I’ve always wanted to put a sling on Condorliza. Let’s face it-it’s a heavy rifle. But I never have. Every time I put the 11mm sling adapters in my shopping cart I read the disappointing reviews then remove them.
Recently, I looked for the perfect sling for my powder burning scout rifle. I never considered slings for anything other than a carry strap, but if the right sling is used properly, it can be used to increase accuracy. I opted for a fast loop style sling for that rifle, but in my research I came across a CW/Ching sling. Supposedly the most stable and fast shooting sling.
So I made a prototype CW/Ching sling:
Here’s how it works:
Slips through support arm. Strap goes as high as possible to increase stability. Pretty simple.
The real question is, does it work?
So I did a test at 25 yards. The target was a 1″ square and number of hits were counted. Setup was CPHP’S 14.3 3000psi PW 1:10.
First was a standard test from the bench:
9/10 with most dead center.
Then I shot from the standing position offhand… as best I could:
2/10 hit the target. Remind me not to shoot offhand at critters. 1 pellet hit about 4″ low.
Then I used the sling:
5/10 on target. Much better!
With airguns, every advantage that gives you better accuracy is a must have, not a nice to have. The total cost is about $4 to make. If you’d like a how-to let me know.
And it doubles as a decent carry strap.
Then I made a nicer version…
Black and blue for my homies.
