Vickers Sling on a Firearm



Padded Vickers Sling on Ranger in No Lights - Kryptek Highlander


The Padded Vickers Sling

The Patent Pending Padded Vickers Sling combines with the tactical sling capability of the Vickers Sling with the added comfort of a padded rear section. The 2” inline pad doesn’t move up or down the sling and is made from closed cell foam that won’t separate or gain water weight. The front section with the Quick Adjuster allows the user to instantly lengthen and shorten the sling - quickly transitioning from a “hands-free” carry to a shooting position with a simple pull of the Adjuster.

The Quick Adjuster - Contrasting Pull Tab

Able to quickly transition from carrying a slung rifle comfortably to combat ready, the patent pending Quick Adjuster has bridged the gap between the two primary uses of weapon slings – from transporting to fighting. All Padded Vickers Slings™ are built with precision and pride right here at home in the US with superior materials.

Attachment Hardware Sold Separately

The Padded Vickers Sling attaches directly to fixed loop firearm attachment systems. Additional hardware can be purchased and added to the front and backend of the sling for more firearm attachment methods.

Shotgun News, March 2015

"The Vickers Padded Sling is without doubt the most comfortable combat carry sling I have ever slung around my shoulders." - Shotgun News, March 2015, Vol 69 - Issue 9, pg 18 

Adjuster & Triglides Build

Nylon Hardware: The all new Nylon Hardware version features all newly designed DuPont Zytel® nylon - which is lighter, stronger, and more flexible than traditional plastic sling hardware. The majority of the BFG slings shipped to the US Military feature Nylon Hardware.
Metal Hardware: The Metal Hardware version of the Padded Vickers Sling features a machined aluminum Adjuster that is hardcoat anodized matte black and combined with phosphated steel trigldides. The Metal Hardware slings provide more strength than will ever be needed in a weapon sling - perfect for those apocalypse guns and the “all metal” type of shooters.
