    Can anyone recommend a really good rifle sling? Lately I've been seeing more and more of them with the infamous "Made in China" tag. I'd like to find a nice one that's made in the USA of possible?
    Looking for a tactical sling , no leather....multi, safari or single point.

    Any leads? Thanks.

    The irony would be to put it on a Chinese weapon.

    Good man to deal with and responsive to contact.

    Order direct if you can. He may give you distributors names also.

    I like the Israeli 2-point slings, which usually average about $15 + shipping on Ebay.

    I have a Vickers Blue Force on my Noveske, which is better, but I can't afford to put $45-60 slings on every rifle I own!

    ... Magpul, Vickers or SKT;

    Another thought: can you use swivels?

    Magpul MS4 for a great 2 point sling, which can also convert to single point.
    Vickers Blue Force: As foreignsamurai attests, Vickers can be pricey, if you like them and want a Vickers Blue Force on all.

    Worth looking at for nylon ...

    +1 on the Vickers Blue Force sling. I have one (non-padded) and love the sling.

    I second the Blue Force, but prefer the padded.

    I bought one of these and fell in love with it. And I bought 4 more for my other .22's and .17's. I love the simplicity and cheapness of them.

    I can't recall the last time I bought a sling. I buy bulk hardware and build my own. You get exactly what you want every time for much less.
