    Sling swivels

    I have a niggeloh backpack rifle sling and one of the swivels I used has started to squeak and I can't get it to stop. I am going to get a new set but the webbing straps are very narrow on these slings. To that end can anyone recommend a set that are suitable, preferably narrower than 1".

    Thanks

    There was a thread a while ago on this very problem. I put copper grease on mine to sort the problem. Also was looking for sub 1" and didn't have any joy.

    I emailed niggeloh direct but am still waiting for a reply, will let you know if they get back to me.

    Still looking. Got an email back for niggeloh to say that the straps are 20mm wide but not recommending a swivel for it. So if anyone can recommend/point me in the direction of a set of quick release sling swivels that are 20mm wide it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Another reason I make my slings that marry oversize leather to a set of those Uncle Mikes swivels that allow the leather to be an interference fit with the stud when closed.

    I find it's the D ring where the two straps meet that is the issue. I keep mine grease with silicon gel to alleviate the problem.

    Thanks for the link they are just what I want but I'm not sure I'm ready to pay that much, I only paid 36 for the sling inc postage

    As others have said, it was the leather on the d ring that was squeaking. Some Vaseline sorted it on mine. Best of luck.
