description

  • <p>The Griffin Slings are simple, effective and highly reliable, originally designed for a special military client of ours according to their requirements. The MOD (modified, modular) Griffin sling features a removeable and moveable pad, making it more versatile than the MW or HW with their streamlined sewn-on padding. The webbing core of the Griffin Sling MOD can easily be disassembled entirely without damaging the sling, making repairs and modifications very easy.</p> <br>

    <p>Our grip tab equipped aluminium rapid adjustment slider gives the Griffin Sling effortless, effective and highly reliable quick adjustment, no matter the conditions and what type of gloves you are wearing.</p> <br><br>

    <h3>RAPID ADJUSTMENT SLIDER</h3><br>

    <p>The heart of the Griffin Sling is our proprietary rapid adjustment slider. Quick, effortless adjustment provides easy transition between carry-shoot-carry etc. in all conditions. We know the world is full of sling adjustment buckles, and most of them are pretty good too. We chose to design our own adjustment hardware due to these simple reasons: </p><br>

    <ol>
    <li>- It should be solid metal without any moving parts</li>
    <li>- It should have proper serrations and protrusions for gripping</li>
    <li>- It must be be grip tab compatible for use with winter handwear</li>
    <li>- And it should preferably be made in Finland</li>
    </ol>
    <br>

    <p>If you hate the webbing grip tab, or just don’t need it or whatever, you can cut it off. The serrated sides and protruding webbing attachment point offer good grip as is.</p><br>

    <br>
    <h3>INSTALLATION</h3><br>

    <p>As this is a simple two-point sling you don’t need to play around with numerous ends of webbing, just two. The 25 mm / 1 ” webbing fits most sling swivels and mounting hardware out there. With it’s non-fixed padding the Griffin Sling MOD is a little bit different to install than the sewn-on padded MW and HW, you do not need to cut or tape any excess webbing as you can tuck it into the pad.</p><br>

    <p>1. Open up the rear webbing loop by threading the webbing end out through the steel tri-glide buckle. Loop the webbing through the sling swivel, buckle, stock or what ever attachment point you are using on the rear of your firearm. Rethread the webbing through the buckle and do a U-turn to lock it into place.</p><br>

    <p>2. Open up the front quick adjustment webbing loop and remove the steel tri-glide from the webbing. Loop the webbing trough your front sling swivel or buckle, reattach the steel tri-glide and loop the webbing around the rapid adjustment slider and back through the steel tri-glide.</p><br>

    <p>3. Try playing around with different adjustment lengths to the front and rear. When you’ve found the suitable setting you can move all excess webbing to the rear of the sling and tuck it into the padding (we recommend using a cleaning rod, long screwdriver or similar impliment to help you out). No need to cut and burn anything!</p><br>

    <h3>ORIGINS</h3><br>

    <p>The Griffin Slings are the commercial offspring of a bunch of slings we designed for a military client according to their requirements. It all began with our client needing proper padded two-point slings for all kinds of small arms, including sniper rifles and light machine guns.</p><br>

    <p>The slings should carry heavy weight as comfortably as possible, feature forward-pull-to-lengthen quick-adjustment, fit various mounting hardware and be effective and reliable in ”sub-optimal conditions” (it’s -30 °C, you’re suffering from sleep depravation and wearing thick winter gloves and using NVG’s that mess up your view of anything within arms length). </p><br>

    <p>The first model designed was the heavyweight (HW). After that came the midweight (MW) version for carbines, and the lightweight (LW) for SMG:s. Lastly came the hybrid of the MW and LW the modular/modified (MOD), built around the LW but with a moveable/removeable pad.</p><br>

    <p>Since these turned out pretty nicely we decided to make these available to the public. So, here you go: the Griffin Slings - decently high-speed low-bullshit slings, named after that mythical half-bird half-cat creature for some peculiar reason.</p>
