Best Tactical Rifle Bungee Sling With Jedi Buckle

Many shooters struggle with a loose sling that causes the gun to hit their legs during movement...unless they've got hands on the gun. A bungee 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.

    Great sling but could be improved

    Posted by Brian on Aug 11th 2023

    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.

    Great slings!

    Posted by Aleksandar Shopov on Jun 29th 2023

    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.

    Great upper tier sling

    Posted by Marcus on May 28th 2023

    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

    WPS bungee sling

    Posted by Gary L. on Mar 3rd 2023

    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++++++

    Run and Gun Approved

    Posted by SCOTT BERGER on Feb 28th 2023

    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

    Great Sling

    Posted by George B on Dec 19th 2022

    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!!

    WPS Rifle Sling

    Posted by Sean on Dec 13th 2022

    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.
