When it comes to rifles, there’s nothing like a bolt-action .308. Especially when it’s a tremendous value like this Mossberg ATR 100. Synthetic stock, light weight (6.6 lbs.), super accurate. And too often, even when we get a gun this good, we don’t give as much thought to one of the most useful accessories for it — a sling. When it comes to slings, there’s nothing like Andy’s Leather 2 Point Practical Sling. Aptly named, this is a bridle leather sling attaching to two points on a rifle. Although there are several theories on slings and how they attach to your gun and how to intertwine your arms in one for maximum stability, sometimes it’s hard to beat a basic, everyday setup like this — one best suited for traditional carry of a rifle.

Practical indeed, these slings by Andy’s Leather measure either 1″ or 1.25″ and come in black, walnut brown or chestnut brown. As for price, it’s only $40 for the sling. Plan on adding $10 for a 2-pack of swivel attachments if you have a gun such as the Mossberg which only provides the holes for the swivel attachments in its stocks. Out of the box, Andy’s Leather sling attached to the Mossberg easily, requiring about 20 to 30 seconds to fully install and adjust to size. The brass buckle is easy to manipulate but latches firmly in place for confident and comfortable carry. See all those holes in the sling? That means there’s a huge range for how large you want the sling loop to be. On the shoulder, in a traditional carry mode, the leather sling grabbed and held nicely to hunting jackets and other outerwear, no matter what material they were made of — another benefit of leather. Looks great with this gun, too!
