    Default What sling for Namibian?

    Hi HKP,

    Does anyone know which sling works for the Namibian kitted rifles?
    The front is the standard eyelet for the HK hook, but the rear is FAL
    type sling loop.

    Thanks

    I do not see why an HK sling (particularly, a green, FMP sling) could not work!!!

    You attach the bottom end of the sling the same way, you just do it through the sling loop instead.

    Right lads, will give it a shot. Was thinking the standard sling would be too short and too thin to carry all that weight.
    Plus the balance point is the rear bottom of the stock vs middle.
    I might also try an ambix sling and use a ambix pin in one of the stock retainer pin positions?
    thx!

    I did not, for the reasons stated, mostly that the rifle weighs in a over 13lbs and the regular slng would be uncomfortable
    due to it's thinness. Also the size of the sling loop on the rear of the stock asks for a much wider slng and wouldn't look right
    in my eyes. Luckily, I think I've stumbled on the answer. Found a 1.25" wide HK sling in my spares box.
    It has it's own spring clip built into the 3pt buckle, which to me says its meant for a rifle that doesn't have a handguard clip,
    so could be for a SG1 or one for a South Afrikan rifle?

    Yes is was, the thicker sling works perfectly :)
    Had to flip it over so the rear buckle was on the outboard side, but no biggie,
    can shoulder the rifle and 3pt it just fine.

    Base gun + South African furniture + steel bipod + steel SG1 mount and scope + 22lr kit and magazine = 13.5lbs
    The stock is almost solid vs the hollow on the standard G3's and weighs more.
