Thread: Leather rifle sling maker

    Leather rifle sling maker

    Hi guys

    anyone out there who makes leather rifle slings,

    ideally would like a decent bridle leather with buckles either end with a tie on leather slip over the buckles to avoid scratches and noise etc, red or brown would suffice

    needs to be soft but strong, looking for four or five possibly if the price is right, width of strap through fixing eye would differ on two of them as the fittings are around 15 mm not very wide

    cheers

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Initially I commission Dougster for a leather sling, but understanding he did canvass too, opted for one of those instead:







    I've now had two knives, the sling and two leather belt's off Dougster. The quality of his products and his service is faultless, I can't recommend highly enough

    Ok, buy British if you can, but if you can't find what you are looking for in the UK try Andys Leather (USA)
    I have just bought a Ching Sling from him- made to specification, prompt service, fast delivery.

    I make the finest rifle slings in the World.

    Sadly only those of a Ray Mears-like annual income might afford one.

    That's a beautiful knife, and slings.
    If you can buy in locally, buy domestically, and buy from your own circle, that is the best.

    I own some leather and canvas slings, from England, but purchased from Jeff's Outfitters ( USA). He carries traditional leather cartridge wallets, slings, cases, slips, field furniture, etc. A leather sling with leather covered hardware is handsome, quiet, and protects a fine stock.

    While shopping for a leather case for my vintage scope in claw mounts, I found Trader Keith's.
