Hey guys I'm very new to paintball and I got an mr1 for x-mas from my wife. I have already chopped the top off the stock and I have a remote line. I was curious if any of you has a suggestion for an inexpensive sling so that I dont have to haul this outstanding marker through the woods all day just in my hands. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i had one for a whil JT made it it was a 3 point sling it was nice but with my style of play (running around like a chicken with its head cut off shooting everybody in my path t o hell and back) it kinda got in the way so u sorta need to fing ur style of play and if thats wat u want i suggest a 3 point sling becasue there easy to put on attach to ur self and take off in teh heat of battle

If you want a cheaper way, here it is: take the sling of any unused bag, suitcase or other storing bag. Thats the sling, now to attach it to the gun, here's the steps: Take black duct tape and cut 2 bands 10 inches long 1 inch wide, and roll the first around the barrel, glue side away from barrel in order to protect your barrel from the glue of the second duct tape band. Apply a metal keyring on the glue side of the tape and roll the second duct tape band glue side toward barrel, inserting the tape inside the keyring at each roll you apply. Add more band to satisfy your solidity over flexibility needs.
Repeat procedure around the lower frame of the stock for the second attachment point.
It may sound like a joke but i really did this last summer and it worked great.
Thats the ghetto way.
