True, I am suging Metal Sling Swivel i bought from AirsoftPark 2 years ago. Qality is ok. I chose Metal Sling Swivel with two loops, which I really only use one on the left, and right one remains empty. Right loop stands in the way of forward assist. I shoud cut this part some day…
Thus, the belt. Belts material is similar to cordura. It seems that it is the low-density Cordura. Seams are quite good, but stick thread. However, all seams are dual, with the cross-alteration. In a word – nice.
All three loops are made from plastic. Black plastic, rigid, flex and scratching resistant. Likely it is made of high-density polymer alloy so popular airsoft. True, I did not like that loops are black… If you choose to have the belt in TAN, would be nice to have its all components in desired color. While not a secret, in this way it is way cheaper for the manufacturer.
Rubber inside the sling is strong, hard. When stretched gets by one third longer. While hand-drawn, there is considerable resistance, but hanging gun will stretch rubber fully. This gum is not designed to absorb the weapons hanging – it is inadequate. This rubber is made to absorb the weapon when it is operated, as the shooting position or configuration is changed.
Weapon buckle fastening is made of heavy metal, painted in glossy black. Here I’ll give the sling minus, because gloss is really annoying. As a metal buckle will connect to a metal loop on the arm, paint will wear off quickly.
The buckle is very simple. However, the buckles work very well. Buckle opens by pressing the latch. It has a strong spring inside. Latch is considerable, so even while wearing gloves it is easy to grasp and unfasten. It is difficult to move the buckle on the belt, becose fastening loop is squared. It would be easier if the loop awas round.
I liked the belt becose the price-quality ratio. I would say that price even mingy. -Tssss ;) The belt is long enough to use over the neck and armpit. Appropriate width, sling doesnt cut into the shoulders and neck.
The onlydrawback of this belt, I would like to point out, is this glossy and noisy weapon attachment buckle.
I woouldnt use this sling with mashine gun, because no one knows or will keep the plastic buckles and loops. I’d choose a two-point belts for havy guns.
PS.: It would be interesting to know what type of belt is the most popular among the readers:
