How well do you guys think a sling would work with my SP-1? I know there are guns out there that do work well but what about the SP-1?
Let me know if you think it would work good with a sling. I also won't be using a remote line, just the tank on the gun. Thanks.

Really just would get in the way (for me), although its handy in the staging area so you don't have to hold your marker.. Its more how well do you think a sling would work for you?

I am going to IoN 09. I won't have it around me all the time only when I am not in combat, though it will still be on the gun at all times. When I am just walking around and stuff. What I am really asking is whether or not I can trust the sling on my SP-1. Do they do a good job of holding the gun? Because I really don't feel like having my gun falling out of the sling.

Probably one from Spec Ops. I don't want to buy some crappy one.

I dont see why a sling wouldn't work on the SP-1? Question: Does it have a sling mount on the end of the gun? If it does then HELL YEAH!!! :D

There are other manufacturers of slings besides SpecOps.

Anywho, how do you plan to mount the sling? What attachment points do you have in mind? I've always thought a one-point sling attached to the asa would work well.

One point attached to a stock (the collapsing stocks have a slot in them for just such a thing) would work well too.

A sling is nice if you run remote and need access to both hands instead of having them taken up by a marker. They're also pretty decent if you'll be playing in a game with a lot of downtime (that is, when you may have to shoot, but it's not an active problem yet). Otherwise, you're always busy shooting or moving, and a sling isn't as helpful.

Whether or not you should get one is up to you - you know what paintball you plan on doing better than we do.

I don't know if the OP has a stock on his SP-1.

Also, a sling helps maintain a stable shooting platform, depending upon how you use it.

To the OP:

If you have the sling attached to a solid attachment point, your marker won't go anywhere.

Slings are the greatest, I love mine and hate to take the field without it.

Highly recommend this one: http://www.milsimproducts.com/cart.php?tar...95&pageID=0

why dont you just make your own sling? I bet it would be a lot cheaper then buying from some company. I ended up making my own for my a-5. and it costs under 2.00. If you visit walmart go to the camping/hunting section and find some straps get some string and needles and go to town.
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!

Doesn't matter what gun you have, as long as you can hit what you're looking at.

Personally I prefer the one point slings, especially if you are using a vest. Any other sling would just get in the way.
