The Standard AK Sling was designed from the ground up to be the perfect sling for the world’s most prolific small arm to match the qualities of the AK – simple, durable, functional, and comfortable. If you have been long dissatisfied with the issued canvas strap or can’t seem to get commercial slings to fit right, this sling is for you. The Standard AK sling is what you want for your AK-47, AK-74, or other AKM style rifles.
We started with the Vickers Sling platform used by good guys the world over. With over 500,000 in use with the US military, the Vickers Sling with its quick adjust technology has a track record of being combat proven.
Instant Adjustability with a Pull Tab Sling
The Standard AK Sling maintains the same instant adjustability that has made the Vickers Sling but with a shortened, value engineered quick adjust pull tab. Like the Vickers Sling, the Standard AK Sling can be instantly lengthened and shortened with no sling tail to get caught or parts to break. This allows close, secure weapon retention that can be carried all day, but instantly lengthened to be shouldered and fired without removing the weapon or untangling the sling. The sling can be sized to the individual, with or without body armor or other gear.
Perfect Frontend Sling Hardware Attachment: Molded UWL™
The Standard AK Sling comes with a Molded Universal Wire Loop™ for the perfect frontend sling hardware attachment point. Best suited for the AK, the UWL™ attaches to the elongated eyelet on handguard retainer or gas block quietly and securely with nylon coated aircraft grade stainless steel cable. The UWL can also be passed through underneath the gas tube for left hand installation. The UWL is threaded on the front and can be removed for a more custom application. The rear of the sling features two triglides to attach to buttstocks, folding stocks, wire stocks, or any other stock type.
