This is well made sling that sells for considerably higher price elsewhere.
It compliments custom walnut stock on my Marlin XS7 rifle nicely, stitch and hardware are well blended with no obvious imperfections and complement other features on the stock.
The only drawback is that, like most leather slings, has a lot of stiffness in wide section due to thickness and two layers of leather being bonded together.
This is only an issue if using a sling wrapped around arm for stability when shooting in standing position.
Thin, webbed nylon and neoprene combo sling works best for that, although standing being the worst choice of shooting position, this has little if any significance at all.
I anticipate to see some of that stiffness go away with use over time, in fact, some intentional massage and bending of the sling should accelerate the process somewhat, perhaps with a little help from leather conditioner too.
Very good buy for the price and free shipping to local store, I highly recommend it.
