Service Rifle Sling Question

I see that there are 2 sling options for CMP and NRA service rifle competition. The Garand web sling that only attaches from your arm to the front swivel, and the leather 03 Springfield sling that attaches to the front and rear swivels with your arm in the loop.

My question is, can I configure the leather sling to fit like the web sling ? No attachment to the rear swivel.

Yes, you can. In sitting and prone, neither type is attached to the rear swivel.

You may find these two links useful:

Leather sling

Have fun!

Really good clinic from one of the best. Service Rifle comp will teach you marksmanship skills like few other things. Good luck!

The tail must remain on the leather sling. It can be wrapped around the arm in prone and sitting. The sling must be attached to both swivels in the standing position.
