I'm looking for a web sling as they were made in the 1950s for parks rifles and other guns. It will be a very wide canvas web sling with the tab ends sewn to fish hook type swivels. I've had a gun for years that calls for this particular setup and I'd love a period piece. Usually, people cut the swivels fishooks off and sell them to unsuspecting winchester fans as "authentic winchester". I'd love to find the original item.

The fish hook swivels were made by Parker Hale for about everyone in the business. They came with Lee Speeds, Cogswell & Harrison rifles, Enfield sporters, and all of the lower to mid-tier birmingham trade rifles.

I'd be in someone's debt if they have one to sell. (or trade if you like barter for vintage odd gun stuff)

My Cogswell & Harrison .375 (a 1951 model) has the wide sling eyes that were meant to work with these fishhook swivels and web sling and I'd like to have the correct original style product again.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
