Back during your Paracord Contest, I made myself a Paracord watch band from one of the Instructables using the weaving method. That got me to thinking. I needed a new sling for one of my deer rifles. Looking on the Internet there are some people out there making them, but the price is way out of my reach for something that I could make myself. Looking over all the Instructables that involve, watch bands and belts I had a pretty good Idea of what I wanted. I have made two of them so far…one in Desert Sand and the other Multi Camo Paracord. In this instructable I will use pictures taken form each of the builds.
100’ of Para cord (I used about 80’)
Needle nose pliers, or forceps, pic
Wood board, flat washers and some screws
Swivels off your gun
Step 2: Para Wrap
First off you need to wrap the cord so it will pass under and over… in the weaving process. Follow this link for the best way that I found to do this
I didn’t wrap mine as tight as this guy, I just needed a small bundle to work with.
To start you will need to find out how long of sling you will need for your gun. The strap will not be adjustable when you are done. I used a sling off another gun to find my length, or you can just use a piece of paracord and some trial and error.
Once you found the size that fits you best, mount your swivels on the board using the screws and washers. Keeping that distance between them.
