Särmä TST 2P-RK Quick-Adjust Rifle Sling
A simple and rugged 2-point Quick-Adjust Sling - keep it simple stupid, but make it work! Webbing ends allow a direct fit to most AK-variants, can be used with virtually any rifle or carbine with separate clips and hooks.
The 2-point quick-adjust sling has become commonly regarded as the better sling compared to 3-point contraptions. Single-point slings still have their small niche, good for them. The 2P-RK sling can be tightened with just one pull of the support hand to provide stability in your shooting position, whether you're standing, kneeling or prone. It also helps you carry the rifle on your back without having it swing around, yet it can be retrieved to a ready position with haste.
Combat-worthy construction and functionality
The front attachment is made from 25 mm (1") webbing. It can be wiggled and weaved through 20 mm wide sling loops and AK front mounts with some effort and is directly compatible with the HK Hook, ITW Clash and QD swivels.
The rear and main part of the sling is made from thicker and softer 30 mm (1.25") tubular webbing and fits through 25 mm (1") and larger loops and swivels. The sling is very comfortable to wear compared to regular webbing straps.
The quick-adjustment is made from two welded steel D-rings with a black anti-corrosive coating. It is as functional and reliable as it is simple. Pulling the loop at the free end shortens the sling 1:1 as much as you pull (not half as in enclosed slings), tugging the grip on one of the D-rings releases the grip allowing the sling to extend.

How to mount the sling
The mounting style and adjustment depend on your firearm, sling attachment points as well as your body type, clothing and gear. If you are planning to use the sling with thick clothes and body armour, consider this when adjusting.
The front part is best left as long as it is, most users will find that setting correct. Just weave the free end through the sling loop and back into the Tri-Glide buckle.
The rear part should be just long enough that you can comfortably switch shoulders with the quick-adjustment extended. Install initially with one buckle and mind the second one after you're happy.
After confirming that your settings are good and the sling works as intended, you may want to cut and burn any excess length. The rear part of the sling has an extra Tri-Glide buckle, however, and we suggest leaving some room for adjustment.
InRangeTV instructional video
Karl and Ian demonstrate very thoroughly how to use this kind of slings in various ways and cover adjustment tips as well. It might be a good idea to have your rifle and sling handy for this and prepare to spend 20 minutes.

No idea what Särmä means in Finnspeak but in my dictionary it spells AWESOME.
