Magpul Rifleman Loop Sling

Building on the heritage and proven performance of Magpul’s MS Sling series, the Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is a durable, lightweight, and affordable shooting aid and retention device. Combining the best features of Rhodesian and 1907 match-style slings, the RLS was created with Magpul’s famous proprietary nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware.


As a Standard Weapon Sling
In a retention role, the RLS serves dutifully as an unobtrusive weapon sling and retention device, securely keeping the rifle tucked behind the shoulder.


As a Stabilized Shooting Aid
When called upon, the RLS is rapidly employed with the adjustable forward loop gripping the Rifleman’s support arm, locking in a steady shooting position and firmly planting the rifle butt against the shoulder.

The Webbing
At the core of the RLS lies Magpul’s proprietary chafe-resistant 1 ¼” nylon mesh webbing. Its tubular construction eliminates harsh edges that can rub or snag and provides double layers of cushioned comfort against the end user while shouldered. During employment, the strap’s smooth texture remains comfortable, even when torqued against the user’s arm. Like all Magpul slings, colored webbing is NIR treated to reduce infrared signature.


The Hardware
The Magpul RLS features lightweight reinforced high-strength injection-molded polymer hardware, and a proprietary sling keeper that leaves no tails or loose straps, eliminating snag hazards and distractions.

Lightweight and Durable
The Magpul RLS was designed with mobility in mind. At a mere 4.4 oz, the optimized weight of the RLS doesn’t add unnecessary ounces to the rifle and weighs less than many competing slings and straps. Like all Magpul slings, the RLS has been extensively tested to its limit to ensure reliability and performance in wet, dry, and sandy conditions, to include load and drop testing. It’s been hiked with, biked with, swam, climbed, hunted and shot (a lot) with in a variety of field conditions.

Versatile and Affordable
The RLS price point offers more value and function than almost any other comparable sling on the market. At $19.95, it offers a substantial advantage to the rifleman for the money. Whether on a shooting range or mountain range, the RLS performs excellent on almost any rifle configuration and caliber combination. The highly-configurable RLS accepts all Magpul 1 ¼” sling accessories as well as most third party 1 ¼” sling attachments.

Available in Black or Coyote.

  1. Hmmm.

    Where have I seen such a sling before? Oh, yes. The Rhodesian Sling designed by Andy Langlois. The one from The Wilderness is in nylon and even pays Andy a royalty. Magpul didn’t even have the courtesy of giving Andy a heads up.


    Nice sling but I think I’ll get the one that recognizes the originator.

    • SSD says:

      I just want to make sure I’ve got the facts clear. Is it named the Rhodesian because it was a type common to Rhodesia? Or is Andy Langlous Rhodesian and invented it?

      • Andy Langlois is as American as you and I. He’s originally from New England where he served in law enforcement for many years doing leather work on the side. He now lives in western North Carolina.

        He called his sling the Rhodesian because it was similar to ones that had been used in Rhodesia. I confirmed this with him a couple of days ago.

        The Rhodesian Sling was similar to the Ching Sling but with only two attachment points instead of the normal three of the Ching Sling. Andy is well known as the provider of leather Ching Slings for those interested in Col. Jeff Cooper’s Scout Rifle concept. He also has the Scout Rifle Forum.
