The MS1 padded sling is the latest addition to the Magpul line of rifle slings. By adding a padded section of variable-width tubular webbing to the already proven MS1 sling, this new product provides more comfort to the user when carrying heavy weapons. Other padded slings simply sew the pad onto or around an already existing sling. What they have done is taken a section of variable-width webbing of their proprietary weave and stitched a high-grade, ripstop coated, closed-cell foam pad to the inside of the sling. This ensures that the pad will never move inside of its housing and because the taper of the sling is woven, not stitched, the padded section has no known points of failure. By removing the structural stitching from padded slings, we have created a sleek and streamlined solution that exceeds all others in durability and aesthetics.
This sling system starts with an optimized, dedicated two-point sling that serves equally well in a one-point role when using optional adapters. Based on our MS1 slider, this system provides rapid adjustments to either lengthen or shorten the sling with no slipping once set, and no tails, loops, or other potential snag hazards. In a two-point role, the MS1 allows easy shoulder transitions, rapid adjustability for hands-free rifle carry and shooting support from various positions. The MS1 system also has a series of adapters that are sold separately and based on the MS3 and MS4 slings. By adding the appropriate adapter available in Paraclip or QD for the sling, you can easily add one-point function to your MS1.
