sling swivels
« on: May 17, 2020, 08:38:32 pm »
 I am looking for period style sling swivels for my new Rossi 92.  Possibly for a Krag or trapdoor sling.   Since I don't own a horse,  a sling would do better than a Gun cart

Howdy Lord Eoin,

I gather that you are not intending to use a sling instead of a gun cart foe CAS. If you do intend to use it for CAS, I would suggest you consider a gun cart. It not only provides you with a way to haul around ammo, tools, cigars, fired shells, etc. but all is a handy gun rack where none is provided at a given stage. I'm afraid I can't help with period correct swivels. Also having a sling waving around under your rifle while you are moving from target to target might be counter productive.

 Dear Reverend Chase,   I need to sling the rifle, because one hand is for my cane, and the other to carry everything else either in a musset bag, or carpet bag.  No room in the apartment for a gun cart (non SASS shooting).   Since I am GAF,  and a Vet.  I like period style fittings for my kit.

Hi

You might consider a blanket or leather rifle case with a sling on it.  I've looked at these guys, but haven't purchased yet.

There is also this group that does leather rifle cases.

https://www.nwtrader.com/gun_cases.html

Haven't done business with either one, but would like to get something for a lever gun.  I think both would look strange with a 30-40 Krag.
