Features

There isn’t that much to say about the functionality and features of such a simple item. Although these are a tad more complex than the modern rifle slings. These are c. 27 mm (1.06") wide canvas slings with a buckled loop at one end and a 14 mm (0.8") leather tab at the other. The canvas is olive drab green in color and the leather parts are brown.

Use

If you got an AK, you need one of these. If you don’t have an AK, you should get this anyway AND and an AK. Even though these are made for the Russian design classic, you can also use them with other guns featuring similar sling mounts, or at least mounts that aren’t narrower than the measurements given above. The canvas loop goes through the sling swivel at the rear and the leather tab is looped through the front mount. See pics.

You should soften the leather tab with leather grease/wax/oil before putting the sling on your rifle. These have been stored in a warehouse for quite a while, so it is possible that leather has become stiff. Some of these are nice and flexible but grease is good for them, too.

Condition

These are unissued military surplus of the People’s Liberation Army of China. So, they are pretty much in as good a condition as decades-old products can be. Of course, it is possible that there are some used ones here as well but they are all perfectly serviceable. The colors can be a bit faded, the fabric a bit worn, the leather a bit darkened and stiff, and there might be some warehouse dust on them, which just gives them credibility. If anything but mint condition gives you anxiety, buy a Chinese copy of the Chinese original. But that won’t be as cool as this.

A great product. But, yes there is a but... The leatherstrap is so old and dry and will break if you bend it. It will work fine mostly if you give generous amounts of leatheroil and leave it for day or two. After this gently try to bend it but if you start to see stress in the leather give it some more oil and some gentle massage ( now don't get this wrong.... you filthy animals.) But after this the leather should bend into your will. Nevertheless if the leather breaks. It is only a leatherstrap that is easily replaced and cut to dimension. Fabric on the sling is tough and sturdy-
