While the materials are top notch, and the fit and finish is excellent, this sling system just does not work. I spent allot of time on the phone with customer service trying to get the sling system to sit secure and hold onto my rifle in real hiking conditions, but it just wouldnt work. Even the customer service rep agreed that there were some challenges with getting the sling system to work for allot of customers.
In my view, something like this needs to work, out of the box. It should not take hours of trial and error getting the sling fit and ready for use. Sorry Mystery Ranch, I am huge fan of your products, but this one should be discontinued.
This has made hunting so much more enjoyable. I just got tired of holding up my sling the entire time I was out hunting and I like to put in miles during the day. It completely frees up my hands so that I can use trekking poles and my binoculars with ease. This IS the sling for you. My dad and brother bought different hands free slings and are switching to the Mystery Ranch Quick Draw, its the best!
On a side note, Mystery Ranch customer service is top notch. Anything I have had questions or concerns about has been addressed and taken care of immediately. What a great company.
While I can still make my rifle fall off my shoulder with this sling on, I find it stays quite secure. I used it elk hunting and antelope hunting last fall and was so thankful to have it. Climbing up and over deadfall and hills elk hunting would have been hellish without this sling. The release works great and is so easy and I got the rifle off fast to shoot my elk. It’s not perfect but I think if the rifle was more secure, the quick-draw part would be totally lost. Overall I highly recommend it!
Bought this going into last hunting season with high hopes of performance. Took me awhile to figure out how to switch the attachment so I come wear it on my preferred shoulder. A great idea with poor execution. Rifle falls off no matter how it is adjusted. Biggest reason I can see is the material used for the strap slips off. Mainly due to contacting the pack shoulder straps. Since it’s meant to be worn with the pack I’m trying to figure why this got past the design team. The only part of this entire system I use is the docking station. I use my rubberized rifle strap and the dock helps hold the rifle more secure. I then use my packs cheat clip at times to lock in things better. The sling just doesn’t do the job. You will damage your rifle if you continue to use. Sorry mystery ranch. Love your packs I own a marshal a pintler and a mule.
I have multiple MR packs, accessories, and am a big fan and recommend their products to all hunters. This has been my only disappointing purchase to-date.
While this is well constructed and durable like all MR products I've owned, I had hoped this would solve the age-old issue of a rifle sling slipping while wearing a full pack and having to readjust it regularly. Unfortunately it made matters worse for me. I wore it for rifle opener after testing it in my garage. I should've field tested it first...
When leaning forward to hike up a steep hill, the top of the rifle would swing right off my shoulder. After the 10th time, I ended up just holding my hand on the sling the entire 12mile day... frustrating considering the price-point on this vs. other hands-free sling alternatives on the market.
Bought this right before my Colorado trip hoping it would be self explanatory on hooking up. Came with no instructions and didn’t didn’t have the string for releasing the magnetic chest strap. Watched serval YouTube videos on how to install. Each one was different from the other on where to place the butt stock holder on waist belt. After figuring it out by trail and error it worked out just fine. And instructions and string for chest strap and you’ve nailed it
I just used this sling on my 3rd season rifle elk hunt in CO. We hiked in really nasty terrain, and I had no issues with adjustment or it falling off my shoulder. I purchased a Grimlock D-Ring to attach the sling to my Mystery Ranch Cabinet pack. I loved how my rifle was essentially locked to my side all day. This sling is so much better than the alternatives of just a sling. Excited to use it for our upcoming late season elk hunt and many elk hunts in future years!
I bought this to merry to my Metcalf pack, the sling is alright once you get it adjusted where you need it to be,but the downfall of this product is the part that is supposed to hold the butt of the rifle in place. It will not hold the rifle if u bend or turn or duck under something. I just finished a week in the woods with it and ended up reaching back hold the rifle butt most of the trip. Very frustrating! Anyone who gives this 5 stars is walking around the outside of their house wishing they were out hunting!! I wish MR would put a little more R and D into all of the hunting accessories.
I decided to try this simply because I liked the idea and really the opinion are all over the place. I love the idea but fall into the camp of it could be better. With really mellow walking it stays in place but when glassing or have to climb up steeper hills I found it likes to slip of the shoulder. Before Everyone bashed me for “not” installing it right I would like you to know it is installed as per the directions. My guess is the certain configurations of bag, gun, and human shoulders contribute to it working for some note than others. The butt stock loop is nice and the quick release chest strap is good to but all in all it didn’t seem to be a great fit for me.
Hands down this product rocks!! It’s exactly the type of sling looking for. Just finished an elk hunt in mountian of Colorado it performed flawless! If you have a negative review you did not set it up corrrct you! Buying a second sling for a buddy who tried to buy mine on the mountian side!
This is a great sling. The hardware and construction are top notch. And the two piece design with the waist belt hook really makes it secure. The sling itself works just like it is advertised. Where I ran into issues is with my Metcalf and the load lifting straps. Because of the position of the load lifting straps the sling cannot fit all the way onto the backpack shoulder strap as it rolls over the shoulder, leaving it to ride on your shoulder just off the side of the shoulder strap. The sling still held its position and rode securely it just wasn't quite as comfortable as with my pack without load lifters. Where this sling shines is on packs that do not have the tall load lifters, such as the Front, Divide, and Scapegoat 25 or any other pack with a descent sized waist belt and no load lifters.
I read the reviews, both Negative an Positive, and decided to try based upon Mystery Ranch products always performing as advertised. The reviews that state "the sling will not stay on the shoulder" must be due to improper installation, or use. The magnetic clip being properly attached and used, makes it virtually impossible for the the sling to slide off the shoulder. The sling is both comfortable when used while wearing my pack, or just slinging my rifle without the pack.
This sling will simply not hold a rifle on your shoulder. Itâll slide right off as soon as you move. Iâve tried adjusting the sling tighter and looser, tried with different guns, tried with different MR packs, tried with butt stock holder all the way back towards the pack and forward at the 3 oâclock position, and it doesnât work in any configuration.
The idea is great but the product is poor. Rifle is constantly falling off my shoulder as there is no friction between the sling and your shoulder. When my pack (Cabinet is packed, itâs almost impossible to get the butt of the rifle into the holder on the belt. Contacted MR and was told it wansnt necessarily designed to be used with large rifles that have a bipod in them. So I guess if you are hunting with a .22 this should work great. I wonât recommend this to anyone.
I love the idea of this sling but it just doesn't work. I'm sure I could jimmy rig it to kind of work but for the price it's not worth it. I will be returning it to the retailer. If you are standing up straight it stays fine but as soon as you bend or swing a little the rifle falls right off your shoulder leaving you with having to hold the sling on your shoulder just the same as you would any normal sling. Not a true hands free design. I have the kifaru gun bearer which is a hands free design just not a huge fan of having the rifle under my arm pit, makes it awkward to glass so I was way excited to try this so the rifle has on my back out of the way. The quick release fidlock is awesome, hope that mystery ranch can perfect the rest of it.
