Phantom sling

I am a scenario player who uses a phantom. I have the problem of tired arms after lugging my phantom around for a day. Does anyone use a sling with their phantom? If so, post some pics or describe where you attach it. I need some ideas.

I didn't know it was possible to "lug" a Phantom around. They aren't that heavy. But I guess after a day of play... Just struck me as funny.

I don't have sling advice for you, so I'll stop cluttering your thread.

I was thinking the same thing...most people dont like Phantoms becuase they are too light.

You could get a lanyard style sling. No links..

Or a holster.

And yeah... its kinda hard to lug a phantom. Its more just an annoyance to be holding it. Sometimes you need that hand to scratch an itch..

It really depends on his set-up. I've seen some Phantoms that aren't very light after their owners get done with it...

I'll occasionally carry mine with a 3 point sling, of course that's with an 18" barrel and t-stock on it, and it's more so I can shoot a pistol comfortably than to relieve weight. If you're having trouble with a stock class feed, 12g Phantom with a standard barrel and no stock...time to hit the gym. You can get the slings in a type where a loop slips over your barrel, and have a velcro/clip on the rear which works will wrap around a stock. Think mine came from SpecOps.

If this was Sloonan's VM Tommy Gun I would understand, unless you only weigh 80lbs. The whole point of getting a Phantom I though was because they are light. A sling with the velcro loop attachments may work or you could drill the pump handle.

It is not so much that the weight is some much to handle. I usually play the front or medic. Which means I need to run with the gun a lot. I hate trying to cradle mine phantom in my arms while running. But I wanted to know if anyone has tried to put a sling on their phantom and has that seemed to get in the way of the pump. I use a 12 oz and 100 rnd hopper for the long games.

I don't know, Ion are about the same weight. Don't think many people bought one of those because it was light?

I also play scenarios pretty much exclusively. I wear a tactical vest that has "D" rings on the shoulders. I use a single point sling that has spring clips on both ends. I have a small piece of parachute rope with loops on both ends. I slip one loop through the other and around the grip between the top of the grip panels and the back of the trigger guard.

Then I just snap the sling on and I'm good to go. With a 100 round hopper and stock, that will balance the phantom to hang in the front just above the waste. Gives me the use of both hands. Keeps the hopper level so that I can load it without hanging on to it, or worry about what might still be in there dumping on the ground. Very very useful.

Find a lonestar grip, put a ring through the bottom hole SL-68 style and run with a single attachment point with a quick disconnect carabiner.
