I have long been a fan of the Vicker’s Sling and Blue Force Gear never disappoints, but they have outdone themselves this time. With twelve color choices for sling and pull tab, hardware choices, fourteen attachment options, padded or un-padded and sewing modifications, if you cannot find your perfect sling for function and fashion here, it does not exist.
For non-typical applications like shotguns, AR pistols and Short Barrelled Rifles, I find that most standard slings need some tweaks to make them work. Mounting hardware and length requirements can be very different. With the sling builder, you get exactly what you need in your precise choice of colors.
When you go to the link, you start with a ghost image of a white sling. As you click on the choice boxes selecting options, you end up with an image of YOUR custom made sling. Mine showed up in the mail two days later.
There are separate links for padded and non-padded:
About Blue Force Gear in their own words:
Since our beginning in 2004, we strive for excellence in all we do and to exemplify that excellence in our products and design. We are devoted to those we serve to deliver innovative gear with superior quality.
Blue Force Gear is not satisfied with making the same thing as everyone else – merely changing the color or style. We design by a code of advancement – if we can’t make something better than what is currently available, we don’t make it. By continually innovating, our products will always be different.
We are proud to have pioneered technological innovations that have revolutionized load carriage and weapon carrying establishing the world’s standard in weapon slings and the world’s lightest, MOLLE compatible load carriage.
Of course we are not stopping there. We are continually improving our gear lineup and looking for more ways to improve the tactical gear industry and ultimately the warriors here at home and worldwide.
