Riflecraft Introduces The RS-3: A Cross-Body Sling For Marksmen

    I am not someone who is very concerned with gear. My main rifle is close to bone stock, besides the optic, and is only “blinged out” with a USGI web sling. My Glock uses the much-maligned stock sights, because those work fine for me. I generally look at small products like slings and lubricants that claim to offer real improvement with a healthy dose of skepticism. What I have works, and I don’t generally feel the need to change it much.

    So it’s an uncommon feeling for me when I find a sling that makes me think: “That looks like a really good idea!” The new Riflecraft RS-3 tactical sling does, though. Company owner Todd explains the sling and its features in the video embedded below:

    Todd is an exhaustive marksman; he records his efforts to improve practical riflery on his blog, Art of The Rifle, which I read on a regular basis. When my SO needed a sling for her new CZ 527, we bought a Riflecraft sling, and she couldn’t be happier with the arrangement (and I admit I feel a little jealous next to her on the range, with my duct-taped, tattered USGI sling). Todd’s slings are well-designed, and very well-made. Like me, you might be happy with just a cotton USGI sling, but it’s hard not to be impressed with a product of great effort and attention to detail like a Riflecraft sling.

    More information on what led Todd to create the RS-3 sling is available at his blog, here and here.
