Slings for MG100

Hey all,
So I'm very new to magfed paintball. I left "Speedball" for mech and magfed.
I bought a MG100, but I'm looking for a sling to fit this kit. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks again!

Are you running a belt or chest rig/vest?

Is your tank directly on the marker or using a remote line?

Chest rig. Tank on the marker using the PE PWR Stock.

Thanks

Ok, there are short single-point loops that you can use to hang the marker on your chest rig with a buckle to detach:

Or something like the Magpul MS3 that can hang across your body and be either a single or two point sling:
https://magpul.com/ms3-sling-gen-2.h...obal_color=118

If you want to put one attachment point on the stock and one on the handguard somewhere, that can give you an option of something that you can strap/bungee it closer to your body for running around with your hands free, but still ready to use. If you run it super light and just want it to stay on your body while not in active use or in staging then a simpler single point is probably what I recommend. I wish I could find knockoffs for super super cheap somewhere, as it can be worth a try to see if it functions the way you want before buying the nicer gear.

If you want to get really fancy, there are things like this that range in price from the cheaper ones designed for airsoft to a cross-platform system I saw at a tradeshow once but can't seem to find again.

I'm looking at putting one of the QD points on mine from Magpul, and then running a loop sling. Problem is that it looks like a lot of places are out of stock on both parts. You'd almost think people were buying up gun bits or something lately.

I bought a cheap sling with QD off of EBAY. The problem I had is the QD doesn't hold. It slips out of the hole (in the marker) A LOT. I am not sure is my QD on the sling is slightly undersized or if the hole is slightly oversized. I have not tried another sling but walking around and having the gun fall to the ground A LOT kinda sucks.

That's partially where I was at, too. I figured I could cheap out, since I really don't want to put ANOTHER hundred bucks into a niche gun in my arsenal (magazines, optic, assorted accessories, damn!), but I don't want the thing coming loose from its sling during a game. Or the long walk from insertion to the fight.

I'm currently running a Proctor sling on my MCS 468. I think it would work for MG100 especially if you had the stock. Sling is very minimalist attachment is via paracord, so very quiet. Not sure what your budget is but these can be had for $45.
