    Default Best sling for an MP5?

    I have a couple MP5 SBRs - an A3 version and MP5K-PDW.

    I have bought a few slings for them, but I can't find one that will secure the SBRs muzzle down when I let go and let it hang. They all end up swinging parallel to the ground, which I don't like at all. I think it's just a function of the short barreled configuration, but I was wondering if anyone has found one that works well.

    I may just go with a single-point sling to remedy this, but I hate single point slings.

    The standard, cheap green HK sling works great for me....give it a shot.

    One more +1 for the hk three point. I would use that sling on everything. Very versatile.

    I’ll look for an HK 3-point sling. Thanks!

    Blue force gear Vickers sling works great. I use the Uloop on the front and normal attach on the rear.

    Single point slings do suck on a rifle but especially on your PDW will work well. The vickers sling above is a great sling, as are Savvy Sniper (my personal favorite).
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
