Magpul – A company that seems set to make anyone that enters a gun store to walk out with at least one of their products.
At only $19.95 the new Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is affordable, and if you don’t already own a sling (or two) you might walk out with this product, or specify it as you order your next budget rifle.
The RLS sling accepts all Magpul 1 ¼” sling accessories as well as most third-party 1 ¼” sling attachments.
Below you can find Magpul’s description and possible usages of the sling:
Building on the heritage and proven performance of Magpul’s MS Sling series, the Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is a durable, lightweight, and affordable shooting aid and retention device. What at first appears to be an unassuming weapon sling is quickly transformed by the end user into a rock-solid, adjustable, isometrically-tensioned shooting aid. Combining the best features of Rhodesian and 1907 match-style slings, the RLS was created with Magpul’s famous proprietary nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware.
As a Standard Weapon Sling
In a retention role, the RLS serves dutifully as an unobtrusive weapon sling and retention device, securely keeping the rifle tucked behind the shoulder.
As a Stabilized Shooting Aid
When called upon, the RLS is rapidly employed with the adjustable forward loop gripping the Rifleman’s support arm, locking in a steady shooting position and firmly planting the rifle butt against the shoulder.
At the core of the RLS lies Magpul’s proprietary chafe-resistant 1 ¼” nylon mesh webbing. Its tubular construction eliminates harsh edges that can rub or snag and provides double layers of cushioned comfort against the end user while shouldered. During employment, the strap’s smooth texture remains comfortable, even when torqued against the user’s arm. Like all Magpul slings, colored webbing is NIR treated to reduce infrared signature.
The Magpul RLS features lightweight reinforced high-strength injection-molded polymer hardware and a proprietary sling keeper that leaves no tails or loose straps, eliminating snag hazards and distractions.
Lightweight and Durable
The Magpul RLS was designed with mobility in mind. At a mere 4.4 oz, the optimized weight of the RLS doesn’t add unnecessary ounces to the rifle and weighs less than many competing slings and straps.
Like all Magpul slings, the RLS has been extensively tested to its limit to ensure reliability and performance in wet, dry, and sandy conditions, to include load and drop testing. It’s been hiked with, biked with, swam, climbed, hunted and shot (a lot) within a variety of field conditions.
The Magpul RLS is Made in the USA and is available in Black or Coyote.
