The Proctor Sling from Way of the Gun

The good folks at Weapon Outfitters made us aware of the Proctor Sling from Way of the Gun. Designed by Special Forces Veteran and IDPA USPSA Grand Master Frank Proctor, it is a two-point adjustable sling that is designed to be attached without any additional hardware. Lack of mounting hardware is of the things that I constantly run across. It never fails that someone will show up to a class I’m in without a sling / mounting hardware or I’ll have a chance to shoot a new weapon at a range and once again, no way to mount a sling. That alone makes this sling worth taking a look at.


It uses 550 cord on either end to attach to the weapon. At the rear you utilize a girth hitch through the QD mount or other slot on the stock. At the front it is slid down over the barrel to the hand guard and kept fast by cinching tight in a groove in the Picatinny rail.


Excess webbing on the adjustable end of the Proctor sling remains stored so there’s nothing loose to get in the way or be stepped on.

Available in Black, Coyote and MultiCam.

    Frank’s sling is excellent. Nothing new with using 550 to make a jungle sling, but it was a stroke of genius to design a sling with that attachment in this day and age of 70$ mounts and QD attachments. Light weight,low profile and cost effective. You just have to make sure you’re using a long enough forend to keep it from being melted to your barrel. Btw Frank’s a USPSA Grandmaster, not IDPA.

    I have a couple of these slings.
    They are excellent, very comfortable to use and very low profile.

    Nice product. It’s hard to go wrong with using the K.I.S.S. principle.

    How well does the front end cord deal with heat?

    That looks like an ideal sling for FNs SCAR 16s and 17s.
