Nylon USGI Slings?
« on: April 27, 2022, 03:34:54 PM »
I realize that many people prefer the cotton USGI sling because it is more likely to stay in place on the support arm, but I prefer the nylon slings.  Is there a possibility of sourcing these?   I bought a handful years ago, and have been unable to find a commercial source for new manufacture nylon slings.

I bought a few nylon ones before switching over to cotton.  This was the brand:

Some of their stock is out, but there are still some nylon there.

I have three usgi nylon slings from them that you are welcome to.  2 black, 1 green.

Thanks for the links
Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery
