    Weird one: Trying to match a peculiar foreign-issue sling

    As the C8 clone nears completion, it's time to turn my attention to accessories--to whit, finding a suitable mimic for the OMG-craptastic bastardization Ottawa just foisted off on Canadian troops. A buddy up there sent me this pic as a reference:



    It looks like it has some elements of a Vickers 221, some of a Magpul MS3 or MS4, a cheap crap bungie and a whole buncha other bastardization along with antique MASH hooks. My buddy says out in the field they pretty much bring their own Magpul, Vickers or VTACs, so that's on the table as an option for "Field Mod," but I want to at least be able to say I gave it the old college try on a by-the-book facsimile. I've checked the catalogs from most of the major players I've seen recommended as reputable around here, and I came up dry, so now I'm crowdsourcing... Any of you guys out there ever seen anything that would be a passable "function-alike" for this abomination?
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    The Nordic sling looks to be like a standard M16/M4 sling except polymer buckles instead of metal.

    No luck on searching either. Those appear to be HK hooks instead of mash hooks though.

    - Either you're part of the problem or you're part of the solution or you're just part of the landscape - Sam (Robert DeNiro) in, "Ronin" -

    Also, Nordic doesn't ship to the US. I've asked them about things before and basically got "Sucks to be you, neighbor."

    Found one on a Canadian site similar to the one The War Wagon found, with the main difference being the lack of the Pentagon shaped loop I assume allows 2 point to 1 point conversion.

    Not sure if it would help, but can you get better pics of the part numbers on the buckles?

    Looks like there is a quick release snap and buckle assembly under that one section of elastic too.

    I'll see what my buddy can tell me and get back to you--he's on the inside with CF and even he hasn't been able to come up with a supplier or NSN. (Doesn't help that Canada is rather tighter about their surplus materiel than we are with ours, either.)
