Default Factory style sling in fde?

I'm looking for a good sling on a budget, (double point) but since my rifle is all black, I'd like to add a little color. I probably won't have it on there forever, but I want something that will last.
So, is there a factory style sling in flat dark earth or a similar color?

I appreciate any suggestions, thanks.

I've been looking at the blue force 2 point padded sling for my newly built ar. I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean by factory sling.

I missed your reply, sorry.

I meant a 2 point nylon, I actually just ordered a Blue force 2 point sling in coyote, good suggestion. Thanks

Let us know how it works out for you. I haven't pulled the trigger on a sling yet and would love to know how you like that blue force.

Well, just got my BFG VCAS (unpadded) sling in and I have to say, it's worth every penny.

It adjusts from short to long in an instant and without ever un-shouldering, to shorten it completely back down requires both hands and a bit more effort though, but still minimal.

All in all , I'd not hesitate to recommend it, great sling... Plus that coyote looks awesome on the all black rifle.
