Anyone using a m1903 style sling on their precision rifle?
I'm used to 'slinging up' my AR for high power matches. I wanted to try this with my bolt gun. The uncle mikes sling swivels seem on the flimsy side of things –– anyone have suggestions for a beefier swivel? I got a B&C medalist stock if it matters.
You might be able to add heavy duty swivels by adding picatinny rails or you might be able to get the swivels for an M1a or Garand. I know what you mean about the swivels being way too light weight for this type of use with a service rifle sling.
Outdoor Connection Talon Swivels are about the best there are for standard sling studs.
However, unless the Turner sling is specified for matches I would suggest you look to a TIS or TAB sling. Much quicker/easier to setup and they come with heavy duty Talon swivels.
I've got a nice Turner Saddlery black leather on my FNH, but honestly, most times I end up shooting off of the bipod.
I have a sling on my M700 but I never really used it to shoot with. I might these days since I learned how to use it while Appleseeding.
Here's some Uncle Mike's QD sling stuff for attaching to rails. http://www.unclemikes.com/products/Picatinny_Attachments.html I've never used these though.
These I do use. http://www.unclemikes.com/products/mil_spec_swivels.html much heavier than the standard versions.
you mean a 1907 pattern leather sling?
