These excellent match slings were developed by Mid and Nancy Tompkins for use in High Power, Long Range, and Smallbore shooting. The one and one fourth inch width was chosen because it provides excellent stability but does not transfer pulse effectslike wider slings sometimes do. Both slings are designed to work without keepers, but can be used with a one and one fourth inch keeper if desired. These slings can be used with hooks or push button detachable sling swivels and attach to the rifle on the front swivel only - they are not for service rifle competition. The leather sling is 11 oz. full grain burgundy latigo leather which measures almost 0.200 inch thick. Biothane is extremely strong, supple and comfortable, and it is completely weather resistant.
