Product Highlights

Blue Force Vickers 2-TO-1 Sling, Black, Acetal Adjuster, Red Swivel Version

While 2 point slings are ideal for most situations, there are times - deploying from a vehicle or fighting in complex structures - when a 1 point sling has a clear advantage. Combining our new polymer Burnsed Socket and patented RED Swivel, the Vickers 221 Sling allows users to switch from two point to one point mode instantly by pulling on the RED Swivel knob and reinserting it in to the Burnsed Socket at the rear of the receiver.  The instantaneous adjustability of the sling is still maintained in both 1 and 2 point modes. 

Constructed similar to the world’s standard Vickers Combat Applications Sling™, a RED Swivel is sewn to the front of the sling towards the muzzle.  A standard push button swivel and new molded Burnsed Socket are woven on to the rear allowing full adjustability of the sling for use with or without body armor. 

The 221™ Sling fits any weapon with two QD sling swivel sockets with the rear socket towards the end of the receiver. For SCARS, Sigs, HKs, or other weapon systems with eyelets at the rear of the receiver, a Universal Wire Loop with Push Button Socket can be added instead of the included push button socket. 

 

Fits:

Weapons with two Push Button Sling Swivel sockets at the front and rear of the weapon

***For weapons with eyelets at the rear of the receiver (SCAR, Sig, HK), add a Universal Wire Loop with Push Button Socket to the rear of the sling

 

Sizing:

Overall sling length adjustability is maintained through the use of Acetal triglides on the sling

 

Sling Build:

  • 1.25" sling webbing
  • 2.00" tubular webbing with closed cell foam padding for padded models
  • Invista solution dyed Cordura webbing
  • ITW GhilleTex Acetal hardware - a military grade, low IR plastic

RED Swivel Build:

  • Machined steel, phosphated for maximum corrosion resistance
  • Nylon coated,  double crimped directly to 7 strand stainless steel aircraft cable
  • Textured sphero-conical shaped pull knob

Blue Force Rail Mounted Fixed Loop (RMFL), 1.25"
$32.99
Blue Force Universal Wire Loop Adapter, 3.25", Black

The Universal Wire Loop is one of the most versatile sling attachment points made.  A flexible nylon coated stainless steel wire allows for a sling attachment through eyelets, loops, slots, or any other opening that the wire fits through. The UWL™ is available in two sizes, one with a 6.25” length and one in 3.25” for different applications.

The sling loop body is CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum billet before being tumbled and bead-blasted for a non-reflective surface. The loop is hard-coat anodized before the nylon coated stainless steel aircraft-grade cable is installed with ball-shank ends. The result is a sling adapter with limitless uses.  Cable outer coating may deform if subjected to extreme barrel heat but the stainless core will not melt.

Universal Wire Loops are quieter and stronger than traditional hook attachments and wont wear through eyelets.

Blue Force RED Rapid Emerg. Detach Swivel, 1.25" Loop, Phosphate Finish

The RED Swivel is a true emergency quick release swivel that allows the user to quickly free himself from his weapon for emergency egress and other times when the user must untangle himself from his weapon.  The patent pending RED Swivel – Rapid Emergency Detachment Swivel – replace standard push button sling swivels with a pull-knob emergency release swivel that fits any standard push button sockets, sockets inset in popular handguards and stocks, the Burnsed Socket, or the Rail Mounted Push Button Socket. 

Operation

The patent pending RED™ Swivel releases with a straight pull on the sphereo-conical knob instead of the fine motor operation of the "push-pull" of standard push button swivels.  Only 7 pounds of force is needed to install or release the swivel however accidental release is minimized by the knob shape and angle of operation.  A pull of more than 15 degrees off axis will not release the connection elminated the possibility of release if caught in vehicles, doorways, other gear, or brush. 

Uses

If you work with a rifle over or near water or in other conditions where sling entrapment is a substantial risk, the RED Swivel can prove invaluable.  The RED swivel can be paired with the Burnsed Socket or a Universal Wire Loop- with push button (available separately) to make the fastest 2 to 1 point sling. See the Applications Tab for more uses.

RED Swivel Care

Like all push button swivels, RED Swivels should be oiled periodically to maintain smooth operation.  Make it a habit to oil them every time you clean and lube your rifle.

 

Uses:

  • Designed with airborne and maritime operations in mind
  • Vehicular or mounted use
  • Entry teams and urban applications
  • Tube fighting

Fits:

  • Vickers Combat Applications Slings and other variants
  • Most common 1" or 1.25" slings
  • Standard push button / QD swivel sockets integral to weapons, handguards, buttstocks or Rail Mounted Push Button Swivel Socket

 

Hardware Sizing:

1" RED Swivel

  • 1" Sling Loop fits any 1" or 1.25" sling webbing. Recommended for use on the standard Vickers Combat Applications Sling™

1.25" RED Swivel

  • 1.25" Sling Loop fits any 1.25 or 1.5" sling webbing. Can be used on Vickers Slings but will have more "play" where the webbing loops through the swivel

Build:

  • Machined steel, phosphated for maximum corrosion resistance
  • Nylon coated,  double crimped directly to 7 strand stainless steel aircraft cable
  • Textured sphero-conical shaped pull knob
  • Stainless Steel internals

Blue Force RED Rapid Emerg. Detach Swivel, 1.25" Loop, Phosphate Finish
$34.99
Blue Force Push Button QD, 1.25" Loop, Phosphate Finish

The Push Button Sling Swivel provides a secure, quiet sling attachment point and allows slings to be quickly removed and installed on multiple weapons.  The Push Button Sling Swivel can be threaded on to any Vickers Slings. 

The Blue Force Gear Push Button Sling Swivel was designed to be stronger and lighter than the common Push Button QD Swivels.  The smaller swivel body and push button reduces weight while minimizing the chance of accidentally disengaging the swivel.  A larger gauge sling loop gives increased strength and durability.  The Push Button Quick Detach Sling Swivel has a matte phosphate finish for corrosion resistance and signature reduction.

The Push Button Sling Swivels fit all common quick detach (QD Swivel) sockets found on some buttstocks, forends, rails, or aftermarket socket adapters.  Ensure that your weapon has a QD socket to correctly attach the sling to the weapon.  For attaching a Push Button Sling Swivel to railed forends without integral QD sockets, you can use the Rail Mounted Push Button Swivel Socket. 

For a true quick release sling swivel, see the RED Swivel - a push button swivel that is installed and removed by pulling on the emergency release knob.  Contrary to push belief, the common QD swivel is not an emergency release point as the "push then pull" motion is fine motor skill and can be difficult with gloves or in stressful situations.

*** Place a small drop of oil or gun lube down the push button channel every time you clean your weapon to ensure smooth operation and protect the internals from corrosion ***

 

Fits:

  • Vickers Combat Applications Slings™
  • Any 1" or 1.25" Sling
  • Standard push button / QD swivel sockets integral to weapons, handguards, buttstocks or Rail Mounted Push Button Swivel Socket

Sizing:

  • 1" Sling Loop fits any 1" or 1.25" sling webbing. Use this size for standard Vickers Combat Applications Sling™
  • 1.25" Sling Loop fits any 1.25 or 1.5" sling webbing. 

Build:

  • Machined steel, phosphated for maximum corrosion resistance
  • Stainless Steel internals
