Slings already available include the MGL 2-to-1 and MGL Two Point.

Warning: slings may not be completely identical. Specific pieces leather and other materials and the very nature of handcrafting could result in very minor differences that will have no impact on the quality of the sling (but will make each one unique).

All MGL hunting rifle slings are sewn one at a time as ordered, from premium leather. Please allow 2 weeks from order date (or when MGL receives the artwork for your logo) before shipment.

*Buyer must be the legal owner of laser engraved logo or provide written permission for use. Kydex and Cordura will work but distinguished things deserve leather.
