What people are saying about the Magpul Sling
Magpul MS3 Gen2 Multi-Mission Sling
I love this Magpul Sling. Beefy construction without being too bulky. You know this rifle sling will last based on the feel and look of it. Easy to go from 1-point to 2-point. Easy to adjust. Clamps are solid. I plan on getting the QD version of this (MS4) for one of my builds and also getting another one (MS3) in gray for my other build.
Extremely nice rifle sling
I love this thing. I have mine hooked to two quick detach loops, and it has worked flawlessly. It took me a few minutes to figure it out because I'm so used to a silent sling, but once I did, it became my favorite. And item perfectly matches my stealth gray furniture.
Magpul MS3 Multi-Mission Sling
This item was on backorder, finally got it, and found it to be adequate, but felt it was quite overpriced for a sling. I didn't find it to be all that comfortable in either position. It did seem to be a AR-15 sling that would hold up well under any weather conditions without wearing out, so I would give it an A for durability.
Magpul MS3 G2 Sling
This Magpul sling is a great product. I purchased this because it can easily be removed and used on any weapon I have. Well constructed from quality materials. The paraclips are heavy-duty and can be locked closed so they won't open. Easily adjusted to the length you want. This sling has an attachment point, so it can be used as a single point sling if you wish. After all the research I did compare price, quality, and what you get, I will repurchase this Magpul sling.
Excellent sling for AK/AR Rifle!
This rifle sling is excellent for any rifle that's going to be treated like a tool and ran hard. It can take the abuse because of how tough Magpul makes this sling. They only use the best materials in their products, and this sling is no exception! This AR-15 sling is on the heavy side so I would not recommend on a lightweight build or a hunting rifle, but excellent on a more tactical, battle-ready rifle.
Great sling...great price!
I purchased this as part of my first build on a recommendation from a friend and multiple positive reviews. I haven't had a chance to test it out during a live fire, but initial fitting and practice drills proved smooth. Very durable and functional fit/finish. QD attachments connect with a reassuring snap.
MS4 Gen2 Sling
It's built solidly; it's not too heavy, loosening and tightening is cake, the material isn't abrasive, so it doesn't bother your neck/shoulder, there isn't one part of this Magpul sling that looks or feels cheap. BUT, this is the first sling I have ever purchased. It's the second sling I have ever owned. The first being the sling that came with my M91/30. There are a lot of great reviews online, which helped me in making my decision.
Magpul MS4 QD sling Gen 2
The Magpul sling is very well made with robust materials and quality manufacturing. It is a comfort to wear and allows for versatility inherent in its design. If you want a single point AR-15 sling or a two-point, you're in luck; it's BOTH! I use this sling for my AR-15, and it's straightforward switching back and forth from single to two-point. The ease of adjustment is also a plus, making it lose or tighter is a breeze. Long story short, if you're looking for a versatile, well made and affordable sling, look no further this is the one for you.
Magpul MS3 Single QD Gen 2 Sling
This is another outstanding Magpul AR accessory. It is exceptionally well made. I installed it on an M4 carbine that had a QD mount in the buttstock. I also installed a Magpul RSA rail mount on the top forward rail for the front attachment point. The rifle sling installed in seconds. I am using it as a two-point sling for stability in shooting, but, with a mid-mount, I can easily swap over to a single-point configuration. It is a quality sling that is easily adaptable to multiple missions.
