Triple Cobra Weave 550 Paracord Rifle Sling
This video presented by GearsNTools will lay out how to make your own triple cobra weave 550 paracord rifle sling. The triple cobra weave rifle sling is universal and can be made to fit any size gun.
While paracord was originally invented for parachuting, people quickly discovered many more uses for it. The rot- and mildew-resistant and quick-drying properties of paracord has made it very popular among outdoor enthusiast and survivalists. This article will lay out how to make a triple cobra weave paracord 550 gun sling. This sling is wider and more comfortable than the double cobra weave sling. For a 43” sling you will need board at least forty-seven inches long, two swivel mounts for your gun, two 50’ lengths of paracord, one 100’ length of paracord, scissors, and a lighter.
To start, attach your swivel mounts onto the board 43” apart. Fold one of the 50’ lengths of paracord in half and loop it through one of the swivel mounts, with the center point on the swivel. Put the ends through the other swivel mount through the backside and pull the down towards the starting swivel mount. This will be your working end.
Stand the board up with the working end on top. Start the cobra weave by taking the left cord over the two center cords, and under the right cord. Bring the right cord through the loop created on the left side from behind, pulling the cord all the way through to the other side. Tighten the weave down to the swivel. Repeat the process except for this time start on the right side. Continue the weave down to the other swivel attaching it with the final weave. Leave the ends; they will be used after the second cobra weave is created.
Create another cobra weave with the second piece of 50’ paracord, starting on the opposite side as the first weave. Once you have the second cobra weave complete, take the remaining ends through the swivel from behind and tie them into a double knot on both swivels. Cut the ends as close to the knot as possible and melt the ends into the knot. Do this for both ends of the sling, keeping the knots on the same side.
For the last cobra weave, take your 100’ section of paracord and fold it in half. Pick an end to start on and create a slip knot with the center bend, going through the swivel and over the knot. You should have two single strands of paracord on either side of the two cobra weaves in the center. The two cobra weaves will be treated as the inner strands of the cobra weave.
Create the last cobra weave until you reach the other swivel mount. Cut the remaining ends to about 6”. Bring the ends through the swivel from behind and work under the last 3 cobra stitches. Cut the remaining end and melt ends into the sling. Now all you have left to do is mount the sling to your gun, using the swivel mounts!
