How the Cross Transtion Buckle works:
With the XTB feature the sling can be used exactly like a conventional 2 point or 3 point sling, allowing all of the same carry options. The XTB allows the operator to rapidly and quietly create slack that allows for easy left/right shoulder transitions. It takes only one free hand to flip open the XTB which releases the 3rd point of the sling, letting it slide freely along the sling and allowing the operator extend and mount on the opposite shoulder. The sling remains attached to the operator and the weapon can still be "left hanging" should there be a need to transition to a secondary weapon. This free sliding XTB is also used to configure the sling for a 2 point carry. Re-locking the XTB can be done quickly and silently with just one hand needed. The XTB can also be used to adjust for proper and comfortable fit for the operator. And should there ever be a need to rapidly separate the weapon from the operator, the quick release buckles does the job efficiently. The sling is constructed of heavyweight standard 1.25" width nylon.
Without the XTB and Quick Release feature, the Slings Only Patrol sling is a fully functional 3 point sling. No additional hardware is needed. Comes fully assembled and ready to install. Usually ships the next business day.
