BlackHawk P90 sling

Blackhawk
P90 Sling


Instructions:
Blackhawk’s P-90 sling is simple to install. Put the hook
and loop strap through the rear stock sling attachment point
on the P-90. Then put the Velcro end of strap through the
metal loop at the other end of the strap. The strap has a
nylon gap between the hook and loop portion of the strap.
Now fold it over and attach the hook and loop part of the
strap together until it ends right at the sling attachment
loops on the strap. Now clip the sling clips onto the sling
strap loops. Adjust sling for length and your sling is now
complete.



Review:
My first sling that I purchased for my P-90 was from
FN. When I received it, I was really disappointed. Then
I started to considered BlackHawk‘s
Chalker Tac Sling ( Catalog # 70DC00 / 70DC01 ) which
sells for $60USD and $80USD. After taking a close look
at a Chalker sling, I determined that the Chalker sling
wasn’t very P-90 friendly or anything like the sling
used on STARGATE SG-1, and was too expensive for my
wallet. For quite sometime I thought I was going to
be stuck with that shoddy FN sling. (thanks
go out to StormLeader
for the SG1 images)


Then I went to EAG’s event DIVISION, where I saw BlackHawk‘s
add for a P-90 Tactical Sling in the second issue of
FPS magazine that I received for subscribing. I couldn’t
believe it, and I still couldn’t believe it after I
purchased the sling from Mike. The P-90 Tactical sling
from BlackHawk
( Catalog #: 70GS06BK ) retails for just under
$30USD. It’s a real bargain and as always Blackhawk
guarantees their products for life.


Obviously,
the most attractive feature of this sling isn’t just because
it’s made by BlackHawk,
but because you can FINALLY sling your P-90 just like on the
show, STARGATE SG-1.

Comments: As you can tell,
setting up the sling is easy. It’s just a hook and loop tape
band that wraps through and then around the rear stock and
has two attachment loops that the sling clips onto at both
ends of the sling. However, I initially felt that adjusting
the sling stra[ it’s self was a little more time consuming
than most slings that I have used. But once you’ve made adjustments
to it a few times, it becomes quicker to adjust in a hurry.

When you purchase this sling you also might want to consider
purchasing the Comfort Pad (Catalog #: 70SS02BK). Slinging
your P-90 SG-1 style will become tiring without a comfort
pad. After a while that P-90 will feel like it’s a lead brick
handing from your neck. Thankfully BlackHawk
thought about this. The sling was made with plenty of slack
material to allow you to carry your P-90 under your arm with
the P-90 resting up against your kidney. I’m sure not disappointed
and neither will you.

In the forums around the world a lot of us have
been chatting about the rigs used in the recent
series of Stargate SG1 (seen in the image
to the right).

Airsoft
Dynamics
(AD) have been listening,
which is always a good thing, and now have a nice
new P90 sling coming soon, for more info check their
news section
.
Now
it should be noted that the AD version isn’t
100% true to the ones found in the SG1 series.

BlackHawk
also make a version of the aforementioned sling,
but again it’s not 100% accurate, but being made
by BH it’s very well designed but pricey.
Another version of interest is the Chalker
sling, it’s made by a guy with plenty of experiance
with real world scenarios. This version is similar,
but again not quite the same as the one from the
series. Having said that it looks very functional.

more information I would highly recommend having

Do you remember our post about SG1 P90 slings? Well
just to keep everyone in the loop…

AirsoftDynamics
sell their own version
,
BlackHawk
also make a version of the aforementioned sling,
but both of these are not 100% accurate. Another
version of interest is the Chalker
sling, it’s made by a guy with plenty of experiance
with real world scenarios. This version is similar,
but again not quite the same as the one from the
series. Having said that it looks very functional.

Well
we have a ‘new kid on the block’ so to speak.
Graeme
Haddock
has been in talks with with a tactical
gear manufacturer for the past 2 months or so exchanging
many e-mails, thoughts and pictures regarding the
(now famous in the Airsoft world) Stargate FNP90
Tactical harness.

After many prototypes and ‘re-thinks’ of the design,
they have came up with what they term as an exact
replica
of the SG1 P90 Tac harness. It operates
in exactly the same manner as the version used in
the TV programme. Here’s what Graeme had to say:

“Here
is the copy of the e-mail I received from the company,
detailing the products operation and price. I have
also included the pictures of the finished version.
I must point our that I’m not making any profit
on the sale of these harnesses, I’m doing it for
the benefit of the airsoft public.

If
we can get more than 25 people interested, the slings
will cost around £55 each, including p+p.
They should be ready for purchase in around 3 weeks.

“Graeme, The harness design is sound…full
adjustablity…front straps are 12 inches long with
sliders…..side/rear straps have dual adjustments(as
requested).. these straps are 36 inches long (each
side)…this left plenty of additional material
on me…(I am approx. 46 inch chest) The 5 point
buckle appears to be identical to the one in your
photo’s I made 3 versions of the gun strap, photo’s
to follow.

Now
with this all said and done…I can you offer the
following pricing. I would prefer to send you just
a single “Harness assembly” before going
into full production. This has been a interesting
project from the aspect of creating a item form
a few incomplete photo’s…being a shooter my self
it is relatively easy to understand the final fit
and function. BUT…I would prefer to have your
final input.


  • 1 to 15 units $80.00 plus S&H
  • 16
    to 25 units $70.00 plus S&H
  • 26
    to 50 units $60.00 plus S&H – [This amount
    is what I’m hoping to achieve, at least]
  • 51
    to 100 units $55.00 Plus S&H

In
consideration of my time and materials I request
that your initial order be for a minimum of 10 units….this
will cover my prototyping and development time and
materials.”

If anybody would like to reserve a P90 Tactical
harness, please send your details (Name, Address
and Telephone number) to Graeme via email
ghwalsc4ever@haddock58.fsnet.co.uk
(Graeme will get back to you as soon as they
become available for purchase)
