Black Collar Arms Desperado
Leander, TX (01/16/2023) – The Black Collar Arms Desperado system allows the use of a guitar strap as a rifle sling, complete with locking QD attachment. Not only are guitar straps incredibly cool looking and available in thousands of styles and dozens of materials, but they make for some of the most comfortable, best rifle slings going!
No surprise there, as guitar straps and strap locks are designed to hold heavy, expensive guitars comfortably and securely for hours on end. Some even offer fast, single-handed length adjustment like some of the best tactical rifle slings!
Desperado is available in five versions for mounting a guitar strap quick release locking lug to any firearm model via its:
QD sling cup
M1913 Picatinny rail
Sling swivel stud
Universal design with a 0.250-inch hole for the use of 550 Paracord (included) or other solution.
Desperado is compatible with standard guitar strap locks (e.g. Schaller, Fender, the ones available on the Desperado product page, etc.) and nearly any guitar strap you so choose. Simply pull up on the guitar strap lock’s spring-loaded pin to attach or detach the lock from the Desperado lug (Schaller locks click right onto Desperado and lock in place without even having to touch the pin). Letting go of the pin locks the strap in place automatically.
At launch, Black Collar Arms is carrying strap locks and four different guitar straps for your one-stop-shopping convenience.
From tactical flowers…
To skulls and roses…
To red jacquard weave…
To waxed canvas, hand-tooled leather, padded leather, neoprene, corduroy, and every color, pattern, texture, and width you can imagine, there’s a guitar sling out there screaming your name.
If you aren’t into one of the four we’re carrying at this time, there are literally thousands on Amazon that are fantastic and inexpensive, and your local Guitar Center or similar store will have dozens if not hundreds in stock. Some, like the D’Addario Auto Lock, quickly snap on, lock to, and quick detach from Desperado without requiring separate strap locks.
“We knew Desperado was a cool idea, given the near-infinite number of truly badass guitar straps out there, but we didn’t realize it was also a good idea until lugging guns slung with guitar straps all around a Texas ranch hunting for hogs. It turns out most guitar straps make for some of the absolute best, most comfortable rifle slings ever made. I’ll never go back.”
– we totally made up that quote, but the story is true
