The official Warrior Poet Society Rifle Sling, fresh out of WPS Laboratories and proudly made in the USA.
Tactical Rifle Bungee Sling With Jedi Buckle
Many shooters struggle with a loose sling that causes the gun to him their legs during movement...unless they've got hands on the gun. A tactical rifle sling holds your gun so that you don't have to. Tightening your rifle sling so the gun is higher and tighter to the body is the better solution. Tightening the rifle sling too much, though, can cause difficulty in quickly presenting your gun. Ideally, the sling holds the gun close when you don't need to shoot, but also allows you enough free-play to present the gun when you do need it. Two key improvements help the WPS tactical rifle sling accomplish this ideal:
Bungee Sling Section - allows the sling to hold the gun higher and tighter to the shooter than other slings while still allowing the shooter to present the gun to address immediate threats. Other slings may need to be worn looser (causing your gun to hit you in the legs when you walk without a support hand on the gun), or for you to have some form of quick-adjust piece to continually change the length of the sling.
Jedi Buckle - The importance (and coolness) of this quick-release (and -attachment) feature cannot be overstated. Rare earth magnets are used to allow a new type of buckle that is much faster and easier to connect and disconnect than traditional quick-disconnects. This is a cool improvement, and also happens to be really fun. Yes, part of the appeal of the Jedi Buckle is that it is fun. #dontjudgeituntilyoutryit
And just in case you’re wondering if the Jedi Buckle will suddenly release on you, we took the sling to the gym. Even after weighting the buckle with 160 lbs, it still held. See the video for more on that. It’s very strong but releases with the flick of a finger.
- Compatible with QD Sling Swivels for increased speed and flexibility
- Magnetic Jedi Buckle for lightning fast attachment/detachment
- Bungee section provides just the right amount of give to maximize comfort and mobility while maintaining stability
The Integrated Stretch and Perfect Positioning of the WPS Rifle Sling
A rifle sling should keep your gun high and tight and between your knees when you’re hands-free and on the move. Let me just say–if you’re using a hand to steady your gun or you’re continually adjusting its position, that defeats the point of a sling.
- Form fitting.The grade of bungee we use provides just the right amount of stretch so that it conforms to your torso–even when wearing your full kit (body armor, ammo, comms equipment, etc)–but not so much that it bounces.
- Perfectly placed. The way the sling holds the gun ensures the butt stock sits right near the pocket of my shoulder. It’s idiot-proof because it’s always right there where I need it.
- Customizable. The harness system of the WPS Rifle Sling provides for a customized fit with easily-adjustable straps to create tension and mobility where they are needed most.
- Fast acting. The ergonomics mean more than just comfort. That stretch system enables you to be quick on the draw in a variety of tactical environments when milliseconds count. The fact that I can do a shoulder transition with a snug-fitting sling–that should blow your mind.
The WPS Rifle Sling is the result of decades of R&D on the battlefield of Afghanistan, Iraq, and other tactical environments.
Early on in the global war on terrorism, before this huge industry blew up with a thousand options for how to customize a weapon, I just wasn’t impressed with what I was issued in the Rangers. This is why I started making my own rifle slings.
I took a section of tubular nylon, scrunched it up at one point and added a section of bungee. It had just the right amount of give so I could quickly maneuver my rifle, and when not in use it would ride perfectly out in front of me–high and snug. It didn’t knock my knees, a heated muzzle or suppressor didn’t singe my shoes, and it was already in the right place to shoulder for engagement.
I loved that sling.
Then, of course, I made some pretty terrible slings with a little too much bungee and poor placement of hardware. My gun bounced around everywhere and drove me nuts. But what this trial and error experimentation did was set me on a journey of solving a real-world battlefield problem. As a dude who is hunting around the deserts of Afghanistan or the urban areas of Iraq, I needed a rifle sling that would hold my gun up close, high and tight. I needed to be able to walk with my hands free–to work on a casualty, go hands-on with a hostile, or do whatever else I needed to do without my rifle getting in the way. But the gun also needed to be ready for action.
Fast forward to today. We’ve finally perfected what I wanted to create a long, long time ago. I present to you The WPS Rifle Sling. It’s a game changer. This sling is the result of years of R&D on the battlefield and in other tactical environments around the world. We know it works because we’ve tested it tirelessly.
If you’re thinking “Man. That sling would be pretty cool for my agency or team,” you’re probably right.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a bungee sling?
Sometimes called an elastic rifle sling, a bungee sling is a rifle sling that incorporates an elastic bungee section.
- What is the purpose of a sling on a rifle?
