They were the broken link pics in the beginning of the thread. Don’t know where they went.This is a great thread. I've got an old Model 1895 Winchester that I would like to equip with a sling. The step-by-step photos of the buttstock installation is really helpful. However, I would really like to see step-by-step photos of the slip knot (like is on the Montana sling) for the front of the sling. Do these exist anywhere?
For some reason the pictures showing how to tie the slip knot dont show up, I have been trying to figure out how to tie it but cant figure it out; I just recently got a 336 and want to make one of these slings for it.For some reason the first pics of the adjustment part came back up. At least on my phone. I didn’t re load them. Dunno.

I'm glad this thread was revived. I had forgotten about it. I never got around to making a sling for my Winchester 1894. It turned 100 years old this year so I have plans to take it hunting.
That was a long list of things to do.Are you asking me? I have other things on my list of things to do right now.
Old family gun passed down from generation to generation. I also have a 1923 Winchester Model 12 12-gauge. I don't know the age of my brother's two inherited guns but he has a Winchester 1886 .33 WCF and the same shotgun as mine in 16-gauge. I'm going to assume those two were also bought in the 1920s.Wow 100 years! Thats pretty cool! The marlin I just recently purchased was manufactured 1995, not quite as old but as long as it aint a 2008 or newer im happy.
9/10 sounds right, but I honestly don’t remember the weight. 1/8” is the light end. 3/16” is nice and stout. 1/4” is probably too much.What weight or thickness leather straps do you tend to use? I was going to buy some 9/10oz strap but am afraid that might be too thick
