The last time I saw Dougster he was packing all his stuff up for the move up to the Highlands. Send him a PM PM & register your interest - He may be tempted to get his tools out for you - or wait & use some bailer twine till he is up & running again in his new home in a couple of months.
Hello Jason! I'd pefer a full leather one. Is your friend who made the accessories for my 7mm-08 still in business? Those items were excellent. But I don't think I need as substantial a sling for the drilling, it would look wrong. Something slim and minimalist. The swivels are narrower too, I need to measure them.
or try ian atkinson.net usually does knives belts wallets etc, ps just picked one up on ebay earlier all leather with swivels s/h as new 10.00 quid so its worth looking about as ive never bought off ebay or ever wished to,all i need now is the rifle to go with it,atb doug,
I posted this last year to someone else asking about a leather sling:
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'sOutfitters ( 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. http://www.jeffsoutfitters.com/store.aspx?categoryid=62
