Blue Force Gear has spent more than a year putting together its all new “retro-Soviet” sling.

The result of the manufacturer’s work is the Limited Edition AK Sling.

For the front connection point, Blue Force Gear chose an original Russian AK snap hook that it carefully sewn into its premium 1.25-inch sling webbing.

Next, Blue Force Gear channeled the retro 1980s AK vibe by creating custom polymer hardware that matches the famous “plum” coloring that legend says resulted from the Russians not quite getting their black coloring right.

For the label, Blue Force Gear used a process never before employed to mark a BFG sling: Ink stamping.

Finally, to make this sling the ultimate complement to your AK, Blue Force Gear added a premium leather pull tab to our Quick Adjuster.

Due to the limited number of original hardware components, Blue Force Gear has limited this version to less than 500 pieces worldwide.

The Limited Edition AK Sling retails for $64.99 and is available now.
