The SAW SOP Sling possesses all of the same features and functional abilities of the standard SOP Sling. However, we've added several features to meet the unique demands of this particular weapons system. First off, we've added a removable and adjustable 2" wide x 3/8" thick EVA foam shoulder pad for additional comfort. Secondly, we use heavy duty, all steel, mil-spec snap hooks at the front and rear attachment points to interface with the existing ring mounts on the M-249, which allows the sling to be removed or attached in just seconds. Lastly, we use all steel tri-glides to ensure the weight of the weapon will not cause a hardware failure. In short, this is the most heavy duty sling system we've ever designed.
