|Good copy of an original
|Nice heavy duty leather Marlin slings, easy to assemble and looks great on my older Marlin 99's and 99m1's. Like in another review it would be nice it they came with sling keeper loops to close the large open end at the rifle butt. Contacted the manufacture but no response yet. Have found them online but not sure if the colors will match. Got these at the sale price and saved some$$$.
Shipping was fast and well packaged.

|Quality Leather put how Assembled Awkward
|It's a good sling, good leather. Initially looked a bit narrow but works fine. Leather is shiny and stiff; needs conditioning and worked a bit to soften it. How it was assembled when it arrived was a bit awkward to figure out how the buckle or slide is used to adjust sling length; well, it at least it was for me. One end of the buckle (brass belt adjuster slide) was attached to one of the leather end- loops where the swivel it attached. This prevented the buckle from being used to adjust sling length, so I unscrewed the Chicago Screw Rivet and detached it from the leather loop end. That solved the problem. However, the sling needs a 1” (25.4 mm) belt loop on it, similar to what the Cobra and the 3-Point Military Sling have.

|Acceptable for the price
|I purchased based on the description to go with a couple older Marlin rifles I have, however the leather looks and feels cheap. It is smooth on both sides and not an “oiled” type leather sling like a typical military style sling. I will give it some time and see how it wears in and holds up. I seems like the quick adjustment feature will hold solid and not slip but time will tell.

|We really should tell them….
|Quality leather & craftsmanship. Amazing attention to detail. Professionally packed and shipped for an incredibly fair price. I’ve now bought 4 various makes & models. Each is superb. You know, we should tell those boys on EBay paying a fortune for 50 year old slings….maybe I will after I purchase 1 or 2 more.

|These are modeled after the classic Marlin slings of years ago...they got rare and to expensive to buy. I am very pleased they are being re-introduced for a reasonable price! Sturdy, adjustable "old time" Horse & Rider sling! It's Great!
