I was handling my main AR before I lost it in a Kayak accident and I noticed that it was kinda heavy, My brother calls it a "Musket", it is full length, she has the 20" barrel and has gone through several adaption before Settled on a final Version. I decided to built an M4gery as they are called. I had ordered an "Angry Joe" stripped lower from Palmetto State Armory as a lark back in February and then Kung-Flu hit and I didn't get the lower until July I was handling my "Main AR" as I call it and even though it is no Frills It is pretty heavy and I decided to build a lighter rifle and my "M4gery" was born. You can read and see pics here of the lower.
Well I got the Upper in finally along with the optics, and I started building the Rifle. The Optics I got from an outfit called "Overlord Tactical" and they were $60 and they are Red and Green Dot. The Flip down rear sight I got off Amazon. I was looking for a sling for the rifle and didn't see one and figured I would have to order one off Amazon, I had asked my friend Mack and everyone's guru of Gunstuff and purveyor of gun knowledge and Hooter's calendar's what kind of sling I should get, I had mentioned that I wanted something simple, not cutting edge tacticool. and he suggested the Magpul MS-1, a good basic high quality sling. But unfortunately Amazon was out of stock, and I figured I would wait until the next day before ordering something else. Well I decided to go by the Army/Navy store in Forest Park where I had picked up the manual a month before in remembrance of my departed Garand in that nasty Kayak accident...Still brings a tear to me eye lemme tell you*sniff* Government ought to outlaw durn kayaks....hazards those things are....Hazards..lemme tell you..and canoes are worse...weapons of mass destructions....Pardon me for going off track....Well I decided to rummage around and lo and behold I found an M60 sling, Sweet! so I quickly purchased that and off I went.
Yep electrical tape, wrapped several times and put it slightly under tension as you wrapped it so less likelihood of it unraveling.
