Simple, inexpensive, lightweight carry sling of close-weave nylon webbing has a “razor”-thin, elasticized shoulder pad that absorbs shock as you walk, so you can carry your rifle all day without killing your shoulder. Pad is made of tough, 800-lb. test elastic material that won’t slip off the shoulder as you move. Can be used in for traditional or across-the-back carry. The Thumb-Loop adjustment system enables quick, easy length adjustments, while polymer swivels sewn directly to the sling ends ensure quiet operation without squeaking or scratching the stock. Knurled steel cross-bolts with screwdriver slots in the heads lock the swivels to standard sling studs.
SPECS: Nylon webbing and 800-lb. test elasticized nylon fabric, polymer hardware, black. 41" (104cm) O.A.L., 1" (2.5cm) wide web straps with 13" (33cm) long x 2" (5cm) wide shoulder pad.
If you love fine leather, fine craftsmanship and a superbly functional, useful sling, our new Competitor Plus is going to make you extremely happy! What you get is a no-compromise reproduction of the original 1907 Military Sling; the one that's become the standard among hi-power service rifle shooters and many knowledgeable hunters; the one that's sought after by collectors and restorers of pre-WWII military firearms and the one that's carried more guns, more miles on more shoulders than darn near any other. Ours has all the good stuff: 1) It's all U.S. made of the finest, oak-tanned, top grain, U.S. steer hide. 2) It's fitted with thick, forged, blued steel hooks. 3) Each hook is attached with three rivets. 4) The Keepers are stitched and fit TIGHT! Once we eliminated all the shortcomings of the current crop of '07 copies, we convinced a sling maker that folks who use their guns really do want better not cheaper. Once the maker believed, they gave us suggestions concerning the leather.
Ooohh, the leather! It's absolutely wonderful. A full heavy-weight, 9-10 ounce leather, tanned correctly for sling use to give maximum flexibility, stability and toughness without stretching or being oily. The tanning makes the Competitor Plus Sling leather what it is. The process starts with a complete hide that's shaved just enough to make it even thickness throughout. Then it's painstakingly tanned using oak tannage, NOT chromic salts. (Chromic salts cause tarnish and corrosion on any metal the leather touches.) Finally, the smooth, burnished finish which shows off the natural grain of this high-grade leather. All this time and effort means Competitor Plus Slings can bend and twist for a tight grip with no splitting or cracking, even across the holes, with no more than the barest minimum of medium tanning oil being added during the process. Your careful adjustments and precise shooting position won't be fouled up by a rubbery sling.
Each extra thick, blued steel hook is locked onto the leather with three hand-hammered, copper rivets. The extra steel keeps the hooks from bending under the extreme pressure created when you lock into position. And, the hooks fit their holes TIGHTLY…no slop to mess up a hard hold and no accidental unhookings.
Even the keepers are designed as part of a working sling. Since they absolutely must fit and grab the straps tightly, ours are skived at a taper, overlapped and then glued and stitched with 5-cord waxed linen thread. They'll hold your adjustments!
The end result is a sling that gives you so much more: more service for so much longer as a traditional field sling; more authenticity as a replacement for restorations; plus more, higher match scores by eliminating a concentration-breaking source of problems. You can spend your time glassing for game, doping the wind or paying attention to sight picture and trigger squeeze instead of fiddling with the sling.
This level of exceptional quality is a little more expensive, but we honestly believe you'll agree it's more than worth it.

We like the Biothane material that we use in our mathc slings so much that we had a service rifle sling made of the same material. Leather cracks and stretches, but the Biothane material is almost indestructible regardless of the weather or conditions. Biothane is made by fusing a polyester web inside a urethane casing which makes an extremely strong sling. This material is extremely comfortable in any shooting position and wraps around the arm perfectly. This sling is approved for Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) matches. It includes two Biothane keepers that do not move when put in place. Hooks are made of steel and are riveted on with 3 rivets. The sling measures 54 inches, which will accomodate almost all shooters. Available in black only. This is also an excellent sling for tactical shooters because the material makes the sling extremely quiet.
Constructed of military-grade nylon webbing, Blue Force Gear’s Hunting Sling is fully adjustable and easy to install, with the same quick adjustment capabilities as its military slings. A straightforward two-point carry sling, the Hunting Sling easily attaches with fully captive EZ Swivels so you never have to worry about misconfiguring the sling or losing any hardware bits.
When tightened, the Blue Force Gear Hunting Sling keeps your gun close to the body and secure for ready access, while it eliminates concern over muzzle position or the gun slipping off your shoulder. When loosened, the Hunting Sling is free enough for the user to keep the sling on and shoot comfortably.
The nylon adjuster on the Blue Force Gear Hunting Sling can be used to shorten or lengthen the sling, permitting the rifle to be shouldered without removing the sling.
Traditional leather slings are hand made from high-quality bridle leather that’s been tumbled for days with special oils and waxes for maximum flexibility and toughness in the field or at the bench. Features 38 punched holes for a variety of different length adjustments, and includes a solid brass buckle that locks tight for a secure hold that can’t slip. Brass screw fasteners keep sling loops closed for a level of security you can depend on. Available in 1" and 1¼" widths. Ching Specialty model is a 3-point sling developed by Eric Ching in cooperation with the Gunsite training school and is perfect for target shooting, competition and dangerous game hunting where fast, accurate shot placement is essential. Center strap locks around the shooter’s upper arm for rock-solid stability without using a bipod. Works like a “Deliberate” sling, but much faster to use, and once it’s preset, no further loop adjustments are necessary.

The ShadowTech Enhanced SS Loophole Precision Rifle Sling is a two-point rifle sling designed to maximize shooter stability. The SS Loophole Precision Rifle Sling is made specifically for users who shoot off of tripods or barricades.
Shooters can rapidly connect or disconnect the sling to the belt thanks to a sewn in loophole at the rear of the sling. This provides support for shooters in the sitting, kneeling, standing positions, or during helo operations.
The ShadowTech Enhanced SS Loophole Precision Rifle Sling has an added adjustment tail at the front of the sling for easier adjustment during patrol carry. This sling is catered for short barreled, precision gas-guns and primary weapon systems.
Thermoplastic rubber sling that fits any long gun is impervious to weather and easy on the shoulder.