The primary purpose of a sling on a rifle is to provide additional stability by making the interface between the shooter and the rifle more rigid. Because the sling helps to hold the rifle for you, less muscle and effort is required to support the rifle. This will ultimately improve marksmanship, especially over the course of longer engagements.
- What are the benefits of a rifle bungee sling?
A rifle bungee sling allows the user much more flexible manipulation of the weapon while still keeping the rifle snug against the user's body without bouncing too much.
- Is a rifle sling necessary?
Yes, a rifle sling is necessary. You will not find a professional operator that does not have a support sling on their rifle as it allows them the opportunity to free up their hands for other needs, while also giving them the ability to carry the rifle over long distances with a fraction of the effort and energy.
- Is a 1 or 2 point sling better?
Most firearms are designed to better accomodate a two point sling as opposed to a one point sling. Having a secondary attachment point will generally grant the user more stability.
- Does the military use rifle slings?
Yes, every branch of the military uses slings on their rifle.
- What is the best width for a rifle sling?
A rifle sling that is around 1 1/4-inch to 1 1/2-inch wide will provide the proper amount of stability while still maintaing a low profile and easily interfacing with any kit you may have on.
- Does a rifle sling help with accuracy?
Yes, a rifle sling helps improve shooting accuracy by providing additional stability to the user and reducing fatique and shake that may result from holding the rifle for extended periods of time without a sling attached. The rifle sling does the support work for you so you can focus on maintaining a clear sight alignment and sight picture.
This is a very quality good feeling sling, and as Mr. Lovell says the Jedi buckle is in fact extremely fun. I really wanted to support Mr. Lovell and WPS since I am as well a Christian and I’m glad I did, this is a really nice sling and I will more than likely buy more in the future.
I bought both the WPS Rifle Sling and the WPS Adjustable Rifle Sling. Here is my honest opinion of both. First off, both slings are built tough and I have no fear of failure. I have used them multiple times in training and they work flawlessly. I have used numerous bungee slings and this is the best feel of all. WPS Rifle Sling - PRO-I love the Jedi buckle in and of itself. Its cool to play with and has an incredibly strong magnet that will not come disconnected unless you pull the release. CON-the buckle at times sticks to the mag release (not a big deal, just FYI). If you are operating your firearm with the sling hanging (not wearing it) the buckle can "clank" against your rifle (again, not a big deal just an FYI) WPS Adjustable Sling - PRO-this one is my favorite of the two slings. The adjustment works flawlessly every time. CON- the release strap is bright red. I would like to see another option on the color. You buy a black or tan sling to blend in to whatever environment you see yourself in and then theirs a bright red strap attached. Perhaps the black sling could utilize a tan strap, and the tan sling could utilize a black strap.
Some one tell John and his sister to produce a ranger green sling. Why is that not a thinh? Other than that complaint I have the black and tan. Run both, I'm a fan. Jedi DC has been a legit nicety.
Love this sling, super comfortable and the jedi buckle seriously is fun. My only complaint is that the ends of the sling itself fray easily, which makes it very difficult when removing and re-attaching the sling(For example, when returning or drawing your rifle to/from the armory). Otherwise, absolutely love this thing.
I bought the WPS Sling and wanted to use it for a few weeks before writing a review. What can I say, it's a great sling that just plain works. It holds my rifle close and secure when I need to go hands-on with a suspect. It shoulders quickly and easily. I can wrap my forearm for additional support on longer shots. Shoulder transitions are quick and simple, with no adjustment tabs to remember to use when under high stress encounters. It is evident careful thought went into the design by someone with real life experience. I have used several good slings over the years, but the WPS Sling is simply a better sling. Get it, you won't regret it. As a side note, I too would love to see this sling in OD Green...
I'm a reservist in combat engineering and I'm really happy with the strap for the weapon I bought from you, I went out with it to do exercises and tasks, it's really easy and convenient to use
I am a fan of this sling and have 2 that I use on the regular. I think the jedi buckle is a great improvement over other slings I have used. The bungee does allow for easier use with less adjustment. I do however see the need for a quick loosening option, even with the bungee and jedi buckle. There are times you may need a looser fit or a tighter fit around your body and a loosening tab would be a great addition. This sling does not have a simple way to loosen on the go. To loosen the sling you now need to un velcro the additional webbing and untwist it from the sling to make adjustments. It is for this reason I am giving the 4 out of 5 rating. If this change was made, it would be BY FAR the best do all sling on the market.
I bought both the jedi buckle and the adjustable. After some tests in various conditions with various loadouts, I found out that jedi buckle variant is perfect for more tactical work, with carrier and/or war belt, camelback, backpack, etc. Easy and fast removal of the rifle and instant reconnect without disturbing straps and hose. The adjustable variant on the other hand is perfect for hunting and sporting, where you might need to shoot from various uncomfortable positions and adjusting it fast and properly gives additional stabilization and support.
