Tyr Tactical – Sling Ding

Developed by 22-year US Army Special Operations veteran Pat McNamara, Tyr Tactical’s Sling Ding is a more versatile alternative to a standard vertical fore grip. The Sling Ding affords more positions for the operator’s hand than a vertical fore grip, assists in elevating the weapon’s muzzle off the shooting platform, and facilitates a smaller profile when shooting around corners or barricades.

The Sling Ding is constructed from heavy duty schedule 80 PVC and attaches to any rail system that accepts a push button quick release sling swivel. It attaches between the weapon and any 1.25″ or narrower sling. The Sling Ding can be painted or textured by the end user to match any desired camo pattern.

This Thursday, October 17th, through Monday, October 21st, Tyr Tactical is offering the Sling Ding for purchase on their website. This will be the only opportunity to get a hold of a Sling Ding until their official release on January 1st, 2014.

Additionally, Tyr Tactical will be present at the 2013 ATOA Conference, booth #21, October 17th-18th. Pat McNamara will be a guest speaker at the event.

    I also am confused about what this product is supposed to accomplish. I guess I’ll have to see it in use.

    Having run a class with Pat, he does not run a vfg on his rifles, I know that he prefers to grasp the forward portion of his sling, right up against the gun, when working barriers/etc. I would imagine that this is designed around that type of sling hold.

    I ran a vfg in the class, and didn’t really give his style a try, but wouldn’t knock it, until I have run it.

    He does not have an issue with his times, or groupings 😉

    I’m not going to adopt or throw the baby out with the bathwater until I see Pat M. shoot a Youtube vid that shows how he uses it.

    As always, I’m going to make it a point not to read the comments on that vid or any other on Youtube.

  10. We have posted some more images hand positions for the Sling Ding. We filming a Youtube video today with Pat explaining it’s uses.
