Anybody know where I could find one of these? The only one I was able to find was one from Wilderness SLING (http://thewilderness.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/1_9_16/products_id/189) , but they have no pictures of it and I'm not sure if what they're offering with it is the side loop adapter that they say you need.

If you are talking about the storm "tactical sling", be warned that it velcro's to the front of the gun.

It is the only sling of this sort I have, perhaps that is common, but I expected something more substantial.

They seem to be in short supply (my wholesaler is out), but if you want I could sell you mine ( opened, but not installed). PM/email me if interested.

(And since you are in NJ, it is probably the *only* thing I could sell you -- or have they banned 'assault slings' yet?)

Not yet.......but PLEASE don't give them any more ideas!

Is the velcro sturdy? I don't really like the sound of that too much either. Would be kinda pointless to let the gun drop on the sling just to have it fall off.

I found another sling that uses an adapter where you attach a sling loop to the beretta side rail. The sling itself looks good, but when you add the price of the sling plus that of the accessory kit you're gettin pretty pricey for a darn sling. :scrutiny:

It seems to be sturdy, for velcro. But velco sturdy is not canvas and metal hardware sturdy...

I like to use the sling as a brace while shooting, and i suspect the velcro won't hold well enough for that.

Yeah, that's pricey. I was thinking $25 plus shipping.

If you can wait til tommorrow evening, I can try to get some pics...

That sounds a whole lot better to me. I would appreciate it if you could get some pics of it and how it looks. Also do you have the instructions for putting it on?

Thanks

The sling came with NO instructions, but Beretta email me this:

You should have received a long sling and a short strap with a buckle.
This sling is attached at the front by wrapping the Velcro around the forend.
At the rear you loop the shorter buckle strap through the buttstock swivel then put the rear loop of the long sling through the short strap before buckling. The short strap is what attaches the sling to the rear stock swivel.
This allows you to carry the Storm at your side and at the ready position, the sling can be adjusted so you may cross it over your opposite carry shoulder and have the rifle rest in front of you also ready for action.
Thank you for contacting Beretta Customer Support.


I will get the digital camera and get a pic up asap.

Cool thanks for the instructions. Hopefully the picture will shed a bit more light onto how it goes on there. :)

Here is the pic. The velcro loop is at the left side, and you can see the small loop in the upper right that will attach to the rear stock swivel.

Doesn't look too bad I guess. Have you installed it on a storm yet? If so how did it feel and did it really hold the gun securely in offside drop carry? Also does the rear part mount to the sling stud or the loop that is imbedded in the side of the stock?

I took it out of the bag, looked at it, had no clue how to attach it, put it back in the bag, and emailed Beretta.

I have not had time to get back to it since I recieved their reply.

It seems very sturdy (except the velcro...I just don't seem to like the velcro).

The small loop in the upper right of the pic is sized to go in the loop in the side of the stock.
