good buy.
