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:
(I chose camo and orange)
-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.
Step 2: Starting The Sling
I do apologize for not knowing the exact amount as when I made mine I under calculated so I had to keep adding more. I believe about 25' for each outside and about 40' should be about enough but if not u can just add more my sling is roughly 3 1/2' long.
I used three different colors to show the weave pattern but you can use 1-3 on this sling. For mine I used 2 to make it more uniform. First pick out what colors you want and where you want them the center strands will b the center color for both the center of the sling and the outsides as u will see. You now have to put all three cord sections into slip knots. If you don't know how I have pictures to help you. Your inside cord section has to be pulled even while the outside sections should have the inside of the two strands just a little longer that the length you want your sling the outer of the two strands will be a lot longer which is good.
Step 3: Starting The Weave
Now that you have your three strands on your swivel you can now begin the weave. This weave is almost the same as the cobra weave just with more cords. I'm not good at explaining so I hope the pictures help and just make sure it's tight.
