Aspen Ridge Sports—One Point Sling “SofSling”

I was able to review another great product for Aspen RidgeSports. This time it was their Single Point Sling or otherwise labeled “SofSling”. I wanted to do a video for this product as well but it just seemed that there was always something new coming up in the family and I was just never able to get it done. Anyways, Aspen Ridge has designed a one point sling that attaches to your rifle by way of a sling adaptor. It doesn’t take very long to attach and if you don’t have the know-how, you can contact your local gun dealer and get a quote on their labor fee.

Once the adapter is placed on the rifle, the sling is already ready to go. It has a heavy duty snap hook that attaches directly into the adaptor connector and it can be attached for right and left hand shooters. So much today do we see most items are made for right handed individuals because of how they outnumber lefties. But Aspen Ridge takes all of that into account when they design their products so that no one is left out and this way they are able to provide to a much diverse clientele.

The sling itself is made of 1 ½ “of Nylon Webbing which is also accompanied by two bungees to reduce the shock on your shoulder. So, when you have to transition from rifle to pistol for close combat, when the rifle is dropped, the bungees absorb the weight rather than transitioning it to your shoulder and making for a much easier transition to your handgun or other items that need to be gathered or used.

The sling comes with two release mechanisms for easier entry into vehicles. Simply undo the quick release buckle and you are on your way. Or, you can remove your firearm by way of removing the metal snap hook from the firearm itself.

Other great innovations include the ability to adjust to your comfort level. It is fully adjustable and me being a man of great stature, I definitely need this option. I was able to adjust my sling comfortably without having to jeopardize reliability of knowing where my firearm was.  
This is where I was hoping to have a video but as I said, I wasn’t able to get one up. I put my sling through hell. I did maneuvers that utilized me having to throw my rifle around to my back and using my sidearm. I wanted to test the durability, whether or not the snap and quick release would buckle under pressure and I wanted to illustrate real-life possibilities that could occur. Not once did I have any issue of give from the buckles and the sling operated professionally. The strain from the slinging of the firearm was absorbed into the bungees and I really did not notice any pull on my shoulder, but I did feel a little near my neck, which is where a lot of tension rests. It was expected.

This sling and the components that it is made up of are of very high quality and can take a beating and being a Marine veteran, this is the kind of dependability that I would be looking for on the field of battle. I give this sling a “Semper Fi” because it is just like the Marines, “Always Faithful”.
