Ever go to the local sporting goods store looking for a simple, high quality leather sling only to find foreign made junk or neoprene this and nylon that? That was my experience, so I decided to make my own slings and make them available to every hunter with just a few clicks of the mouse!
Each sling is cut, punched, and assembled by hand in my Celina, Texas workshop.
- Full Grain Latigo Leather construction - strong & flexible!
- Antique Brass Chicago Screw adjustment along the entire length!
- 1" OR 1 1/4" wide
- OAL ~ 49"
- Max installed length ~ 40.5" (see size, fit & use notes below)
- 4 Chicago Screws & washers included
- Sling swivels not included
- Standard lead time to ship is 4-6 weeks. Please see lead time & policy page for current lead times to ship.
Size, fit & use:
Mason Leather Latigo Leather Rifle/Shotgun Slings have an approximate maximum installed length of 40.5", this allows plenty of adjustment to fit most rifles and hunters. For example, I am 6'2" tall & 260 lbs, a bigger ol' boy, and the length is more than plenty for slinging my Winchester M70 over my shoulder while wearing a heavy coat. Unless you are over 6'6" tall and/or 350+ lbs, you should have no issues on rifles.
Full size shotguns typically have a much longer distance between sling studs than rifles. If mounting to a full size shotgun, there will not be as much available adjustment. I'm 6'2" tall & 260 lbs, and the length is enough for me on my 12 gauge Mossberg 500 at its longest setting. Unless you are over 6'3" tall and/or 275+ lbs, you should have no issues on shotguns unless you like a very loose setup.
Check the sling measurements provided against one of your currently installed slings if unsure about fit.
Mason Leather Latigo Leather Rifle/Shotgun Slings are cut from USA produced & tanned Latigo Leather. Latigo is renowned for its long lasting durability and strength and was developed specifically for strap use, making it perfect for slings. Latigo does have some slight stretch to it, and as your sling breaks-in with use you may have to tighten your adjustments up a notch to account for that natural stretch.
All Mason Leather gear is handcrafted from USA sourced full grain leathers and may have natural markings or imperfections; these add to the rugged appeal and in no way affect durability or performance.
