An effective, simple and reliable to our special for our special military client. The HW (highweight) Griffin sling features thin and narrow heavy-weight, designed primarily for LMGs and sniper rifles. The streamlined padding is very unobtrusive but offers just enough width and cushioning to make a notable difference compared to an unpadded sling.
Our grip tab equipped aluminium rapid adjustment slider gives the Griffin Sling effortless, effective and highly reliable quick adjustment, no matter the conditions and type of gloves you are wearing.
The heart of the Griffin Sling is our proprietary rapid adjustment slider. Quick, the effortless adjustment provides an easy transition between carry-shoot-carry etc., in all conditions. We know the world is full of sling adjustment buckles, and most are pretty good. We chose to design our own adjustment hardware due to these simple reasons:
It should be solid metal without any moving parts
It should have proper serrations and protrusions for gripping
It must be grip tab compatible for use with winter handwear
And it should preferably be made in Finland
If you hate the webbing grip tab or don’t need it, you can cut it off. The serrated sides and protruding webbing attachment point offer good grip as is.
As this is a simple two-point sling, you don’t need to play around with numerous webbing ends, just two. The 25 mm / 1 ” webbing fits most sling swivels and mounting hardware. We make these with long enough webbing ends to reach around most people.
1. Open up the rear webbing loop by threading the webbing end out through the steel tri-glide buckle. Loop the webbing through the sling swivel, buckle, stock or whatever attachment point you use on your firearm’s rear. Rethread the webbing through the buckle and do a U-turn to lock it into place.
2. Open up the front quick adjustment webbing loop and remove the steel tri-glide from the webbing. Loop the webbing through your front sling swivel or buckle, reattach the steel tri-glide and loop the webbing around the rapid adjustment slider and back through the steel tri-glide.
3. Try playing around with different adjustment lengths to the front and rear. When you’ve found the suitable setting, you can then roll and tape the excess webbing ends into neat bundles. Or, if you dare, cut and burn them.
The Griffin Slings are the commercial offspring of a bunch of slings we designed for a military client according to their requirements. It all began with our client needing proper padded two-point slings for small arms, including sniper rifles and light machine guns.
The slings should carry heavy weight as comfortably as possible, feature forward-pull-to-lengthen quick-adjustment, fit various mounting hardware and be effective and reliable in” sub-optimal conditions” (it’s -30 °C, you’re suffering from sleep deprivation and wearing thick winter gloves and using NVG’s that mess up your view of anything within arm’s length).
The first model designed was the heavyweight (HW). After that came the midweight (MW) version for carbines and the lightweight (LW) for SMGs. Lastly came the hybrid of the MW and LW, the modular/modified (MOD), built around the LW but with a moveable/removable pad.
Since these turned out nicely, we decided to make these available to the public. So, here you go: the Griffin Slings – decently high-speed low-bullshit slings, named after that mythical half-bird, half-cat creature for some peculiar reason.
