Ubfc Oh THE MULTI-PURPOSE CARRYING SLINGS

Description - The unique H&K Multi-purpose slings allow the weapon to be carried one-handed or hands-free and prevents the loss of the weapon should the operator fall or an assailant try to take the weapon away. Due to their design the multi-purpose carrying slings also allow the firer the ability to transition immediately to a back-up weapon should the need arise without the worry of loosing control or possession of the submachine gun.

There are two different multi-purpose carrying slings available from H&K for use on the MP5 submachine gun. The standard multipurpose sling for use by right hand users and the newer ambidextrous multi-purpose carrying sling designed for use by both right and left hand users.

Standard multi-purpose carrying sling - The standard multipurpose carrying sling consists of two lengths of green cotton one inch webbing with various metal attachments. (See illustration # 75A below.

The standard multi-purpose sling attaches only to the left side of the weapon and requires no addition mounting hardware other than that which is incorporated into the webbing of the sling.

A longer standard multi-purpose carrying sling (designed for the larger G3 rifle) is available for larger operators who find the webbing of the MP5 sling too short to allow the weapon to be worn comfortably. It is marked with one vertical hash mark on the webbing near the carbine hook (The MP5 sling is marked with three hash marks.) It is available from H&K under ID# 205501. Assembly and routing of the multi-purpose carrying slings - The H&K multi-purpose carrying slings are properly assembled as they are received from the factory. If they are not disassembled, they are quickly attached to the weapon. If they have been disassembled, they must be properly assembled before attachment to the weapon.

To properly assemble the multi-purpose carrying sling follow the procedure below.

1. Separate the two lengths of webbing.

2. Lay the bottom length of webbing (that which has the carbine hook(s) attached to it) on a flat surface. Position the bottom length of webbing with:

* the carbine hook that is sewn in a stationary position at the end of the webbing facing to your left and the buckle to your right.

* The spring actuated gate of the carbine hook(s) facing down.

No twists in the webbinq.
