Good news........

They are less expensive these days

I am currently making these on a CNC lathe and was able to decrease my cost by 20%

The bead blasted bare aluminum studs are now $40 shipped to any USA state.

Powder coated ones are $45 each and will be offered in tan and olive as there is not enough interest in black

I also accept PayPal plus the fee.......$1.50

Very cool. It's nice to see a campfire venture succeed.

Finally installed mine, last weekend, and this weekend took it off to do the locktite. I did some hiking around with it and I am sold on this! With some adjustments to my sling and how my rifle rests on my pack, with the slingamarig added it pretty much locks my rifle into place. very easy to traverse over rough terrain and do it all hands free without worrying about my rifle. If anyone is on the fence, order it, you won't be disappointed. I'll be ordering some more soon for family and my other pack.

Thanks for the review Brent

Yes.....it is a simple, lightweight devise......but this is by design

After 2 years of making tweeks I think we hit it just about right.

The button is just big enough to to do it's job but small enough to stay out of the way.

The undercut allows more than enough bite to work with even thick, wide slings.

A misconception is that the washer will hurt you during use.

To clear this up....the rear washer sinks into the padding of the pack straps so deeply it is never noticed even with a heavy load.

So, where is the EXACT spot for mounting if you're gonna poke a hole in your $200 + backpack?

Ted-, it's an imaginative idea and I always admire skills such as yours. It fits a definite need.

Years ago, Browning made a high end coat that had a "pebbled-textured" rubber patch on the shoulder top to provide texture and friction to hold the sling in place. I don't know if they still do.

It worked better than the slick, synthetic material for holding your sling in place which it didn't and you didn't have to be wearing a pack -- there's another idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have two of them. One of them is the original Duck Commander apparel from Browning which was a long time before they became widely known.

I just finished the second run of studs.

I now have a stock of the "gray" bead blasted aluminum studs

Studs for powdercoat have been delivered to the coating house and should be done soon.

I like the idea. Haven't found time to even mountbthe scopes on my last two customs or I would find a coat to put one on.

To respond to Dre, I invent things a lot of times because they are needed or need to be invented. Haven't gotten "paid" persae for any designs. Have gained respect of Collegues, made lives and jobs easier, and been blessed with more opportunities than I deserve. If it was only money a lot of things wouldn't exist. In fact, I am pretty certain the majority of Start-Ups aren't close to profitable for the first 4-5 years. I get the impression Ted does these because he saw a need, likes the intellectual stimulation, and likes seeing his design being used by his Friends. Pretty sure 20 or 50 dollars he isn't retiring. I get the impression he isn't the retiring type anyway.

Thanks for the kind words gremcat.

Havn't tried a Feankenstud Slingamarig Sling on a coat but It probably would work as long as the zipper was pulled up high enough.
