SKD Tactical – PIG SMS Sling

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014


The PIG Swift Mechanical Support (SMS) Sling combines aspects of a Quick Adjust 2-point sling and traditional Loop sling into an adaptable weapons retention and shooting platform. The SMS includes a support strap, which connects to a midway point on the rifle just forward of the action. When the SMS is utilized as a 2-point sling, this strap stays out of the way, however when a supported shooting stance is needed, the user only has to thread their arm through the forward loop created by the front and support strap, re-grasp the forend, and touch their elbow to any solid contact point (knee, vehicle, wall, etc.) to anchor their firearm.


Available in Black, Coyote Brown, and Ranger Green. Made in the USA.
