Does your MPL, Uzi, MP5, Spectre, or Jatimatic need a sling? Soon to be available from Blue Force Gear is a new little sling for your SMGs. The new sling is able to be configured either as a single point or two-point sling via Blue Force Gear’s ULoop attachment system. Perfect for SMGs such as the “Uzi Nine Millimeter” that have smaller sling attachment points, and don’t feature QD cups like more modern firearms. The Vickers SMG sling is also svelte, weight is only 3.35oz.

Sling Lead Like it’s the ’80s With the New Vickers SMG Sling
Per Blue Force Gear:
The Vickers SMG Sling™ isn’t just a scaled down rifle sling. The Vickers SMG Sling is a gun sling designed from the start for smaller, lighter submachine guns employed in tactical and patrol operations. One of the key features is the built-in ability to convert to a single point sling when desired. The 2 point sling mode allows the weapon to be slung and carried more securely but the included hardware allows for rapid conversion to single-point mode when needed. The SMG Sling uses two BFG exclusive ULoops for attachment hardware allowing for mounting to rail holes, eyelets, ambidextrous sling attachment points and other oddly shaped sling mounts. Just like the revolutionary Vickers Combat Application Sling, the SMG Sling features the BFG patented quick adjust sling feature.

Compatibility: HK MP5, MP7, UMP, Uzi and other similar sized guns
