The ASP-V is the first and only fully adjustable rig mounted single point sling that requires no torso loop. It is a specialized unit that mounts directly to an LBV / Plate Carrier. It allows the weapon to hang at a height much higher than previously thought possible and can be deployed lighting fast to be shouldered either strong or weak side.
The ASP-V builds on the modularity of the extremely popular ASP Traditional Sling and allows several different attachment methods. It can be attached via a shoulder mounted D-Ring, through Pals / Molle webbing as well as directly to a shoulder strap. It readily accepts all current weapon attachment stubs such as our auxiliary stub, stock stub and H&K stub to insure compatibility with a wide array of weapon platforms.Components
Below is an illustration highlighting the key components of the system followed by descriptions of the components.
- Attachment Loop:
The attachment loop is used to secure the ASP-V to your rig. Ideally you would attache it via a shoulder mounted d-ring. However, it can also be mounted directly around a shoulder strap & even directly through your Pals / Molle webbing.
Controls the height of hang for your weapon by limiting the webbing's movement to a single direction. To raise the weapon to a patrol / ready position, simply pull the rip cord ( see item 3 ). To deploy the weapon, for shouldering either strong or weak side, lift the ladder-loc using the thumb on your weak hand while pushing out with your strong hand on the weapon's grip.
- Rip cord:
Used to adjust weapon hang on the fly. The rip cord provides a double layer of webbing with a series of box stitches terminated in a d-ring to provide a stout and easy to use mechanism for placing the weapon back in a patrol / ready position.
Quick detach point for the weapon. The QDP enables the user to quickly detach the weapon from the ASP-V should the need arise. It also accomodates an infinite number of weapon attachment stubs ( due to the modular nature of our products ) to ensure compatibility across a multitude of weapon platforms.
- Auxiliary Stub:
The default weapon attachment stub that will ship with the ASP-V. The auxiliary stub is the stub of choice for the AR platform. It provides a noise free, rock solid mounting solution. When coupled with our SPRE sling mounts, you have the absolute lowest profile combination on the market.

- MIL-VT-295 #69 Bonded nylon thread
- Double box stitch construction
- Made in the USA!
Although the ASP-V comes pre-assembled and comes packaged with one auxiliary stub to connect to your weapon, you will still need a near receiver mounting solution. If your weapon is not currently outfitted with a near receiver sling loop, you will need to purchase one. Your weapon's platform, configuration and the intended weapon attachement stub will dictate which if any sling loop is required.
