  • US military issue slings

    Hey all,

    Got a quick question for our current/former service members. What is the issue sling for our M16s and M4s? I imagine that many of them are privately acquired, but is there an actual military-issue sling for these weapons? Thanks!

    The ones I've used have been a plain jane type. I've had both cotton and nylon - prefer the cotton as it allows for a better hold when carrying or firing the weapon.

    I've never been in a combat arms unit - so those that need something better probably get issued something better.
