PIG HK Hook Pigtail for Drop-Slider Sling
The new PIG Drop-Slider Sling is a culmination of years of shooter experience and input, that helps maximize the strengths of the single-point design, while eliminating it's critical weakness- the transition of your carbine or SMG to your center line. Other single-point sling designs hang your primary weapon directly in the way of your knees, impeding mobility, and in some instances striking the operator's groin. The only way to prevent this with traditional designs is to completely rotate the main sling body, which requires a deliberate and long pulling motion.
Enter the PIG Drop-Slider Sling, which has a short "Pigtail" that attaches to the body of the sling with a metal rectangular ring, allowing full speed transitions to deposit your primary firearm to the lowest point in the loop- which is on your side, and NOT in your way.
Both the Mk-1 and Mk-2 (bungee version) offer you a host of unique features and options.
- Lightweight 1" webbing minimizes bulk while retaining strength and function.
- Tubular nylon "Pad" enhances comfort while reducing bulk and stiffness.
- Emergency release buckle that disengages the sling loop so the operator can get in an out in a hurry.
- Choice of 3 different "Pigtails" for attaching to weapon (available separately).
- Pigtails allows for modularity and gives a secondary release capability.
- Made in USA!
To order the PIG Drop-Slider Sling, select the Pigtail attachment of your choice. Each Pigtail offers a different attachment mode, and features a side release buckle for quick and easy removal of the host weapon from the sling body. This setup also allows you to keep several different firearms setup with Pigtails that can easily be clipped into Drop-Slider bodies. You can have one Drop-Slider body configured for use over light clothing and another for use over heavy body armor, and a host of clip-in weapon systems via an array of multiple Pigtails.
Made with the finest materials and workmanship for PIG by First Spear, the beauty of this sling lies in its sheer effectiveness, affordability and simplicity. If your tired old single-point sling is ready to go, upgrade to the best single-point sling on the market- the PIG Drop-Slider!
I have no problem paying for quality gear with even better customer service. When I need something...its SKD..no reason going anywhere else.
It's simple. A quality HK hook, on a quality ITW buckle, well stitched here in the good ole' US of A. Only possible gripe is that if the webbing were 1/2" or 3/4" longer I feel as though transitions would not be as stiff.
Worked perfect, great quality.
I ordered three of these to use with my existing PIG sling. As a point of reference, these hooks are NOT as substantial as the ones used on Maxpedition gear, Voodoo Tactical blood type tags, or ones I have seen on .mil/.gov issue gear. That does not mean I think they would fail, it's just that the metal is thinner that I expected. Quality seems decent, locks up nice and tight with no play. Finish seems a little iffy, but then again, I've never had a hook that's finish did stand up to sustained use. We will put them though the ringer and see how they do... Given the three types of these, I prefer the web attachment one the best. To me, hooks are not the best form of attachment due to noise and metal on metal wear. You WILL end up replacing the hooks over time, it's not a question of if but when with all HK-type hook attachments.
Needed extra pig-tail for another firearm . I should have just the up-dated PIG w/ the bungee. great product
Well made, does what it is designed to do.
