Hey I wish I could give everyone a T&E, but Papa's gotta feed the hungry mouths! No padded version but there is a section of bungy to reduce the felt weight of your weapon.

We also have a version with QD Swivels if you prefer those. Do you have a QD swivel mount in the front? If so I would recommend the QD swivel version, it's $10 more, but then you eliminate the need to purchase a front sling adapter...works out to be less expensive.

For anyone using the HK snap hook sling, I STRONGLY urge you to use a hard (Non-swivel) front sling loop with this sling. I use the Midwest Industries and it is very good.

Looks like a solid piece of kit. 1st thing i'd do is swap the fast-tech buckle with a cobra buckle. I'm sure most of us have had run-ins with cold weather and broken fast techs

The designer and manufacturer of this sling has a video on his website of him rappelling off a tower using this buckle to suspend him...that being said, it's hard to argue your point metal vs plastic.

Ive been using the Savvy Sniper sling since this thread put me onto it.

I have had two problems with the sling. First, the HK hook failed during a movement when I wasn't holding the rifle in my hands. The rifle took a nose dive in the dirt. Not a happy camper. I used a multitool to straighten the bent part of the hook out, it works but is always threatening to pop off again. I think this is a fault of the hook rather than the sling itself.
In hindsight I would go with the QD mount if I could do it over again.

Second, the adjustment part of the sling, it is a great design with nothing dangling down. However, it doesn't have enough adjustment, I cannot tighten my rifle to my chest. It's always bouncing off me and getting in the way, a constant frustration.

Just my .02c

Arrow,

My brother got me that sling as a pre-deployment gift. Used it at PMT and I am highly impressed! Well done! I am excited to continue beating up the sling downrange.
