Types and Uses of the Rifle Web Sling

The rifle sling, when adjusted properly, provides maximum stability for the weapon, and helps hold the front sight still and reduce the effects of the rifle's recoil. Once a sling adjustment is found that provides maximum control of the weapon, the same sling adjustment should be maintained. Varying the sling tension extensively will affect the strike of the bullet, which will make maintaining a BZO difficult. Using the same sling adjustment will ensure the accuracy of rounds on target. There are two basic types of rifle sling adjustments: the hasty sling and loop sling.


In training situations, the parade sling may be used. See paragraph 5008.
