    i see what your getting at now alright, does this kind of thing happen often with new gear out of curiousity?

    just go back to your BQ and say

    My belt only had the openings for the frog(I think that what the spikey thing is called) on the top. The stiffer the material the better, things are less likely to fall apart. Keep an eye out for the PLCE manual (somebody is bound to have it), It is very helpful putting the PLCE together for the first time. Then you throw it in a corner and never take it apart again.

    Not a big fan of webbing/PLCE. Never seem to be comfortable in it not matter what way I rearrange and secure it.
    As for accuracy, presumably the missile carries MRVs with terminal phase sensors and guidance.

    This webbing, apparently, is all the rage with the Brits at the moment....

    And judging by that hip pad, it's probably very comfy to wear...

    looks comfy alright.... i think the israelis do something similiar.

    i see mr. protac is selling "desert webbing" on that site.
    The people of England have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiqués are belated, insincere, incomplete.....It is a disgrace to our imperial record, and may soon be too inflamed for any ordinary cure.We are to-day not far from a disaster.

    found this sling when flicking around some sites. seems simple and easy to use, cheap also.

    somebody might find it useful if looking for different sling for tactics, etc.

    found on SORD website. an australian webbing manufacturer.

    X Ray this may be a better idea

    and it looks fairly similar to the issue sling

    tried something like that for a few exercises before (borrowed off another guy who bought from mr. protac). but i found that the quick release buckle got caught up around the cocking handle a lot and the part of the sling that runs between the sling swivels, along the body of the rifle, tended to catch in my webbing and jacket. went back to issue sling then.

    the concept of the 1 point or 3 point sling is a good idea though. i find the issue a bit useless. usually wadi it to a jacket pocket on exercises and just carry the rifle. works far easier for me.

    the pro tac one

    was actually very good- i remember when they came out first

    but they were a bot complicated to use

    i have one of the one of the above and i also have the attachable clips which make

    putting it on and off a doddle

    it is excellent for exercises but the dogs testes for ov erseas - standing on CPs

    or on CIT's

    i agree they'd be useful for CPs and CIT. much more comfy than the issue.

    The British issue SA80 sling, similar to the above, is an excellent piece of kit. Once you know how to assemble it properly Get a good set of instructions (I learned how to put it together from A Soldier's Pocketbook) for it and you'll never have a problem with it. Lets you sling the rifle tight to your body similar to the issue sling, and then by releasing the quick release buckle the sling loosens (doesn't fall off, just loosens) and turns into a 3 point sling. Or you can sling it over your back with one strap on each shoulder, if you like. The only possible complaint about it is as X-RayOne said, you have to push it to the side to cock the weapon. Oh, and make sure you get a Brit issue one and not a webtex copy.

    Flecktarn does them for £7.50 used. Their GPMG slings (the Brit issue ones) are pretty cool too.

    some of artkis stuff is shite as well

    Yeah hes a grand bloke, his shop is the only really decent surplus shop in the republic that i've been in. Kind of place where you can see and touch the stuff that you would normally have to buy off the net.
