Tactical 3 Point Slings
|RAP4 is proud to introduce three
tactical slings that are ready to serve in the thick of the action. The
RAP4 Tactical Sling is a three-point sling that functions like a harness
to strap your full-size marker to your body, leaving your hands free
while keeping it at the ready. The RAP4 2-Point Sling attaches to the
front and rear of your T68 via the sling attachment points, or to any
other marker via the included universal adapters. The RAP4 1-Point Sling
attaches to the stock of your T68 or the tank of your tactical marker,
giving you a dramatic, simple, and un-encumbering method of carry.
Together, these tactical slings represent the three styles most commonly found in real world use...and offer paintball players and tactical gamers a full range of carry options.
The RAP4 Tactical Sling uses a three-point design comprised of two on-marker attachment points that can attach to any full-size paintball marker of any manufacture, and a high-strength nylon/polymer web strap that secures to your body for the third point of contact. This dynamic strap brings current battlefield technology to your tactical gaming, as it is the preferred hands-free method of carbine carry by US military forces, private security forces, and many police tactical units. By hanging the marker along the strong side of your body, the stock ready to pivot straight into your shoulder pocket to bring the marker to bear immediately, the RAP4 Tactical Sling keeps you ready to return fire in a heartbeat...no matter what other tasks you are performing.
The RAP4 2-Point Sling is the traditional carry strap used for decades. It attaches to the front and rear sling attachment points on your T68, or attaches to the barrel and ASA of your standard paintball marker via the included universal adapters. Drape the sling across your body, and you can carry your marker across your back, across your chest, vertical behind a shoulder, or slung horizontally under your arm. Less sophisticated than the RAP4 Tactical Sling, it balances function with simplicity.
The RAP4 1-Point Sling is the minimalist approach to carrying your marker, keeping it at the ready by virtue of a truly clever design. A single loop of high-strength nylon/polymer webbing drapes across your chest and under your arm, with a single attachment point that affixes to the stock of your T68 or cinches around the ASA of your standard marker. This lets you dangle your marker muzzle-down by your side, with the stock ready to pivot up into your shoulder pocket to bring the muzzle to bear in a flash. While it puts the marker's weight on your opposite shoulder, rather than spreading it across your body like the RAP4 Tactical Sling, it provides the same quick-to-bear function for shorter missions and lighter markers.
The RAP4 Tactical Bungee Sling is a single-point design that consists of a stretchable rubber "bungee" body that attaches to the stock or tank of your marker. Carried the same as the RAP4 1-Point Sling, its main benefit is the elastic body that allows your marker to be easily transitioned from one side to the other, thrust away from the body, and deployed in awkward or non-intuitive shooting positions.
Analyze your playing style, the length of your missions and your personal preferences, and find the tactical sling that's right for you. From the state-of-the-art RAP4 Tactical Sling to the classic RAP4 2-Point Sling and the minimalist RAP4 1-Point Sling and RAP4 Tactical Bungee Sling, Read Action paintball is proud to give you practical solutions straight from real-world innovation.
