    Cool... I never thought of using those ALICE pack adjusters on a sling. I'll have to buy some and play around with them.

    Just built two of these today. One for my Tavor and one for my Colt AR. I like them. Cheap and easy to build. Not bad for less than $20 each. I wished I had ordered enough to make them for all my Rifles.

    Thanks again for posting the Video and links to the supply's!

    Here is a good way to attach the Vtac Sling or any sling with a snap hook to the back of a AR with adjustable stock. Gaberiel42 sent me some photos of different ways and one of his suggestion had something like this in the photo below. So off to Lowes and town today, and found these at the Key Making Station at Lowes. They work awesome on the Magpul Sliding Stocks on my AR's. And they are less than $2 apiece. I am really liking the adjustability of the Vtac Slings.

    So far the two I built are working flawlessly! And I sure liked the price as well!

    I used to have one of those cable doo-dads on my laptop case; I found that it liked to periodically unscrew itself. That's not so bad if the only thing it's holding is an ID tag, but I'd hate to drop my AR because of it. I thought about dropping a bit of solder in the end, but not before the cable wore in two, so I don't know how well it would've worked.
