Ching Sling - History


In the early 1980s the "Speed Slings" specified by Jeff Cooper on his scout rifle were derived from the Bisley Two-Point System which was dubbed "CW Sling" after his friend Carlos Widmann of Guatemala. In 1986 when Eric Ching attended the Gunsite school he felt that he could improve the idea of the "Speed Sling" and he came up with a new design which was far more improved than the "CW Sling". The sling was found to be superior and quickly adopted and named "Ching Sling" by the Jeff Cooper and the name stuck. The production was handled by custom leather maker Bruce Nelson then to Galco International and Beast Enterprises. The Ching Sling had a second version called Ching Sling II which was longer, more universal, and wider in places for more comfort. The last version was the "Safari Ching Sling" which was much more improved with wider straps, split main strap, and the U strap which makes carrying from the shoulder position much more comfortable and secure. Eric Ching died on July 28, 2007 and left behind an important contribution to shooting sports and tactical fields.
