Who designed the McLean DRS and Why?
With years of tactical industry experience, an active duty soldier disappointed with a generic single point sling’s unrestrained movement, created his own 2-point sling. The McLean Sling uses our Patented Quick Release Design offers the versatility of a single point sling yet offering the ability to be retained as a 2 point sling. This ability to transition from a retained position to engaging targets is unmatched by any other sling on the market.
On its own a generic single point sling offers dynamic movement with your rifle for CQC/CQB environments. It’s great for switching shoulders, shooting under cars or around barricades and even simple things such as just combat reloads or transitioning to your secondary/pistol. However, without constant positive control it is free to hit the user and makes running, or climbing next to impossible and you can forget about prisoner handling.
A generic 2-point sling can be a solution to these problems but, a generic 2-point makes it difficult for the user to switch shoulders or to even reload, because of the restrained state of the rifle.
The Quick Release Design is the best of both worlds. With the power to switch between a restrained position to unrestrained quickly, users will easily distinguish a difference. The McLean Sling can even be adjusted in its unrestrained mode to switch shoulders, increase the length of the sling, and make movement plus control much easier.
