Default 550 cord sling

My wife helped a lot with our first attempt at a sling. We made it little small and with just some key chain rings. Its gonna work good as a single point for my hunting rifle. I got motivated and did a little digging around yesterday. I measured one of my leather slings, got a set of sling swivels, and got to work. This is what I made last night and this morning. Did just black for the inner layer. Then did coyote and black for the outer layer. I was thrilled with how it came out. Notice the difference in design from front to back. I stuck to the rule of thumb for 1inch of stitch use 1 ft of cord. It was enough and not to much extra. Now to get a rifle to put it on.

I just made this one for my Marlin Model 60 a couple of days ago. It took about 3 hours.

I recently made a paracord sling for my 597, I thought I liked the color of the cord but now that its on my rifle I am not thrilled with it. It may be the knot I used as well. I do like the cobra weave you used. I should re-do it with a different knot and see how it looks.
Nice job on the slings.
