Here is a good background on the product

Nice concept. Not sure it is what I am looking for . You are not out of line at all BTW.

Thanks, was just thinking about forum rules about promoting any product one is personally involved with.

If you wish, I could send a sling your way free of charge, for you to be able to check it out.

We are now working with a couple solid contacts after meetings at SHOT, for U.S distribution.

Good thread!
Vickers for simplicity and bomber construction, and that VT setup looks appealing (maybe too busy for dense brush?), but I prefer to hunt with a lumbar pack on LBE rig (currently Tenzing), and would be interested in a diagonal carry.

Tuukka's vid led me to the 3HGR light harness. I like the looks of this, including what appears to be rubberized shoulder.

If one wants to carry the rifle at ready / fighting sling, then I would ( and have ) go with the BFG Vickers slings. I have used them for years and have them on several weapons at work also.

DaveP, thats our sort of "Icelandic" version if one does not want/need the gun rest feature based on terrain etc. Some early critical commentry, mostly online with no hands on yet, focused on "not wanting to wrap yourself around a tree"

Again it is not the only good feature and only comes with less than 2 oz weight increase, if one happens to need the extra support for making a shot. I would also emphazise the carrying comfort and security of the sling, especially suppressor equipped rifles can be prone to shifting around if carried with a traditional sling.

We do also now have a Picatinny mounting version as well.

I sent a pm thanks. I would like to at least pick up shipping. Hopefully you can get them on the market soon.

I have one and used it on a few hunts in the Siskiyou Mountains.

Pros: hands are free & never slips off the shoulder like a traditional sling. All day comfortable carry.

Cons: unless your sling mounts are on the side of your stock, then the trigger guard and magazine are on your spine. I found it was only a minor annoyance.
I used it once with a day pack and that was not ideal. its pretty much the rifle OR a day pack but not both. a fanny pack would probably work better with it. With a 20" barrel on my 6'3" height, the muzzle would be pointing at my head. My rifle was 24" and it was just over.

I would use it again but now I just use a Vtac with my bolt guns.

Hope that helps I know this isn't a fresh topic...
