    I make paracord bracelets and keychains in my spare time to sell, would anyone here be interested in a rifle sling?

    No more than $20, but I will make up a sample. Popgun, I made a single point last year for a guy at work it was a bit thin, but worked well with a light ar. I'm thinking about having ashley knit the two point slings.

    I'll see what I can cook up after the range today. I'm going to test drive two springfields.

    I know those will sell, Jon, but your price point is off. I have a buddy here who has been making this type of sling for over a year, and he sells them $30 wholesale to a guy who takes them to gun shows. Price at the show is $45 each.

    He has found a way to make them adjustable, so maybe that's the difference (??), but don't sell yourself short. If you're doing this to make extra money, make sure you are earning $20 per hour or more.

    There would be a lot of paracord in a rifle sling! Would make a great sling, and in a survival situation, there would be a lot of cord to work with!

    I'm thinking close to 75 feet , with it tapering down like a regular sling.

    Would you guys rather see a tapered sling, or a single worth all the way down.

    DUDE! Survival sling from hell right there. You make them so they can be unraveled right? Having a sling on a survival rifle that is over 100 feet long para cord would come in realy handy if you were lost in the woods or forced into the mountains in a SHTF situation.. Im down for one or 2.. Paypal? Check? postal MO?
