How to Sling Your Rifle Like Frank Proctor

How to Sling Your Rifle Like Frank Proctor

I have to admit… I have tried far too many slings than I should have on my rifles.

From the standard issue circa 1984 M16A2 Parade Sling to complex, need an engineering degree to figure out, 3 point slings to the ever popular Magpul MS2 slings… I have several of them sitting in a box in my ready room.

Some worked…. some didn’t… some worked better than others.

Enter: The Frank Proctor Way of the Gun Sling.

Denis and I recently acquired a few of these slings to evaluate as a replacement for our MS2’s that were starting to get a little worn after four years of hard use. We will be running them for a few months to see how we feel about them under use but from an initial fit and finish perspective I have come up with the following:

  1. Installation: The sling is VERY simple to put on your rifle. Almost too simple. See the video above for further. It literally took me less than five minutes.
  2. Ease of use: Once you have the sling on your gun taking up or letting out slack is a cinch. (My apologies)
  3. Comfort: For all intents and purposes it is a comfortable sling. Naturally the lighter the rifle the better as the sling is simply a strip of nylon webbing and could get uncomfortable over a long period of time without any padding. I’m not sure I would run this sling on a SPR or 308 class rifle due to the weight but in a 5.56/300 Blackout platform… its damn near perfect.


So far… so good. After attaching the sling and running some dry fire drills  I feel pretty comfortable using the Proctor Sling in any circumstance. I will do a full review after I do some running and gunning but lets just say I like it so much that I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
