The Standard AK Sling was designed from the ground up to
be the perfect sling for the world’s most prolific small arm to match the
qualities of the AK – simple, durable, functional, and economical. If you
have been long dissatisfied with the issue canvas strap or can’t seem to get
commercial slings to fit right – this sling is for you.
We started with the Vickers Sling™ platform used by good
guys the world over. With over 200,000 in use with the US military, the
Vickers Sling with it quick adjust technology has a track record of being
combat proven. Like the Vickers Sling, the Standard AK Sling can be
instantly lengthened and shortened with no sling tail to get caught or parts to
break. This allows close, secure weapon retention that can be carried all
day but instantly lengthen to be shouldered and fired without removing the
weapon or untangling the sling. The sling can be sized to the individual, with
or without body armor or other gear.
Perfectly suited for the AK is the front Molded Universal
Wire Loop™. The UWL™ attaches to the elongated eyelet on handguard
retainer or gas block quietly and securely with nylon coated aircraft grade
stainless steel cable. The UWL can also be passed through underneath the
gas tube for left hand installation. The UWL is threaded on the
front and can be removed for a more custom application.
The rear of the sling features two triglides to attach to
buttstocks, folding stocks, wire stocks, or any other stock type.
Unique to the Standard AK Sling is the limited run of
Plum hardware. As a tribute to the famed Russian “plum” furniture and
mags of the late 1980s, the plum hardware on OD and Coyote Brown slings is the
finishing touch of such a unique sling.
As with all Blue Force Gear, it is made with
excellence in the USA and carries a limited lifetime warranty.
