Default Need National Match AR sling advice

I ordered a BCM A4 Mod1.
And I want a Turner Saddlery AWS sling.


My question is what length do I get?
50"/52" or 54"/56"?
I'm 6'4" so I'd guess the longer one, but I don't want the sling
so long one of my friends couldn't use it if needed.

I hate ordering items you don't have a chance to handle first.

my opinion: get the one that will fit you. your buddy can buy his own if yours doesnt work for him.

the turner aws is in my opinion the best sling there is. got one in black i use it on my m1a ar15 1903a3 and m1 garand.

:update:

Thought I'd post what I found out in case anybody wandered by this thread with the same question.

I sent Turner Saddlery an e-mail and quickly received a reply to give them a call. I did and spoke to some very nice and professional people. Your height and weight plays as much of a role in determining what length you need as what kind of rifle you plan on using it on.

Nice peeps. turnersling.com

I have a Fulton Armory NM AR-15 A2 and I use the turner sling. A great combination!!
