    Butler Creek Utility Nylon Web Rifle Sling, I would put money on it being as light as you'll get, its basic, metal clips so hard wearing, coils up to the size of a golf ball. Its the one I carry in my pack untill needed. Cheap to, about $25, you just need to add the pins that connect to swivel studs.
    And it's black.

    I have had all sorts of fancy slings and have settled on this, its a "crappy" chinese sling that come with some norinco rifles, its bloody comfy, no nonsense, light and simple, and strong as. Its like the Bahco knife of rifle slings, a genuine bargain. I think you can get them from trademe too a dime a dozen from those blokes that sell all the silly airsoft stuff.

    I was looking for the same thing and ordered this: https://www.marine-deals.co.nz/allen...g-with-swivels

    Haven't used it yet, so can't really comment, but it is light/basic and seems to do the job.

    I make my own from black or green tubular webbing, 26mm usually but 19 will do for a light rifle. Just double it through the sling swivels and do a water knot once you've got the length right. the beauty of this sling is you can use it doubled (both bits of webbing together) over one shoulder or split over both shoulders - a very secure across your back carry for when you need both hands on a steep bit or you need to throw your knibby at a dog.

    A piece of webbing (your choice of width) and two ladder locks. Simple, super light.

    They are good, don't slip off your shoulder as the sling has a bit of stretch which prevents the rifle from trying to hop off. Just loop the top off the sling over the barrel and adjust it so I can still slide on the barrel, the webbing has rubber fibres in it so it doesn't slide when your carrying it. Then you just need a tikka sling swivel for the butt end, I might have a spare

    Got a pic of your set up? I can poach the swivels off another sling no probs. I was going to hold off and see what they had in Sweden etc...worth it you think? Or get something here?
