for Lever Action Rifles
Depending on the nature of your trek – creek fording, fence crossing or just moving through the brush and scrub
– having both hands free can make all the difference. And, while our rifle slings are great, for some people

can be a real “super hero” accessory.
They provide comfortable utility with excellent firearm retention. The backpack type design allows you to simply
“walk out of it” without the need to bring anything over your head. Full sizing adjustment from adult to
RLO Custom Leather produces these expertly handcrafted scabbards. The detail and finish are superb providing a
period appropriate compliment of Western Cowboy Leather to your lever action rifle.
