If you like quality rifle slings, I recommend http://www.ebay.ca/itm/GENUINE-LEATHER- ... 1e7cb0a9ea

They look nice and are low cost shipped from Ukraine.

Any sporting goods store will have slings - anywhere in Canada. If you need on-line shopping, try wholesalesports.com - or cabalas.com

Daryl, I bet those are handmade vs stamped out at a factory in China! Free shipping to boot! :D

HarryEClark,
Nice find. That is actually woven not just stamped with the basket weave.
It would be nice to get a close look at an actual for quality of leather, stitching and hardware but from what they post plus free shipping that looks like a find. I woudl doubt it is a craftsperson aloen but a shop with who knows what labour costs but withjout gettign all poitacl here I liek the look.
(promo here) I am currently working on some slings, stock/butt covers/pads for some of my rifles and will posting soon. I can tell you I could maybe get close to that price perhaps for hand made sling with some custome choices..but free shipping (international!)..never get there.
If you get one post a review and some detail shots.
I like the weave and may borrow that for an experiment.
I may order oen and disect it!

This is the fourth one of these I have got. I think they are quality, all nicely finished, good hardware, two layers of leather in the top section, no lumps on the back because of weave, great thumb loop.

Thanks Rick.

Now I need to get to the bench and put my leather where my mouth is.

As an open set of sling questions....do you think most prefer the "cobra" style (padded or not) or straight strap or straight strap the a rectangular pad slipped over the strap?

I would think if the shooter uses the sling as shooting aid would niot want padded and to the extreme may want a military or whelen type strap/loop?

While if they are more hiker/shooters and carry on the shoulder for longer periods padded would sure help with a heavier gun and they would jsut try a 'hasty sling' type hold if necessary. I read soemwhere to that wooden stocks are better for this than composite due to sideway flex.

Anyhow I guess that is why a sling is not a sling is not a sling....depends on a lot of factors of the shooters needs and weapon.

Maybe slings would be a good thread (lots of different views I know!) but I will search to see if there is one already?
