Blue Force Gear 221 Vickers Sling
The Blue Force Gear 221 Vickers Sling is designed to allow users to switch from a 2 point sling to a 1 point sling instantly by pulling on the Red Swivel knob and reinserting it in to the Burnsed Socket at the rear of the receiver. Using a 2 point sling can be ideal for most situations, there are times when a 1 point sling has the clear advantage such as deploying from a vehicle or fighting in complex structures. The instantaneously adjustability of the sling is still maintained in both single and 2 point modes.
The slings are constructed of similar to the world’s standard Vickers Combat Applications Sling, a Red Swivel is sewn to the front of the sling towards the muzzle. A standard push button swivel and new molded Burnsed Socket are woven onto the rear allowing full adjustability of the sling for use with or without body armor.
The 221 Sling fits any weapon with two QD sling swivel sockets with the rear socket towards the end of the receiver. For SCARS, Sigs, HKs, or other weapon systems with eyelets at the rear of the receiver, a Universal Wire Loop with Push Button Socket can be added instead of the included push button socket.
