Has anyone had, tried, owned, saw, or used a Wolf-Hook Sling like the one that ranger Joe's has listed for $11.95.www.rangerjoe.com/catalog/selection.cfm?category=main&id=2875
If so how reliable was it doesn't look very stout.

Sorry was going to include pic but too hard for hillbillie red neck like me

Why spend the money I made my own very similer, works nice but if yer right handed and have to switch to the left, It's a pain. Made mine so i could lengthen it fast but it was never fast enough so I scrapped it. Better off with a CQB/ or other similar 3point type sling. just mu .02

Making your own is always a possibility, but most of [url=http://www.cqbsolutions.com]CQB Solutions[/URL] slings are under $30, including hardware in some cases. I've got several of their 3-point slings with the quick release buckles.

I had one of these on my CTC vest.It's made by CTC and maybe a bit beefier.It's great for patolling but as stated above, it won't allow for shooting with the weak hand. [img]http://customtactical.com/IAARsling.jpg[/img]

I've thought about making my own but never tried. Thanks for replies.[puke]

FWIW, I've seen photo's of SEALs doing the same thing with a locking carabiner and a bit of 550 cord. The 'biner hooks to the harness, and the 550 cord is tied to the tele-stock. You could also try making one with a length of webbing and a couple of tri-glides. Anyway, a couple of ways it could be done for less than 5 bucks ('biner excluded) if you just wanted to try it and see if it works for you.

I was recently considering the Wolf Hook myself. I am not going tactical otherwise I would have serious concerns about right/left rifle transitions. However, I like to reduce bulk and the rifle I wanted it for is a relatively super light weight so no big weight pulling on my gear. Looking at it, as the others mentioned I also decided that I could just make my own, tailored to my wants. Mine is going to be a modified version much closer to CTC. However, this will be 1" black webbing, may or may not be length adjustable - I haven't decided, use an Hk style snap hook that will attach to the rear swivel on my ARFX stock and one for the vest with a quick release buckle. I don't think I am going to save much money but it will be exactly what I want from that kind of setup. YMMV

That's not my AR.That's a pic from [url]www.customtactical.com[/url] Here's a pic of a similar setup used by the Israeli IDF.I used this setup before getting the IAAR sling. [img]http://www.isayeret.com/units/land/infantry/golany/shehem-1.jpg[/img]

That's the setup I mentioned seeing in my previous post.

Thanks For the ideas. It really gets my evil master mind to burning the midnight oil.[grenade] See even Israel is plagued with the dreaded Yugo invasion.[shock] If I were them. I would expend all remaining rounds down range at the nasty poor excuse of a car.[torch]

Relax, we already bombed the plant off the face of the earth. They'll slowly rust away on their own. It's not like they are still being made in Mexico or anything.
