3 Point Slings are an excellent piece of equipment to keep your rifle close at hand at all times. This ICS 3 Point sling is made to be used with MK5s but will work with many other types of guns. This sling comes with metal clips to clip onto circular type sling mounts, like those found on the MK5 and UMG. When used properly 3 Point Slings attach the gun to the body in the alert position, allow the user to switch firing hands without removing the sling from the body, and allow the gun to be slung around the back when not needed. There is no better way to keep your gun close at hand than the 3 Point Sling from ICS.
Cost Effective sling. Works well with a M4 rifle, or any of the sort. According to some other reviews, some would argue it works best for a G36C. Anyways, here's the break down for the un-informed:
The sling is a 3-point sling (obviously) and connects at two points and has the third that connects to the sling itself to allow you to shoulder or use your rifle without having to unshoulder it as you would with a traditional 2-point sling. It comes packaged as follows: 1 sling and 2 sling adapters.
The sling itself is durable and well made. The main part of the sling has a velcro strap that you can adjust to help fit the length of your weapon, or shoulder/body. The sling adapters are great for any gun, and actually are best used on every gun if possible, since the latches on the sling are metal, and can cause a bit of noise and scratch up your gun if you are one to care. The main thing is reducing the noise. The sling also has elastic strap covers that help cover the metal latches, so you can reduce the possible noise from it clanking against your weapon further.
One thing that slightly bugged me and a friend was that the sling itself does not have a mechanism to lock the third point, so it's all lose, and can mess up if you're not shouldering the sling properly.
Still, overall, the sling allows you to shoulder your weapon easily, and drop it in front or back.

I bought this sling and it is great. It works great on my KWA M4A1. It didn't take that long to figure out but i looked at guides so it was easy. I just can't figure out what the velcro part of it is for. I have an idea but not sure.

I purchased this sling for my mp5a4 and it works very well. I little tricky to put together, but luckily my friend has the exact sling on his g&g m14.
