New Galco Slings

Bungee Sling

Galco Gunleather announced several new rifle slings for 2016. Two of them are the Bungee Sling and the RifleMann Sling. Here is a quick overview of each.

Bungie FDE AK

The Bungee Sling is a single point sling that uses an HK-style snap hook. The hook is included with the sling, but it can also be attached to the rifle using a nylon loop. The sling is constructed of an elasticized synthetic material that has an ample amount of “give” in it for weapon movement. Galco states the sling is adjustable for both length and ride height. The MSRP is $67.95 and it can be had in either black or flat dark earth.

RifleMann Sling

The RifleMann Sling is a sling developed by Galco with outdoor writer Richard Mann. It seems that Mann developed an idea for a three-way convertible hunting sling that Galco agreed to produce. The result is the RifleMann.

The RifleMann can be used in a traditional, hasty manner, a modified hasty as is used with the Galco Ching Sling or as a “military sniper” method that wraps the sling around the strong side triceps. Galco added thick padding so the sling can be more comfortably carried for long periods of time.

Not surprisingly, Mann is said to have declared the RifleMann as “the best damn sling I’ve ever used.” The suggested retail price is $49.95.

    Oh please, everyone knows that real operators are moving to custom kydex holsters. Ropes are old hat for grandpa.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist after that article the other day.

    Somebody needs to put that poor AK out of it’s misery. Guy with a beard? I’m sold!

      Beards enable you to be an operator so you can tactically operate operationally with other operators in operations under operational conditions.

      Send it to a warlord in Africa.

      He even has the shooting stance.

    In my experience using bungie single point slings they get aggravating, because your long gun is bouncing while you walk. But I’ve lost preference for single points in general because anytime I let loose of my weapon it is just banging right into my crotch.

      I was going to say the same thing. Look at the first picture. This shows exactly what you are describing.

        Every single point sling needs to come with a hard cup.

        • RealitiCzech

          If you cinch it up tight, and have it moved to the left, it doesn’t tend to smash the wedding tackle.

      All of my non Russian designed carbines have a magpul ms1 sling because it does what a single point is supposed to do but better and you still have the versatility of a 2 point.

      I give mine a positive shove to the left so it hits my left thigh instead. Probably would work best in concert with Interceptor gear, though.

    The Mann sling looks like the first thing GALCO didn’t copy or buy from another company. Funny thing is, their “pancake” holsters don’t look like the original Baker Pancakes.

    Does your gun sling hang low?
    Does it dangle to and fro?
    Can you tie it in a know?
    Can you tie it in a bow?
    Does it rattle when you walk?
    Does it jingle when you talk?

    Guy is demonstrating the “no aim from cover” style that is big with ISIS fighters right now. Very progressive Galco!
