just my opinion, but you can't go wrong with the Vickers Sling from Blue Force Gear... I know you said single point sling though....

two point sling

So let me get this straight. On a MR556 for a two point sling, you can get your factory sling
HK 416 Sling | MR556 Sling - HKPARTS.NET or a Vickers or whatever, but HK does not have a factory rail mount or anything for the front? Is this correct? This just seems like a lack of forethought.

I will keep this breif.

The factory 416 sling is not a good option period.

HK hooks can easily fail if used improperly and should only be used when necessary.

Single point slings have too many cons to list. They can be used for quick transition if setup properly and practiced.

LCSO hit it on the head. Adj. 2-pt is the most versatile options.

An HK sling adapter would be about $200+ if it existed. Viable parts exist for much less.

Since the BFG Vickers option has already been mentioned I'll throw in a Magpul option as well MS2/MS3. Haven't seen the MS3 yet, but IMHO the MS2 strap was just too skinny.

Out of morbid curiosity, how did your arrive at the TacStrap/Slap Hippies combination as I can honestly say I have not heard of either product/company before they were mentioned here.

I use a GG&G "HK style" sling point for my front sling point, and I used the sling hook my 416 came with (because it has has the bit for taking the forend off), with my Vickers Blue Force 2-point sling. As far as snap hook failing, as I understand it, they have the potential of fail when used on non-HK specific attachment points, when the "snap" portion of the hook enters into the loop/attachment point, which is no the case with the sling point I'm using (or standard HK attachment points).... anyway, just my thoughts....

I too am curious about the kick hippies thing.... pic's

I do a little looking , aka research , see what people have then find what I like. Magpul looks cheap my tac strap looks like it cost twice as much, the slap plate is beefy and functional, serves its purpose, there is cool **** out there you just have to give them a chance

Who are these "people" and what sources/sites did you use for your research?

Good. I like to see that people are getting out, trying stuff and forming their own opinion on things. I was hoping it was more thoughtful than: "I just went on ar15.com and...."
