Improved rifle sling
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
[001] The present invention relates generally to hunting equipment but more
particularly to an improved hunting rifle sling that allows rapid execution
from sling to firing position.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
[002] Beginning as a necessity of life and a means of livelihood, hunting has
evolved over the centuries into a sport and a method of maintaining
balance in many countries. Hunters have for the last few hundred years
relied on the rifle as a weapon of choice. The hunting rifle is traditionally
slung over one shoulder or across the body with a one banded sling or
supported on both shoulders in other versions which offers more
stability. In both cases when a hunter comes upon his or her prey, often
unexpectedly, the process of executing the rifle into a shooting position
is restrictive and takes time. This increases the chance of the prey
spotting or sensing the hunter and moving away. There hence exists a
need for a method or sling that reduces the time taken to deploy the rifle
into a shooting position.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
[003] In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known devices
now present in the prior art, the present invention, which will be
described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide objects and
advantages which are:
[004] To provide for an improved hunting sling that allows the rifle to move
from sling position to aiming position in one swift movement.
[005] It is a another advantage of this invention to support the rifle close
to the
body, freeing the hands, allowing ease of movement for the user.
10[006] It is a further advantage of this invention that it be worn either in
front or
at the back depending on the type of movement and user preference.
[007] In order to do so, the invention has 3 buckles set upon a belt having
two
ends that attach to the hunting rifle. One buckle is an adjustment buckle
that allows the belt to be lengthened or shortened to the user's desired
length.
[008] A second buckle with a hook at one end is affixed on the belt close to
the attachment that fixes to the front of the rifle. The belt passes
through it and the buckle remains fixed at the point it is attached. A third

CA 02843095 2014-02-20
3
buckle angled at approximately 145 degrees has the other end of the
belt looped around its central arm and one of its two openings runs
about the main length of the belt such that it is able to slide from one
end of the point of attachment to the rifle to the other.
5[009] The adjustment buckle has two openings with serrated edges and the
hooked buckle also has two openings with serrated edges for the belt to
fix firmly. The angled sliding buckle has two openings with smooth
edges enabling it to slide across the belt with ease.
[0010] The rifle is slung over the back when the user needs to climb, descend
or generally walk to and from his or her hunting spot. The sliding buckle
is hooked over the hooked stationary buckle such that the belt is tight,
keeping the rifle close to the user's body. Alternatively it can be slung
across the front of the user, ready to deploy into shooting position by
unhooking the sliding buckle from the hooked buckle thereby giving the
belt enough of slack or run to deploy the rifle into shooting position,
without having to physically remove the sling. The present invention can
have the belt and buckles made out of a variety of materials and colors.
[0011] There has thus been outlined, rather broadly, the more important
features of the invention in order that the detailed description thereof
that follows may be better understood, and in order that the present
contribution to the art may be better appreciated. There are additional

CA 02843095 2014-02-20
4
features of the invention that will be described hereinafter and which will
form the subject matter of the claims appended hereto.
[0012] In this respect, before explaining at least one embodiment of the
invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited
in its application to the details of construction and to the arrangements
of the components set forth in the following description or illustrated in
the drawings. The invention is capable of other embodiments and of
being practiced and carried out in various ways. Also, it is to be
understood that the phraseology and terminology employed herein are
for the purpose of description and should not be regarded as limiting.
[0013] As such, those skilled in the art will appreciate that the conception,
upon
which this disclosure is based, may readily be utilized as a basis for the
designing of other structures, methods and systems for carrying out the
several purposes of the present invention. It is important, therefore, that
the claims be regarded as including such equivalent constructions
insofar as they do not depart from the spirit and scope of the present
invention.
[0014] These together with other objects of the invention, along with the
various
features of novelty which characterize the invention, are pointed out with
particularity in the claims annexed to and forming a part of this
disclosure. For a better understanding of the invention, its operating

CA 02843095 2014-02-20
advantages and the specific objects attained by its uses, reference
should be made to the accompanying drawings and descriptive matter
which contains illustrated preferred embodiments of the invention.

10DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
[0017] An improved rifle sling (10) comprising of a belt member (22) having a
first and a second means of attachment (21, 23) to attach to a rifle (20),
and each one of the attachment means (21, 23) having openings
adapted to allow the belt member (22) to slidably pass therethrough for
adjusting and connecting the rifle (20).
[0018] The rifle sling (10) comprises the belt member (22) affixed with a
hooked
buckle (12), an adjustment buckle (14) and a sliding buckle (16). The
hooked buckle (12) has a hook (15) at one end and two serrated
openings (13) through which the belt member (22) passes and it is

CA 02843095 2014-02-20
6
positioned near one end of the belt (22), near the point of attachment
(21) to the rifle (20).
[0019] The adjustment buckle (14) has two serrated openings (17) and is meant
for a user (not shown) to adjust the belt (22) to a desired length. In other
words, it adds some slack length to the belt and can be referred to as
slack length. The sliding buckle (16) is angled such that one half of it is
approximately 35 degrees above the horizontal or other half (see Fig.1c).
The sliding buckle (16) has two smooth openings (18) and one end of the
belt (22) is looped around its central arm (19) while the main length of the
belt (22) runs through one of its two smooth openings (18).
[0020] The rifle sling (10) when worn in front of the body (not shown) holds
the
rifle (20) close to the body (not shown) when one of the outer arms (24)
of the sliding buckle (16) is hooked onto the hooked buckle (12) as in
Fig.2b. The sliding buckle (16) is removed from the hook (15) when the
rifle (20) is to be deployed in a shooting position allowing instant slack in
the belt (22) as seen in Fig.2a, allowing the rifle (20) to be raised while
maintaining the belt (22) around the user (not shown).
[0021] As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the
present invention, the same should be apparent from the above
description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of
usage and operation will be provided.

CA 02843095 2014-02-20

[0022] With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that
the
optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to
include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of
operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious
to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those
illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are
intended to be encompassed by the present invention.
[0023] Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the
principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and
changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to
limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and
described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents
may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
