I'm trying to keep my Norinco AK as authentic as possible , and this Chinese sling is a great addition to that effort. The inexpensive cost, along with the rapid delivery, were just icing on the cake. Great job KS, keep up the good work!
Very nice sling it is simple compact and does the job but i do wish it were a tad bit wider but thats ok, also i like the leather attachment to the mounting points all at a very good price to boot.
Hope they get more in, bought a while back and slings were like new and true surplus slings and can't beat it for the money.
I ordered one which came in probably the original factory rice paper wrapping. Probably never issued, certainly has the right look. I actually think these are better than the European Style AK slings the site also sells, either despite or because of being actual surplus.
I don't know if all the people leaving outstanding reviews just never used this sling extensively or what, but both ends of my Chinese sling tore. I won't get it again.
i have 2 of these and they are both great.
Bought 2, very nice slings
good sling for the money. I have been using mine for a few months and have not had any problems.
Perfect on all counts ... can't be beat for price or quality
Very nice. I have seen these at gun shows for much more money. Great sling for my Polytech.
I like it, because it's the real, authentic military old style cotton made sling, still in the original packaging. It's good for the AK's, SKS's or even Mosin-Nagant rifles. Thank You Keep Shooting for having it in stock.
Authentic not a replica! Great add on for period correctness.
These slings are very rugged. I've had bad experiences with poorly made Chinese slings in the past, but these ones seem very solid. I have no fear of these slings failing me while carrying any expensive rifles. I bought two.
These are the type you will find in most 3rd world countries AKs. So in other words these are as tough as the Aks that they are mounted on. For that price I would buy a few.
This is an excellent sling that came in excellent condition. I have one on my SKS and one on my WASR. Seven bucks a piece !!!
As I expected, this sling fit the MAK90 perfectly. After trimming the leather for the front attachment, it was only a matter of getting the button/rivet to feed through the leather. Good quality. Seems to be very durable. Recommended to any MAK owner
I usually do most of my shopping at a different site, but ever since I stumbled across Keepshooting, I've been amazed at their prices! The price for this sling is about $5-$10 cheaper than the price other sites are asking for. So get these while you can! Mine is in excellent condition.
Great price, look, and history! If you have a Wasr 10, like me, you will need to trim the leather part to fit into handguard sling hole, after about 5 minutes I was carrying the AK on my back! Good buy!
I own an actual 1973 Chinese SKS and I recently bought the sling, it was very durable. The leather was very stuff, so I bend it several times to get it loosen and it fits nicely on my SKS. I will buy another one for my Uncle's SKS! The price is too good to be true, people at gun shows would try and rip you off for a ridiculous price if you can get it for 6.95 dollars.
Real Chinese Military sling not a reproduction! The packaging was crude but what they used back in the day, waterproofing old-school. Kind of a time capsule of sorts. They try and rip you at gun shows for stuff like this. Am very satisfied, Thanks
it was a little hard to put on but it looks great and its a really great price considering a guy at the gun show wanted $30 for the exact same thing. i would recommend this if you have an sks or a ak-47!
If you like authentic parts for your guns,then you will love this sling.It it makes a nice addition to your SKS,and even looks good on my AK.
Came wrapped in sealed wax paper, metal on buckle had a slight bit of corrosion but nothing some CLP wont fix. Good alternative to other AK sling styles. No metal to giggle around and make noise.
As others have said, getting the leather over the rivet was hard. I used a leather punch to enlarge the hole a bit because I was tired of fighting with it. It is made for the SKS, so you will most likely have to trim one end to fit the top sling loop on an AK. I had an old snap hook that had a D ring, and used that. On the SKS, a second sling fit perfectly. As an aside, the heavily waxed paper/fabric the sling is wrapped in makes a great fire starter.
it sort of looks as if the buckle is sewn in upside down and should lie flat to the webbing. perhaps it is like that to allow for easier manipulation???
either way, it's cheap and works well and that's something that's often hard to say about a lot of other made in china items. i wonder why they don't sell these at wal mart!!! lol
bottom line is you can modify it or just beat the crap out of it and not care since it was so cheap.
It didn't fit the front sling attachment on my WASR-10, so it cut it down a bit. After it fit getting the rivet thru the top hole on the sling was difficult, but after all that the sling isn't going anywhere.
Ordered 2. One went on easy, the other one put up a hard... Leather is very hard and tuff. Works great on AK47s or SKS rifles.
I've purchased two of these and about to purchase a third. They are very good quality and sturdy. Although they may have some collectability value, I actually use mine. I prefer these to the European type because there is no metal-to-metal noise or wear. They are very versatile for different variants. The only reason I didn't rate quality 5-star is because one of my slings had some color variation. I know that may be important to some and that's why I mention it. Otherwise, for my use they are excellent!!