Absolutely love this sling for my AR, one of the best I've come across to date. I only wish WPS would start offering an OD green version!
Bought this for my AR15 great sling works as advertised and was probably the most Gucci thing I put in the rifle not that I cheaper out on anything but went for price point across the rest of the accessories so primary arms SLX 5x36 prism, streamlight and arisaka defense for hand stop and mounting solutions as well as a Midwest industries blast can on SFA saint edge. The nylon choice on the short side of the Jedi buckle needs to be stiffer as it is hard to relocate the buckle once detached. Hence the 4 stars
This is my 3rd purchase of the WPS bungee sling, not because of a problem but because they are THE BEST. The buck stops here when it comes to slings the though and design that went into this makes it the most comfortable and versatile sling you could ever ask for. My only regret is I wish I had the money back I wasted on countless other slings over the years when all I ever need was this to begin with. Thankyou for such product genius John, you’re the leader of the pack with this one ! A++++++
This is the first sling of the MANY that I have bought that has proven itself. Worked Great at the Heartbreak RnG. I plan on using it as my go to sling. I was able to Jog, Sprint, Walk, Crawl, Climb Scoot and even Shoot while my rifle never moved. Thanks WPS -Scott RnG Tactics www.rngtactics.com
This is the best sling you will EVER buy. Don't think about it any longer. JUST BUY IT! You will NOT regret it! It is 100% everything John said it was. One of the best purchases I've ever made.
Just received my sling that I bought with some birthday money. Really like this sling and how it keeps my rifle snug up against my body, but accessible as well. And I agree, the Jedi buckle is just plain cool! Had a family get together and my cousin and I were talking. I just retired from a major LE organization, but he still has a couple of years to go. Told him about the sling and is very interested! Stay safe and Check 6!!
I picked up this sling during a sale, and I’m immediately regretting that I only picked up one. I put it on my MK18 and I now need to put one on my other guns. The quality of materials is and the thought that went into this sling setup beat out everything currently on the market. The stretch that it offers is exactly the right amount and it the coolness factor is off the charts. Highly recommended.
Have 4, purchasing more, that is how much I love these slings. Best sling on the market, IMO
Fantastic sling, I used it on my last moose hunt (which was unfortunately unsuccessful) with my tikka T3 mounted on a German Gun Stock. I’m almost totally satisfied with the product with only one critique: the Jedi buckle makes a slight clicking sound while moving. It’s very subtle, but it will drive any stalking hunter mad. I fixed it with some good old duck tape so that both components stayed glued together and quiet. I would suggest building a second and cheaper version of the sling without the Jedi buckle. I will definitely hunt with this again.
The WPS rifle sling is an exceptional piece of gear. It is very well designed and a lot of thought and experience went into the engineering behind it.
Just received my rifle sling yesterday , the one with the Jedi clip, AWESOME! I love it! Great when you need to unstrap quickly, just a slight pull and your free!
I’ve had quite a few different rifle slings and decided to order one of the WP slings. By far the best sling I own! I’ll be ordering more for my other rifles.
I HATE BUNGEE SLINGS..... Well I did anyway. This is nothing like any bungee sling out there. Definitely worth the money if you are on the fence. It really is everything he says it is. My only "fix" would be a little more strap on the stock/brace end. It wouldn't quite fit the SOB brace the way I wanted (yes it is a me problem) but made it work and I love it anyway ;-). Doubt I will every by any other sling!
I have a lot of slings but my two Warrior Poet Slings are by far the best. My third one is in the mail and on its way to me
First off I absolutely love the sling, keep it on my home defense firearm via a SentryStrap so I'll have it immediately available if needed. And I can say the sling is amazingly sturdy. So much so that it survived the basic torture tests I did to see if it failed and some light training before the strap failed after a year due to two lines of stitching having been missed. I reached out and they immediately rushed me out a replacement within 48 hours. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great sling from an even greater group!
So far so great. It just came in the mail and I’m trying to reteach my brain from years of swimming out from my sling from first initial contact. I’m taking it with me to JRTC and that will be a really good test of how durable the sling will be in the swamps. RLTW!
Does it hold a rifle well? Yes. Is it over complicated with a bunch of moving parts and rigging? No Is the jedi clip effective, and fun to play with? You better believe it! By far the best sling I've used, without a doubt.
I just finished a 4 day shotgun coarse at Front Sight yesterday. I used my WPS sling & it operated flawlessly the entire class. I dig it, I’d buy it again!
I have both a Blue Viking sling and the WPS Sling in Black, side by side both are great but the WPS Sling is just better. The WPS sling is very comfortable on the neck and shoulder and the elastic once adjusted is great for low and high ready as well as just slung down at your side. The QD clip is great for dumping ur rifle off at a moments notice or just to lay the rifle down out of the way without having to un sling. Plus the WPS Emblem always starts conversations at the range.
I have the black and it is Top Notch! I' waiting for the OD Green tho... come on baby!!! They will sell out!
Guys I give 6 stars on this sling no second thoughts I do have to say I do hope you come out with an EDC belt to match honestly the best belt I have found is the nextbelt EDC check it out the only thing I would pay more for it for would be the wp on the buckle it's the best for appendix carry but I just like to give to our just cause and will continue to buy under that thought process great job on the sling guys I have many but this is my 5th one because it's my favorite!!! It works in every way
Love the sling!! Will you guys be making an OD green one?
I recently purchased the WPS rifle sling and its amazing. I already own Ferro Concepts and Magpul slings which are top of the line great slings but the comfort, and bungee aspects of the WPS takes slings to the next level. Im not a service member or ever fully kitted out but I know enough to recommend this to everyone as my favorite. The stretch is perfect. Great product!!!
I purchased one for my SBR, loved it and now I am back again to purchase one for my AR-10
Absolutely love it! I had to wait a while for black to be in stock but it was totally worth it. Setup was super easy and it is very comfortable so far(I haven't went for any long distance hikes with it yet) I will probably buy another for the new 300 blk pistol I just finished.
For anybody out there looking for one awesome sling that is versatile in all positions you can stop looking this is the one. John has done it again and presented another great product. I got this for Christmas thanks to my wife. This sling does have the right amount of stretch and does a good job at keeping the gun close to you. I had a 3 point sling and it is just way to many straps and this WPS sling does just as good with more versatility. I definitely recommend anybody looking for a good sling for your rifle setup. The color is great and looks good. The Jedi buckle is top notch and just fun to work. Keep up the good work John and the WPS team for what y’all do and stand for.
What a fantastic sling! John did a great job creating the perfect sling. I encourage you to watch his video demonstration of this sling to understand why it is pure perfection. Thanks John!
I just received my slings this morning and I love it I liked the sling when I saw your video but after being hands on the video does no justice it's an amazing sling quality and craftsmanship is top notch you did a bang up job thank you and stay safe my friend
Hands down the best sling you will buy! I have 3 now and hate anything else I use. I plan to buy more as needed...maybe even as Christmas gifts.
This thing totally rocks, I don't ever want any other sling on my gun. The Jedi buckle is super sweet, it's really comfortable with the bungee section, no rubbing, no chafing. It's just great and well worth the price or even its weight in gold.
I've tried others and won't go back. This is the new standard of excellence in rifle slings. Excellent quality and fast shipping. Will be ordering again.
Absolute gold standard. Period. Buy with confidence. Does everything I need it to do and nothing that I don’t. Comfortable enough to hike/hunt, practical enough to confidently fight. Jedi buckle is a nice and useful feature, but the bungee retention ratio was absolute perfection right out of the box and that’s what really puts it over the top for me. Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.
Notified of sling availability (as promised) and ordered on Tuesday. Sling shipped Wednesday and was in my mailbox and on my rifle by Friday afternoon. Previous reviews are not wrong. This sling is the gold standard. Form & function make weapon a natural extension of the body. No distractive on-the-fly adjustments. Essentially point and shoot. Comfortable and unobtrusive carry even in a heavier rifle. Game changer. Force multiplier. Too many superlatives to describe the sling, it’s ease of use and simplicity. BZ, WPS.
Probably the best sling I have ever had. Spent 23 years in the Army. Had a crap ton of different slings in my day. Oh who am I kidding… this IS the best sling on the market today. Great job John! Love your product. Just bought a bunch of other stuff. I am now hooked like crack to your products. I especially truly love that you are a God loving man. It is hard to find companies that not only stand for their product, yet thank our Lord Jesus Christ, for their success. I tip my hat to you, and your amazing wife and family. May God grace you with his eternal love.
The warrior poet sling is perfectly designed and it performs very well. I give it two thumbs up!
I've ALWAYS used (another popular sling).... til now. I love the warrior poet sling on my primary because it is much more comfortable for extended use purposes than any other sling I've tried because it has built in cushion that helps your neck like no other sling I've tried... It also has something I've never ever seen in any sling ever... The Jedi Buckle... It's really cool... Works flawlessly, helps when you're quickly relieving yourself from carrying your rifle, and also is strong as ever... Also the Velcro band that secures the excess material is really amazing... Hands down the best sling I've ever used. I'm gonna buy them as Christmas gifts for all my friends that I truly care about for sure. The Warrior Poet Team absolutely hit a grand slam with this incredible Sling...
