Affordable Rifle Sling

Why are rifle slings so expensive??

I’m like every other gun guy. I bought the coolest rifle sling for my new rifle. It did everything I could imagine. It went from 2 point to 1 point. It went from a 1 point sling to a 3 point sling. I could use it as a harness to rappel off a building if needed. It then turned into a self-defense weapon to fight my way through Antifa. Oh the list of uses goes on and on. But all joking aside why are they so expensive??

I haven’t payed $50 for a piece of webbing for along time.

For the last 10 years I have just been buying webbing from Stapworks. They have a huge assortment of webbing. I use 1.5 inch webbing for my slings. I buy the military grade webbing. I also get the METAL sliders that fit the 1.5 webbing. You can get the sliders painted in an assortment of colors. I use metal sliders because I have had plastic sliders break and the rifle fall to the ground. I do not use plastic sliders anymore.

I only run 2 point slings on my rifles. Most of my time spent with my rifle is patrolling or hunting and a 2 point sling shines in this area.

The recent order I made cost me $12 for 2 six foot lengths of 1.5 in webbing and 2 metal sliders for the webbing. That was included shipping.

As you can see in the pictures above its nothing special but it didn’t cost $50. This has worked perfectly fine for me for over 10 years.
