    Have been running this setup on my swat vest for couple months now and am very happy so far. Seems well made and transitions during building clears are a breeze. I have this rig mounted to my vest via D ring hooked to a shoulder strap. I also just purchased the ASP for patrol use, ditching the 2 point I had on it before.

    All I can say about this sling is WOW! Reduced hangups on gear (if I say it never happens Murphy will find me).

    There was only one issue I had with the sling but it was fixed in an instant. Not having a shoulder loop on my plate carrier I was forced to mount the sling on the MOLLE ladder on the front. When I did this I found that the rubber logo tag was in the way because I had to shorten the mount up so much. After pulling the tag I was ble to snug it right up.

    Now I just need to buy the ASP for the times I don’t need my plate carrier.

    I just got back from a four day tactical carbine course and the ASP-V worked flawlessly!

    Like the review above, I was apprehensive about a static sling, not any more! My primary weapon was always at the ready and never in the way. It becomes a part of your rig. With the release tab, transitioning to weak hand was incredibly smooth and easy. I cannot say enough good things about this sling, just another example of excellent workmanship from someone who took the time to think things through.

    IMO you will not find better customer service anywhere in the industry!

    Thank you Jason!

    I recently evaluated the ASP-V from Gear Sector. Here is my review:

    T&E for the ASP-V

    Weapon: M4 with Gear Sector (formerly TAG) SPRE, right handed Burnsed loop. Sling: Gear Sector ASP weapon stub. Rig: Blackhawk Commando Chest Rig (hey, I didn’t name the thing). Attachment: The V is connected to the chest rig by shoulder strap-mounted D rings.

    First impressions: I’ll begin by saying that I was NOT a fan of the static mount sling, and I along with some others told Jason about this prior to the announcement of the V and the T&E process. I didn’t like the idea of having my rifle secured to something that I might need to ditch in a hurry, or that would take more time when you get jocked up. I was perfectly happy with the ASP single point. When I got the V from Jason, it was evident that the same quality of materials and workmanship that went into the ASP and the SPRE went into the new strap as well. The strap is made of quality tubular web, very heavy without being overworked. The stitching was quality work as well, with significant reinforcements throughout in the high load and stress areas. It is dirt simple in it’s form, and provides full function without useless frills. The V is best described as an attachment loop that (in my case) threads through the D-rings on my chest rig and the weapon attachment stub which Jason calls the ripcord. It is all one unit, and can’t be taken apart. The attachment loop which forms the top of the V provides the anchor point for the entire V strap assembly. This is basically a web strap that passes up through the D-rings or MOLLE loops of whatever you wish to attach it to, and then feeds back over itself through a triglide. This provides some degree of insurance against the web strap backing out as it takes load, as might be the case with a simple slide lock. There is ample strapping to allow the anchor to be placed as high as the top of the shoulder and still have enough hang to allow the weapon to be carried low enough for utility without lengthening the ripcord and still make the doubled-up pass though the triglide. At the other end of the attachment point is the ladder-loc through which the ripcord passes. The ripcord is a single piece of webbing with a D-ring on the hanging end and the QDP weapon attachment buckle on the other. As worn, the D-ring should be against your body, with the QDP farthermost out. The ripcord, like the other components is heavily stitched on high-stress areas, with the “handle” part of the ripcord stiffened for easier grasping.

    I attached the V to my M4 using a Gear Sector attachment stub and SPRE.

    Use: Once you have your rig on, you attach the weapon to the V as you would using the standard ASP: the QDP male on the weapon stub snaps into the female QDP on the V. The V allows the chest rig/plate carrier/harness/backpack to function as the ASP would if worn. The V can be attached to either the strong or weak side, regardless of which hand is being used. From my experience this is determined by the presence of a sidearm, more on that in a moment. To adjust the hang of the weapon, you take a firing grip on the weapon and use the support hand to operate the ripcord. To loosen or lower the hang push the ladder-loc tab and push the weapon outwards or downwards. To tighten or raise the hang, take a firing grip on the weapon and use the support hand to pull on the D-ring or the ripcord strap itself. This allows you to adjust the rifle to hang at whatever height is most comfortable for you, depending on your gear and weapon. Back to which side to attach the V to. If you are running a pistol, I found at the suggestion of some of the other testers that it’s easier to transition if the V is attached off of the support side shoulder. On the strong side, the weapon will usually hang in a line directly down from your shoulder, which can be problematic in drawing a sidearm. Particularly if as in my case you are using prominent chest-mounted mag pouches. This prevents or hinders the usual chest sweep/secure with the support hand. By attaching the V on the weak side, the weapon will tend to hang on the support side. Using the SPRE, the attachment point allows the sling stub to still make a direct path from the weapon to the support shoulder. The sling also has plenty of room to allow you to transition to off-shoulder shooting if needed due to the construction and layout of the sling assembly. If you are not running a pistol, it becomes a matter of personal preference of whichever makes you more comfortable.

    General impressions after use: I’ve completely changed my mind on static mounted slings due to this sling. The sling functioned exactly like the ASP with the obvious difference of now having the chest rig being used in place of the ASP loop. This allows one less piece of gear to be used by keeping the V on my chest rig, and snapping the QDP into my gear when I need my battle rattle. A further benefit of using the V is that the weapon now feels like it is part of my gear, and the weight is distributed across the entire rig rather than on the loop, which is a detriment to some users. On a plate carrier this is even more secure. One of the strengths of the ASP that I was concerned about losing was the ability to slide the sling around to my back or under my support arm if I needed to get the weapon out of the way and off of my front. With the V static attachment, I wasn’t going to be able to do this. However, lengthening the hang of the weapon by slackening the ripcord allows the weapon to be slung to the rear in one of two ways: either flip the rifle up and over the shoulder onto your back, or drop your anchor shoulder and swing the weapon outboard of your body. Depending on space available (don’t take it up and over in a building with a standard ceiling or if you are in heavy brush) and what you’re carrying on your back you can use either method. To return the weapon, reverse the process. Using the around the shoulder method, I found that it was pretty easy to swing the weapon back around, adjusting the method depending on if it was strong- or weak-side mounted. In terms of use, I found the V to be just as utilitarian as the ASP loop. Shooting was comfortable from any position, including prone. Transitioning to weak shoulder was done by simply popping the stock of the weapon up and over the strap, and seating it back in the pocket of the weak shoulder.

    To summarize, I freakin’ love this sling. I’ve often heard of the feel of driving a BMW described as being akin to the car being machined from a single block of steel, and I would say that using the V on a chest rig or plate carrier parallels this. It makes the weapon feel like it is part of your rig without it even being noticeable. All of the utility of the single point ASP, with the convenience and solidity of being part of your gear.
