Check 'em out. I think there are various attachment options to meet your needs.

I just double checked and you are 100% correct, good sir. I do indeed have the Vickers VCAS on my AR.

I love it, great sling. I believe they do come with push in connections and clip connections. I ordered mine with the QD buttons, but it takes more than just a bump of the button to dislodge it.

Just a thought if you have the ms2, have you handled the ms3? I have handled both and agree the ms2 is not comfortable after long periods but the ms3 is wider than the ms2 to help combat this issue. It's not a drastic difference IMHO but it helps a good bit, that's why I went with the ms3.

I haven't handled it but have seen it. I just think I wanna go with a padded sling.

I remember searching for it everywhere and I found on ebay, but the ebay price was within $20 of a brand new one. I never did find it on cheaperthandirt, but you might try it now. I got mine about 2 years ago, maybe a little less, and it certainly wasn't $55 like I am seeing in checking now.

I would definitely pay the asking price now of $60-$75 for the padded VCAS.

Looks like $55 is about the going rate for the VCAS...

http://www.blueforcegear.com/vickers-padded-sling/


From their website: "To provide greater versatility, no attachment hardware is included but can still be threaded through existing slings loops. This sling combined with any variation of hardware the Sling Hardware section enables this sling to attach to almost any weapon."

You should be able to find attachment hardware to suit your needs for a few more dollars.

Do you guys find it to be too long at all?? I was reading some reviews on it and seemed like more than a few people thought it needed to be shortened.

I don't use mine as a tactical sling - mine is more of a carry sling for a hunting situation.

With that in mind, no, I haven't found it to be too long. Your choice of attachment points will effect how much you need to shorten it up as well.

At full extension it's long, but it's easy to cinch up and get a good, solid and useful multi-position length out of it without any hassle.
