I've been running the VCAS slings since Feb / March of 2006. I have them on ALL of my AR's and Shotguns.

Origionally wrote this in mid-2006, it has been updated a couple times and reposted several times .......... my feelings remain the same on the VCAS:

**********************************************************
Of all the designs that I have used I prefer the Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Applications Sling (VCAS) 2 point over all others.

The easy adjustable 2 point sling (like the Vickers and VTAC) have a combination of the pros of both of the single and 3 point sling, but very few of the "cons" of a single point sling or 3 point sling design.

The thing I like about the Blue Force Gear Vickers (VCAS) sling is the ability of placement on the gun. With a 3 point sling the front attachment is in the area of the front sight post and the rear attachment is on the rear of the stock. With a Single Point sling both the front and rear attachment are at the same location (generally), where the receiver extention (or stock) meets up with the lower receiver.

With the 2 point sling you can use several different location points. For the front attachment if you have a railed handguard you can place the front from as far forward as the front sight post or as far back as the delta ring or anywhere in between. With the rear attachment you can use either a Single Point Sling Plate or can attach it to the buttstock.

I perfer the front attachment of the sling near the delta ring (the location where the LaRue rails have the quick detach sling socket attachment hole) and the rear of the sling attached toward the rear of the buttstock.

The pro's of the Blue Force Gear VCAS sling is when the carbine is in the ready position, the VCAS gives you the freedom of movement of the single point sling, no extra straps to get in the way, doesn't get hung up on gear, etc.


In the down postion the gun lies diagonally across your body just like a 3 point. This makes walking easier, gun doesn't hit the shooter when he transitions to pistol. If performing tasks with your hands you can move the gun to your back and it retains well like a 3 point sling.

The adjustment on the Blue Force Gear VCAS sling is very quick and very easy. This lets the shooter have as much freedom or retention as he needs.

The only con that I have found is it's not as good to transition from one shoulder to the other with the Vickers sling (compared to a single point), but it's much easier than a 3 point.

The Blue Force Gear Vickers (VCAS) sling is the optimum sling for Patrol, SWAT, civilian or competition use in my opinion based on the different sling set ups that I have used over the years.

I've been using the Blue Force Gear VCAS sling on all of my AR's and Benelli shot guns for over 2 years and I haven't found anything that I haven't liked about the Vickers sling yet.



If budget is an issue, take a look at the Blue Force Gear Victory Series VCAS. It's an economy version of the standard VCAS.

***********************************************************************************************

I wrote this back in May 2008, but thought it may have some relevance here:


I was talking to Ashley Burnsed at Blue Force Gear a year or so ago about something unrelated and he asked what I thought of a padded version of his VCAS sling.

At the time I told him in my opinion a padded version was not needed.

A few months ago I tried one and I simply didn't know what I didn't know. I was so impressed with the padded version that I'm in the process of changing ALL of my VCAS slings over to the padded version.

The padded portion of the sling won't chaff exposed skin, it slides over gear more easily (not that I ever had a problem with the standard VCAS, but the padded version slides over gear more easliy), no buckles on the portion of the sling that goes over your shoulder and around your back, etc.

Both the padded and un-padded VCAS slings are awesome, but for me after trying both, I much prefer the padded version.

Never had to shoot with heavy gloves, and never had a problem with tac gloves in regular trigger guards.

Tell me more about that sling. Looks like a single point, but also looks like it can be made into a two point?

Magpul MS2

Black Rifle Forum


from the Magpul website

Quote:
Driven by the operational experience of Magpul Dynamics™ instructors, the MS2™ Multi-Mission Sling System was designed to give a versatile weapon-retention solution for a multitude of tactical environments and missions. As a standalone product, the rapidly-convertible MS2™ allows an operator to leverage the maneuverability of single-point® attachment for direct-action, or two-point attachment for stability. Single-hand adjustments, quick-detach lanyard and positive-locking metal hardware provide flexibility and durability in a truly adaptable sling system.

Used in conjunction with the Magpul® ASAP™ plate (sold separately), the MS2™ enables seamless transitions into an array of shooting positions without getting bound or fouled. The MS2™ concept allows switching from Weapon Shoulder to Reaction Shoulder for shooting around corners, under vehicles, or to minimize exposure. The MS2™ can also increase operator survivability by keeping the weapon in the fight in case of injury to the operator’s shoulder, arm, or hand.

The concept is simple: Your survivability rate dramatically increases if your gear allows you to move freely in a dynamic environment.

Made in USA

Features

Ų Fast transition from Single-Point® to Two-Point configuration
Ų Adjustment Loop for rapidly adding or removing sling tension with a single-hand
Ų Quick-detach lanyard provides emergency weapon release
ŲSling Mounting
o REAR - Works with the MAGPUL® ASAP™ Receiver End Plate for optimal transitioning in Single-Point® mode. Also compatible with most Snap-Loop sling connectors.
o FRONT - Compatible with most Full Sling Swivels/Loops for Two-Point use.

This was my baby the day I bought her. Since then I have added a MagPul CRT Stock, a VTAC padded sling, and 5 more MagPul Mags. I'll take another picture soon.
