Our "premium" Brown Bess sling is hand crafted by C.A. Davisson Leatherworks in Texas; a company that specializes in reproducing authentic military leather goods. It is an exact copy of the British-made Brown Bess sling made with real "white Buff" leather imported from England - not bleached or painted like the stuff coming out of India. It is the only historically accurate option for those who wish to outfit their British musket or rifle with a correct sling. Davisson's slings are meticulously researched copies of originals. Like the originals, this sling is made of lightweight leather; much thinner than other reproductions. This again, is a feature found on original slings as most reproduction slings are made from much heavier leather than what's found on original pieces. These slings are perfect for a discerning reenactor or collector who needs a historically accurate sling to go with his defarbed or original weapon.
