The Vickers 221 Sling While 2-point slings are ideal for most situations, there are times, like deploying from a vehicle or fighting in complex structures, when a 1-point sling has an advantage. Combining our new polymer Burnsed Socket and patented RED Swivel, the Vickers 221 Sling allows users to switch from 2-point to 1-point mode instantly by pulling on the RED Swivel knob and reinserting it into the Burnsed Socket at the rear of the receiver. The instantaneous adjustability of the sling is still maintained in both single and 2 point modes.
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 Vickers 221 Slings™ are built with precision and pride right here at home in the US with superior materials.
Attachment Hardware: RED™ Swivel or Push Button Constructed 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.
Sewn in the USA At Blue Force Gear, our slings are sewn right here in the USA. We take great pride in American Manufacturing and the attention to details our experts provide. From the quality of material to sewn in details, the Vickers 221 Sling comes with lifetime warranty.
