What is the "?" What part did you not understand? Are you saying this is in use by Russian s12 ops? Or just shooting in the dark? I really have no idea and would like to know. Of course I can slap an AK sling on, but what fun would that be?

While this appears to be an AK sling - it is listed as Russian while I was searching Saiga -

Good luck with your search. Would be interested to see what you find out.

I commend anyone who wants to stay "authentic". There are plenty of armchair commandos who keep the tacticool market going...
However, as much as I prefer authenticity, I also like functionality. So I compromised and went with a Chinese AK sling (with the leather tabs). That's what I have on all my variant rifles.

I didn't want the jingly clasp of the Russian so I went with the Chinese SKS sling with the leather tabs. Got them from Gunbroker. New and still sealed in the wax paper from the Vietnam era. $8 each.

They are just not quite as wide as the Russian though.

Um, no you didn't strike a nerve.

This is for informational purposes...please, if you suspect that they are using this I would like to know. If you have no idea and are just saying it because the rusmil sells it doesn't really help me now.

Personally I have never seen a picture of a Russian with a S12 that had sling on. Still since it doesn’t come with one from the factory they most likely buy an aftermarket one to use, so technically any Russian sling could be a possibility.

also beef on the official Izhmash Saiga 12 video the only part where they show a sling is towards the end when they come out from beind the truck and run up the ramp into the window of a house.

but not everyone was using a sling only the guys holding the ramps and i dont know if they had s12's or just a ak rifle its hard to tell in the video

also hard to tell what slings they were using looks like one guy was using a black sling and the other was using a light colored sling that could be the surplus green or it could very well be the yellow one that was posted by AZG but im not sure the video quality is to bad to tell.

i dunno beef give it a look yourself and see

Well, a friend(former respected member with much knowledge) pointed out something nice to me. The Russians will not proof their products in English! So that sling is clearly a knock off. I have many collector proof marks in Cyrillic. Not engrish.

I'd be suprised if it was any different from a standard AK sling. Ruskies have the "if it aint broke don't tacticool it" mentality. Wouldn't expect anything fancy.

Those were mine got them from Tantal a few years back. He's since ran out. They were sold to me by him as "correct" Saiga 12 slings and I saw a picture on I believe it was the militaryphotos forum of a spetsnaz unit running a very similar looking sling. Which is where my assumption came from. Still have a stack of the brown tabbed but sold all the black.
ETA: Oh and they do have Cyrillic markings stamped into the leather. I think the made in stamps were put on post import probably to help with sales and recognition or something.

yea, talkguns.ru has a saiga section...but I am not quite sure about posting and translation applying which is why I never have posted over there. If someone who is bilingual would be so kind as to help. One million internets to whosoever can provide something definitive. :drevil:

they are not just navy blue, they are naval infantry use as well. Which would put them in use on ak74s or different type. I think. I have two of these also. :victory:
