    Default Sling for Scorpion Micro

    Hey guys,

    It has been a while, just been super busy with work at the FD and home.

    I bought a Scorpion Micro (the one without the fake suppressor) I have changed out the trigger, charging handle, and grip. I am now debating if I want to add a sling and if so what sling. I plan on concealing it in a bag and I wonder if a sling would just get hung up. I also thought it might be good to be able to have hands free if I need it. I would like to hear thoughts on sling no sling. If so what sling would you recommend?

    Thanks
    Martin

    On some of my smaller guns with slings, Iíve used that neomag sentry strap and have loved it for keeping the sling nice and tight and out of the way until i want it. Something worth looking in to.

    Big o rings, rubber bands, slivers of inner tube (ranger bands I think?), Or Velcro cable wraps (for organizing computer cables) would all work for managing the sling until it is needed. All of those options will tear away when the sling is needed.

    I never thought about the velcro rolls. I have several of those.

    Now I need to figure out which sling and two point or single. All my others are two point, but this is the smallest.

    I agree. I would suggest a sling with QDs, rolled up in the bottom of the bag with large rubber bands or oversized inner tube bands, ready to attach if and when when you need it.

    Grey Ghost has a very lightweight sling that would be good for this application. Weighs nothing, folds up small, and is adjustable.

    Iíve got 1/8Ē shock cord woven through the hand guards on my ARs. On the Scorpion, I added the shock cord to the brace, due to limited rail space. I pull the slack out of the sling and tuck it under the cord. That keeps it sleek enough to not get in the way in a bag, but it deploys instantly with a simple tug.

    Do you plan to use the quick-release?

    Ken, My Scorpion has the folding stock vs the collapsible, so no QD spot. I do have the two areas on the receiver.

    Law, That is good information.

    Steve, Thanks. We need to go shooting again.

    Brent, I looked up that sling and currently they are sold out. I will keep my eyes open to see if they come back.

    Thank you gentlemen
