Gonna try my hand at making some for my 'longarms'. Seen them at gunshows and liked their 'looks', but not very flexible(like picking up a stick). Tried some test braids I found on the web. Found a wide cobra braid but that turned out too wide. After getting familiar with how to do it,I tried a variation which seems proper width and flexible. They're time intensive but I'm retired after noon(work part time at a Tuffy shop till noon). The left is the wide cobra braid,the right is what seems to be OK. They'll be black for the ARs'. On the left one(not packed tightly,just a test to get familiar with braiding),5" of braid requires 18' of cord. On the right one,8" of braid requires 12' of cord. Have to pick up some detachable sling swivels to make them on as they're not removable once braided. I'll post pics once done. I got plenty of black cord,but need the detachable sling swivels and then ways to attach them to ARs'.
