Fully adjustable rifle sling pattern?

6 posts in this topic

I've searched the forum and haven't come up with what I'm looking for. I want to make a basic two piece rifle sling, the kind that has an adjustment for your arm to go through and an adjustment for your hand to go through. All that I've seen are made in two pieces with a frog on the back piece that lets you cinch it up for storage. Anybody got a pattern?

Paul, not quite sure of what your looking for, especially the hand part.This pattern is a two piece design that adjusts from the bottom sling swivel using chicago screws.I have the thumb loop on this one riveted but multiple holes could be punched and attached via chicago screws.Dave

That looks really good but it's a different style that I was thinking. Military rifles used to be issued with the type I'm intersted in, and most target shooters still use them. The sling I want to make makes two loops, one to put your left arm through and the other your hand. That braces the rifle to keep the left arm from moving. I've found pics online, but no plans.

Did you happen to find this link http://www.rollanet.org/~stacyw/rifle_sling_home_page.htm

I searched all kinds of stuff before getting some help from David. You may not find the exact pattern but you may get en0ough from there to be able to build one.

I clicked through the page and did find some that were the type I'm looking for. It's a simple piece and I can figure it out I'm sure. It would just be easier to start with a worked out pattern that I know is good from the beginning.

I know exactly what you are talking about. Have you had any luck yet, progress. the big box stores have had nylon ones for $10ish that are good for patterns and brownells has their latigo for $50ish. The nylon ones are good as a pattern and perfectly serviceable. let me know, I'll lend any help (pic ect) if I can, I have several to choose from and have made a few in the past but no pattern, just straps, rings, and chicago screws.
