Default Single point sling for AR pistol?

I'm looking for a sling for my AR pistol, I was wondering if anyone used a 1 pt. sling and if there are any issues they've encountered?

Also, is there a specific 1 pt sling people prefer if they do use one with their AR pistol?

I really like the TROY single-point sling, as seen here on my AK pistol. The only other single-point I tried was a no-name bungee one and I don't think I'll every use a bungee one again - sold that nut whacker quickly!

I use an MS2. I had a KZ single point froom Botach for awhile that also worked really well. Cost is $10, is well made, and comfortable.

I prefer the Magpul MS2/ASAP combo.

I can have it snug tight on my back when it's in the 2-pt configuration.

I perfer troy as well. I have the magpul asap setup as well but I do not like the fact that the ms2 is thin and has a tendancy to double up on it sellf and roll creating a uncomfortable tug on your shoulder/neck especially if your rifle is heavy.

I know you said for a pistol but the troy sling is GTG in my book

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be sure to look up the Troy single point.

Does Troy offer the 1 pt sling without the bungee?

I have a blackhawk bungee with a midwest castlenut mount on my rifle. I dont like it for a carbine length, but it is of great quality. Take this into account, hang an AR on a single point in front of you and kneel down to pick something up. Your muzzle is now a post hole digger. I don't know how that would work with the AR pistol though.

Thanks! It's a Midwest Industries AK rail - more details can be found here: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=228209

(and it will fit any standard AK, so I'm pretty sure you're good to go)

...now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

I have a bungie single point sling that I picked up from Midway for around $10. It works for carrying the pistol, but is useless for helping to steady it during shooting.
