    Looking for a simple sling that i can use not just to carry the rifle but as a shooting support for my AK- ala what they teach at Appleseed events. Any recommendations?

    I'd worry more about sling adjustment.

    I don't like the Cooper style.

    I prefer to wedge my elbow into the sling,

    and push my forearm out to create tension

    to control recoil when shooting offhand. In order to

    do this quickly, you should adjust the sling to the proper

    tension beforehand.

    I'd try sling types out and choose what you like.

    its really hard to find the right one. What purpose is it for? Tactical or just whatever?

    I have a viking tactics sling on my AK,like the quick adjustments. It's got a pull cord that can tighten the rifle snug against your body or loosen it in a very fast manner. It's great for adjusting the tension to support you in different shooting positions in a hurry

    I have a tac-sling on a couple of my rifles, I just like the

    thick sling itself. Don't really do the "fast adjust" thing.

    They are great slings anyway. Good support, nice grip, etc.

    I realize this thread is a little old but I've been away for a few days.

    Take a look at the Blue Forse Double A Padded Sling. It is the nicest of the few I've tried. Great for extended range trips.
