The Standard Issue Vickers Sling

The Standard Issue Vickers Sling has become the world's standard in combat weapon slings. After extensive testing including combat evaluations, this sling is issued with the USMC M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle and authorized for use with the M4, M4A1, and M16 series weapons. Read the full press release here.

The Patented Vickers Combat Applications Sling™ has revolutionized the way the US military approaches combat slings and has ushered in the “post 3-point sling” era. Developed to meet the requirements of former 1st SFOD-Delta operational member Larry Vickers, the VCAS™ incorporates key details that set this sling apart from all others. Over 250,000 Vickers Combat Applications Slings are in use by America’s Finest across every branch of service.

The Quick Adjuster - Contrasting Pull Tab

The contrasting color pull tab on the proprietary quick adjuster can instantly change the length of the sling to convert from carrying the weapon to a shooting position and quickly back again. When tightened, the sling has no excess webbing tail, springs, or moving parts that could fail, get tangled, or caught up in the weapon system.

Attachment Hardware Sold Separately 

The Standard Issue Vickers Sling attaches directly to fixed loop firearm attachment systems. Additional hardware can be purchased and added to the front and backend of the sling for more firearm attachment methods.
