In the 70's and early 80's Remington supplied a simple 7/8" leather carry strap with their 700 bdl's. Not very fancy, front end had a brass screw nut with flathead both sides. It came set up with Uncle Mike's style quick detachables on both ends. The butt end had a buckle for lengthening or shortening the sling to fit and a leather loop slider to keep it in place at the rear swivel. Today you have to hunt for them, they are hard to come by, look at the used leather box at your lgs or at pawn shops. Most don't comprehend how simple and good they are so 5 to 15 will get you one when you find them. For a new sling / carry strap it's pretty hard to beat Pat Sinclairs " Montana sling " out of Glasgow ,Montana. He is aka "Scenershooter" on here when he posts here anymore...mb
Huh! My old 700 BDL came with that strap on it (bought used) I Didn't realize it came from Remington.
Thanks for that info Magnum Bob.
