Cheap and simple sling for 10/22 takedown

I didn't want to make any permanent alterations to my rifle, such as drilling, so came up with a simple solution. I bought two Blackhawk single-point sling adapters for $6.99 each, strapped one on the buttstock and the other near the barrel band and then used the carry strap that comes on the Takedown's backpack. Seems to work fine. It's easy and quick to remove when I break the rifle down.

Nice, I started playing with reusing my takedown bag strap too. I ended up making a paracord sling for mine and leave it tied on and connected between the two storage slots inside the bag. I working on one for my Henry .22 Magnum now that will be all tied on in place.

Excellent! Looks good. I'm gonna get a couple of those adapters and do the same with mine. Sure beats drilling. Thanks for posting!

Greetings!

I'm new here and a proud new owner of the TD. I was also looking to add a sling to mine so I got a single point sling adapter as well as the new LaserMax Barrel Band Laser. It's not the cheapest combo, but the utility and just fun of it is a plus IMO. The BBL mounts tightly and comes with 2 rails on each side of it and replaces the original barrel band. I picked up a rail sling mount and stuck it on then ran the carrying cases sling from that mount to the rear single point sling adapter.

I was actually surprised I found the laser in my local gun shop. He only had one and I jumped at it. got it for $90 instead of the usual $100-120 price tag. IMO was a great investment. Since the rifle only shoots "flat" to about 120 yards and this laser reaches out a good 100 yards, I thought it'd be a great addition. Takes up little to no more space than the original band. I can stick a compact flashlight on the sucker and take out the coons that have been digging through the trash I'll take a few photos once I can get around to it. Work Work!

This is a nice solution

I tried this with my 10/22 TD and just as advertised, it's a PDG answer to putting a sling on the gun without drilling. The only caveat is that you *do* have to work a little to make sure those Blackhawk! adapters are snug but not supertight - in the front, snug up against the barrel band and also in the back, and then either cut off the ends or make sure you can tuck them in well.

After that, it's really good. The backpack straps swivel 360 degrees so the sling is almost impossible to tangle. It's not "combat duty" tough, perhaps, but it's very nice for this gun and you can just keep the strap and the adapters on the rifle when you disassemble by disconnecting at the front and packing the rest of the strap into the bag along with the buttstock. Sano.

And the "shoulder pad" for the backstrap works very nicely against the back of your wrist in offhand or prone. Everything adjusts easily, it's strong enough, and what's not to like?

This worked so well in fact that I am calling Ruger tomorrow to try and order a second (and third) strap for my backpack.

Sorry it's taken so long for the reply - I first saw this post about 6 months ago - but to anyone who has a 10/22 TD and isn't interested in drilling the stock right now, this works well.
