So I did not want to shell out 40$ for a leather Rifle Sling. So I used a leather belt!

I purchased this 100% leather belt from Goodwill for $2.99 Ralph Lauren also :D:

Materials:
1) Leather Belt
2) 2- Chicago screws (leather shop or ebay 25 for about $3)
3) 2- Uncle Mike's swivels

Optional 3) Leather punch





Step 1: Remove the buckle



Step 3: Place swivel in loop and punch hole



Step 4: Screw it down



Step 5: Place swivel on tag end




Full Sling:





EDIT- More info: Just saw online that someone did this before also. Basically the exact same process. I actually like his design for an adjustable strap!

I used a strap from a camera bag on my 10/22. But the one i like the best was a rifle sling i made out of 60 feet of paracord. I just used a snake weave pattern.

Great post! I've done this sort of thing before, and it works great! I like the idea of cutting the belt in the middle for the 2 ends and leaving the buckle for adjustment.

My favorite sling is the one on my M44 scout, which uses a single 100 foot piece of paracord.

Yea I actually really like that design leaving the buckle in the middle also. I am probably going to do it that way next time.