...and in the darkness...bind your rifle in a comfortable, secure manner. This review is coming from someone who has naively dropped far too much money on slings in the past. Playing goldilocks with slings can get expensive fast, and there is a ton of variables that make a decent sling the wrong sling for a particular person. Body shape, size, rifle style, weight, attachment points, situational context, etc. This sling is my "One Sling". While I doubt John has elves on his payroll making stuff, it wouldn't suprise me based on how perfect this sling is for me. The two biggest things I love, are the perfect width and bungee of the strap, and how the design distributes the weight of the rifle across my entire back, not just my neck/trap area. I couldn't be happier, thanks for designing a great product!
Holy cow my friend. I got to say. This is one beautiful and impressive piece of equipment. If there is a man I would do anything (in a moral capacity) to meet. It would be the man of the decade John. Your the most inspiring, humbling, motivational, and impressive man I've ever witnessed. I send my love and best wishes to you, your family, and everyone in between. Take care my friend. We love you.
As stated.. this thing is a sling of beauty. Keeps the rifle nice and tight, but plenty of give when you need it. The Jedi buckle is... well it's the coolest buckle I've ever handled. Amazingly easy to adjust, and the velcro strap keeps excess nice and tidy. Worth every penny, and then some. Works exactly as John advertised it to do in his video.
Without question the best rifle sling ever made... Better then BFG's Vickers or the Magpul MS4.
This is the sling we've been waiting for! I've trying for months to get it and finally did and boy is it sweet. Just enough give, super comfortable and the Jedi buckle is easy to use and durable. I love my blue force gear sling but this takes it to a whole other level.
Once I’d installed the sling it only took a handful of ready ups and a few minutes walking around with a rifle before I knew I would be ordering more.
I’ve been struggling with finding the best sling for my application. This one is near close to perfect. The quality is equal to or better than any that I’ve tried so far. I will be purchasing more as soon as black is back in stock.
The fit & finish is amazing.... It's just the right amount of stretch and is so comfortable plus the buckle design is awesome.
This is the rifle sling I've been looking for but wasn't available until recently. It works AMAZING! Is made of the best materials and craftsmanship. I highly recommend it! (When it is in stock..i had to wait for a restock) locksmithdb
Just received mine! Fast shipping as well! The sling is awesome! Holds tight to the body, even with movement, but moves when you need it to! Highly recommend. And yes... Jedi.Buckle. haha Perfect.
Fantastic design just the given in all the right places! And you don't have to be a Star Wars nerd to appreciate the Jedi buckle. Easy on,easy off!
Slings awesome. The idea to wrap up the excess was great. The buckle is strong yet comes apart fast and easy if needed. I used it the other day and my buddy did as well. He wants to convert his stuff to these now.
Got my sling in today. I absolutely LOVE it! Feels very light weight yet very durable and comfortable. The bungee has just the right give in it. Buckle is perfect for quickly getting out of the sling in the fog of war. I wish I had this thing during the Battle of Ramadi! I will be doing a video review soon over at my Youtube channel, Modern Frontiersman.
Comfortable, well made, and does what it’s supposed to do better than any of the other slings I’ve used.
Sling feels really well built and is comfortable. Elastic section is strong, keeps even my heavies rifle high and tight. Jedi buckle is actually really cool. I run the forward QD attachment high up on the handguard (near receiver)... and the magnet in the buckle has a tendency to stick to the bolt catch. That's not by design I don't think, I'm unsure yet if I view that as a bug or a feature. The strap isn't as beefy as the Blue Forces, but I don't think that matters. Overall, I like this so far, I think it's an improvement over 2 point slings with a pull tab. Great product, would purchase again.
This sling is a very smart design. The Jedi buckle is a really neat feature - gives you a moment of "Now how does this wo... oh, now that's sweet." The sling is easy to manipulate and comfortable. It's great seeing WPS enter the sling-ring with such a heavy hitter. Highly recommended. Rated E for Everyone.
Already received my new WPS sling! The Jedi buckle is great and as a whole, the set-up is fantastic. Looks great too. It's already installed on my most used piece of hardware. Feels good, looks good and will be put through the paces tomorrow.
I just saw your video on youtube about your sling! I will be purchasing 2x. It fixes all the issues with previous models. I currently run a 2 point sling with the pull tab. While this is a good concept, your elastic sling with the Jedi lock is AMAZING!!! Thanks guys
