This instructable is going to show how to make a gun sling out of 550 paracord. This is my first instructable please leave some positive feedback on how clear the instructions were and what I could improve on. Also please post pictures of your slings and any variations as I would like to see your ideas. Thank you and enjoy.

Step 1: Supplies

The supplies you will need are: -550 Paracord (I chose camo and orange) -Knife -Pliers -Lighter -Gun sling swivel -Shotgun/rifle shell (optional) -Patience as this will take a while Sorry about the controller and the cookie was making this between games.
<p>To JohnS286 it has been so long since i have done this I honestly do not remember I have only made it once. I am sorry I can not be of more help.</p>
<p>To KatieH20 they are different depending on what the mounts are on the gun. The ones I used were for the peg with a hole style mount but it will work the same with whatever mount you use but you need to put one on each side </p>
<p>I'm planning on making this for my dad for Christmas: can you tell me a little about the gun sling swivels and how they work? Are they one-size fits all or do they have to match to certain guns? And do you only attach it to one side of the weave? </p>
If I want to make a finished sling that is 50&quot; in length and not thinned, How much length of each cord do i need? Thanks
<p>this is cool !!</p>
<p>I coincidentally started this at the beginning of Police Week! It will adorn my shotgun during my next Qualification. Great use of the different colors to make this easier to understand. Thanks!</p>
I made my first paracord sling this weekend for my military sporting rifle that shoots the 7.62x39mm round.
It's basically the same as the right just mirrored per say so do wat u did on the right to the left
I've been trying this for half an hour and can't do the left side since there aren't any pics of you weaving it. I've done the right just fine but can't finish the second part if the left
Nice dude! The different colors make it way less confusing in the pics. Gonna try it out
Nicely done! No need to apologize about the cookie and XBOX controller, I have those lying around my house as well. <br /> <br />Thanks for sharing! <br /> <br />GM
Thank you it is my first Instructable so I was nervous
