Do you know if that comes with QD swivel attachment, or is it attached with loops?

Im still looking, right now the description is all I have to go by.
Yeah I searched the web, turns out it is a 3 point sling. I'm in for one, thanks man!

Real World operations and force-on force training quickly illustrate the need for a sling that allows instant transition from primary side to support side. Simply, if you don’t transition, you take hits. BlackHawk’s R&D team has solved this problem with the introduction of the new Bilateral Carbine Sling.

Check out these features:

• Lightning-fast quick release buckle for instant transition
from primary side to support side. Sling moves freely
throughout any firing position.
• When quick release buckle is deployed, weapon still
hangs parallel in a “single point’ position for instant
access.
• Quick-ditch side release buckle lets the operator dump
the sling in seconds, even with full gear.
• Completely adjustable without disassembly.
• Ambidextrous
• 1 ” soft webbing for comfort and durability.
• Fixed stock weapon? No problem.
• Just add BlackHawk’s 990738BK V-Tac Butt Stock
Attachment and you’re good to go.
• Shotguns also require 70SM01/02 series side plate
adaptor.

I got 3.

One size fits all? Thats a pretty bold claim. I got a couple free pair of 5.11 socks with my boots - their socks run a little small. Ive been buying tac-crap from LAPG for over a year, they have a great return/exchange policy... and living in CA I get my stuff within 1 or 2 days.

I bought two slings, and a V-tac stock adapter in hopes of fitting one to a Mossberg 500 with a Knoxx SpecOps stock, and one to a stock Saiga (hence the V-Tac adapter). Too bad they didn't have any boots in my size. :(

Yea, they had a close out on some M6 and M9 boots from Bates. I ordered it, showed in stock.

They cancelled my order, stating out of stock.

Just sayin', buyer beware.

It sounded like a great deal, I like the boots. My issued Bates boots are really comfortable, so I figured those would be too. And for $10, you can't go wrong (well, evidently you can, if your order is cancelled).

A Backordered closeout item. Heh... that's funny.

Blackhawk seems to be perpetually backordered. I ordered a Knoxx SpecOps stock from them on Jan 4, and I just found out yesterday that it's backordered until the middle of March! (After they sent me an update saying that estimated ship date was 1/04/08)

Oh well, I cant really do anything with the sling without the stock, I suspect, so I'm in no rush.

Ahh... give the little business a break.. they probaby didnt anticipate so many people flooding their little yahoo store with orders. :)

I ordered 2 pairs of boots and the sling. They cancelled one pair of boots and the sling was backordered. Checked my order status here and it says the sling and remaining pair of boots have shipped.

For 20 bucks + shipping, Im not complaining.. Even if the boots and sling are crap, it'd should still be worth it.

Yeah, I ordered 2 slings and some other things, and am still on backorder. In the meantime, I decided I needed an A2 stock sling adapter, and gave them a call and follow up email.

If you paid the $40 price, kneepads are included and Soldier415 will be right over.

That is the correct vid for installing these slings. If you have an A2 stock, you can add the V-tac butt stock attachment, p/n 99073BK, and you won't use the little strap. I added one to my order from LA Police Gear for $8.96. It looks like this: Blackhawk V-Tac Butt Stock Attachment (http://www.lapolicegear.com/blvbustat.html) It should work ok on the SKS too, it will move the sling attach point further back on the stock and not slide around.

The instructions that came with mine were for a different sling, actually several different slings.
