    Remmy Model 7 on the sling

    Reflecting on a recent hunt that involved a lot of carrying a std Model 7 on the sling - do they always tend to "tip over" ?? Mine kept going from vertical down my back to nearly horizontal under my arm despite lots of sling length adjustments. Its only got a 3-9x40 scope on it so I don't think thats an issue. I have other light rifles and they don't "tip over" so maybe its something to do with the placement of the sling studs on the Model 7 . . . bloody annoying - any thoughts?

    Don't use a sling?
    I find rifle slings a total pain in the butt personally

    @Pengy - I find it depends a bit on what terrain you're in and what other gear you need. I frequently do carry my rifle "in hand", but in steep stuff like going through bluffs or if you're carrying a hill stick - I "need" a sling.

    Steep stuff means my rifle goes in the built in scabbard on my pack, whilst I scramble up or down using my poofter stick (s)

    The Remington 7 is naturally but heavy . You can correct the balance by fitting a lighter stock (carbon fibre), a suppressor ( heavier muzzle ) or a longer forehand stock where the connection point of the sling will be closer to the end of the muzzle.

    Try putting a cable tie around the barrel and attach the sling so that it can slide up and down the barrel, rifle sits pretty well.

    If you watch the Duley show you will see they just have the forend end of the sling in a loop and around the barrel, this also allows you to fit the bipod a bit faster too, as you don't have to take a sling off first.

    Sling not that long, so it can't slip off the end.

    Mines a niggeloh sling which has rubber threads weaves into the webbing so it grips the barrel well, but it works without the rubber also. Doesnít slide because itís pulling at right angle to the barrel.

    The old Brnos used to be like that too. You need the foreward sling attachment moved higher up to the muzzle so the centre of gravity is higher so it will hang vertically. Thats what the old barrel band with an sling eye on the old stalking rifles was for, it stopped that.
    You can just loop the end of the sling around the barrel, but I find that annoying as shit, for philosphical reasons. Seems half arsed. Also as the weight of the rifle pulls it lower and that slides the sling as high as it will go the sling then seems to get too tight and you have to keep adjusting it.

    Fit a proper barrel band, or try the mag tube attachment that lever guns have, that would amount to the same thing if your barrel is the right size. They sell them in a packet with a rear sling stug and semi circle barrel band with a sling eye, this last intended to go on the magazine tube of a lever action rifle. Just screws together with an allen key. You dont need to do any soldering.

    do what guys with suppressors do...swap it to offside shoulder and carry it upsidedown muzzle forward...your hand will rest nicely on forstock,with bonus that on a rainy day water runs out of action/barrel channel, instead of into it.
