Outfitting Your AR For Hunting (Page 2)
Turn today’s modern sporting rifle into the ultimate hunting rig.

Unless you plan to shoot prairie dogs from a benchrest, you’re going to want some type of sling for your AR. Forget the standard rifle sling and opt instead for a tactical sling. Whether it’s a single point or multipoint is a matter of preference. The single-point attaches to where the castle nut holds the buffer tube in place. While lacking the comfort of a wider sling, single-point slings allow the user to toss the rifle behind his or her back and out of the way when toting items or climbing and in front of him at the ready when on a stalk. A multipoint sling is more comfort for long hikes, is more traditional in how it works, but also allows a hunter to tote the gun in a ready position toward the front of his body.
