    The strap on an AK is really just a carry strap. A target sling is not connected at the rear. The carry strap can be used as a sling but I have found it can throw you off more than help. For a field gun, the strap should be on because you may have to use both hands. Also its easier to switch to your handgun if you have a way to secure the rifle. The problem I have with the standard sling is that the front snap beats the hell out of the finish. Other than that its OK.

    A sling is a must when you need to reload a mag while in motion or when you take out your side arm. You will not want to just set your rifle down to reload or placing shots with a handgun.

    SLING ON!!!

    This is a favorite arguement of me my buddy. I personally do not want the sling to get in the way when I am doing my oiling and cleaning. I would prefer if the sling hooks didn't take the blue off of my minty rifles.

    Some on, some off.
    I hate for the hook and buckle to scuff the finish.
    I like the chinese slings.........minimal damage.

    I like slings (carry straps) on all of mine - That way I can carry more with me (4 pistols 2belt - 2 shoulder, backpack for ammo, long gun on each shoulder and each hand)!
