This gun sling is a classic pattern named after the shape of an angry cobra with its hood opened. The sling can be left plain, or it can be decorated with a tooled name, a traditional basket weave pattern, or an inlay of exotic leather.
Click "See more images" for examples of slings I've made for past customers. Swivels are shown on some of these slings, but I no longer offer swivels as an option.
The body of the sling is cut from supple, sturdy bridle leather. The wide "cobra" shoulder section is lined with suede leather to minimize slippage. The sling is precisely stitched and features careful finishing and crisp details. Hardware is solid brass, darkened to a soft antique brown.
The sling as shown can be adjusted in length from 30" to 38" long. The sling can also be made to exact length for no additional cost. The ends of the sling where they attach to the gun are 1" wide.
For inlays, I stock brown ostrich shin leather, hair-on cowhide in various patterns, chap leather in a good selection of colors and textures, and South Dakota prairie rattlesnake and bull snake. All skins are from non-threatened, non-endangered species. Other colors or types of leathers are available by special order.
Please note: Snake skin is a delicate leather not suitable for heavy use. For a long-wearing, durable sling, please choose any of my other decorative options.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
No return or refund on customized slings. This means if you have me put a name on a sling or make the sling to an exact length, you own it.
