Thread: Horribly over engineered rifle sling

    Horribly over engineered rifle sling

    I have just finished this in 3.5mm leather. I made it similar to one ordered but made the top loop too short for a Sauer.

    It's, as I said 3.5mm thick veg tanned leather. 2 1/2" wide with one inch long ends - cut from the same strip along the entire length, not attached in any way other than how nature made it. The adjustable thumb loop goes through a 3/4 inch retainer and is itself one inch wide. I've just minced about the house with it and it is comfy - but will be much more so when worn in a bit.











    All the buckles are hand rivetted on and solid brass, they'll tarnish and lose their shine, but will last for years.

    I've finished the whole thing in mink oil before assembly so it's all over it.

    It's taken me all day and considerable amounts of materials to do this so I'd like 65 PLUS postage for it please, a steal, I feel, if this is your thing.

    Thanks for looking

    Dougster is it incompatible with a Sauer 202?

    I'm not sure. The length you can adjust the top of the sling to before it hits 2 1/2 inch wide is 3 inches. Does that mean it's too short for the clearance between the legs of the sling?

    I really like this and indeed all your work dougster . Fantastic

    Thank-you. That's good of you to say.

    Very nice sling. The only thing against it in my view is the unfinished leather on the return loops at either end.

    Looks VERY well made though

    Going off to be tried.

    I am making to order gents, so if you'd like something not specifically like that - ask away.

    Going to Scotland and Wales for ten days tomorrow, back on the 18th.

    can we have a video of you "mincing about the house with it" to prove your claims?
