Blue Force Gear Goes Modular with Custom User Configurable Vickers Slings

Blue Force Gear, known for their high-quality and ultra-light weight tactical gear and high-speed slings has released a new option on their website for customers – the option to purchase a completely customized Vickers sling. Previously, customers had to choose from a large array of pre-configured options with the ability to order separate components for final tweaks.

Now, customers can order any sling in any form (including padded options!), within the available options including:

  • Front Webbing Color
  • Back Webbing Color
  • Adjuster Pull Tab Color
  • Front Attachment Hardware
  • Rear Attachment Hardware
  • Sling Hardware Options
  • Sew in Front Attachment
  • Sew in Rear Attachment

Just the colors create a bewildering array of options.  Colors alone include:

  • Black
  • Coyote Brown
  • Foliage Green
  • Kryptic Highlander
  • Kryptic Typhoon
  • Multicam
  • Multicam Arid
  • Multicam Tropic
  • OD Green
  • Safety Orange
  • Sand
  • Wolf Grey

Options for attachment are equally complete including Q/D, RED Swivels, UWL, U-Loops, MASH, Molded UWLs, and more. As the user selects their options, the photo updates with the colors and attachments.

Custom slings are manufactured to order, with Blue Force Gear asking for only 3 days for the sling to be completed. Like other highly custom options, return options are limited, but they are warrantied forever but Blue Force Gear’s stellar customer service team.

Shooters can configure theirs today over at Blue Force Gear. 


Updated 3.7.2016. Blue Force Gear contacted TFB and noted padded slings are available.

    I’m over Blue Force. Their association with TTAG (and all of TTAG’s asinine “quote of the day,” “question of the day,” and other stupid clickbait) pretty much got me sick of their name.

      Good thing there’s nothing like that here.

        Oh, TFB does stuff like that. They just don’t sell sponsorships.

    So many options for the discerning camo-sexual.

    Have BFG slings on most of my stuff. Work great with their U-loops. Mine are all basic black though…

    I chose a random combo and it was $95. That’s a lot of cheese.

    I love BFG slings. Other good options too. But they’re my favorite. But hey tfb. welcome to a month ago when they started doing this.
