Taking it a step further from their MS2 and MS3 designs, MagPul has introduced the MS1. The MS1 by itself is tailor-built piece of webbing that interfaces with multiple adapter types offered by MagPul. With the multiple adapter options (QD, Paraclip, MS3/MS4, and others), the operator can tailor their sling to their mission, creating either a 1-point or 2-point system.
The base sling is built around the new MS1 slider that allows the operator the change the length with no loops, tails, or potential snag hazards. The 1-1/4″ wide webbing is NIR and wear resistant while remaining “anti-chafe for user comfort.”
For further details on how the system works, MagPul worked with Brownells to create an instructional video on the MS1’s functions and adaptability:
MagPul claims that the MS1 has been tested to “thousands of cycles in wet, dry, and sandy conditions” under lab conditions (not to mention field testing). Also, the MS1 is rated to handle static loads of 300 lbs. past 72 hours. The entire sling is made in the United States; retail pricing for the base MS1 is $34.95 with adapters ranging from $9.95 to $24.95.
