The TAB GEAR Rapid Adjust Sling (RAS) is a purpose build sniper sling from ground up to allow the operator to carry and use the rifle in various positions.
The rear section of the sling is a 5" section of webbing that is three layers of triple stitched material and
is stiff enough to use as a hasty rear support.
The center is where the shooter adjusts the sling for the carry length.
It can be removed and connected to itself for easy storage allowing the remaining two sections of the sling
to attach like a carry strap with shooting loop still in place.
The reasons for the two buckles are two fold,
first it allows the shooter to get out of the sling quickly because regardless of how you sling your rifle
there is an accessible buckle you can unclip in order to get the rifle into action quickly.
Second it is designed to allow the removal of a rifle from an injured soldier in case he is incapacitated.
The front is made of shooters loop and Rapid Adjust System.
The shooters loop simply used to shoot slung up. This can be done connected to the rest of the sling or not.
It has a slider that can move very easily to lock down the loop on the shooters arm.
The front of the Shooters loop is the Rapid Adjust System used to adjust the length
on the fly while in different shooting positions.
Until now the shooter has been limited in his ability to adjust the sling for slung up positions.
You had to mark your sling for different positions and it was time consuming to go from one position to another.
Usually you would setup your sling for one position and just live with it in any other position.
The RAS has solved this problem with the Rapid Adjust buckle that is in between the shooters loop and front swivel.
The critical adjustment feature of the RAS sling is to make sure that the Rapid Adjust Buckle is adjusted
so that the shooter can easily reach the straps to tighten and loosen the sling when in a shooting position.
This model of TAB GEAR RAS Sling uses AustriAlpin Elite Cobra buckle system rated at 4000 pounds.
UNCONVENTIONAL DEPLOYMENT METHODS
If a right handed shooter carries the RAS rifle slung muzzle down in the front of the body from
the right shoulder it is very simple to just drop down into a shooting position and reach up and tighten the sling.
Imagine that instead of your arm being in the shooting loop, now your whole body is in the loop and the rifle is tightened down.
This method is much quicker than inserting the arm into the loop and just as stable.
When shooting off of a barricade or structure keep the rifle slung in front and quickly place the rifle on
the structure and tighten up the sling. Now when you reach back with your support arm to grip the butt of the rifle
you can place your elbow on the sling and exert downward pressure on the sling which tightens the sling into the barricade and
dramatically lessens movement in the scope.
