Best Rifle Sling

Quake Claw Rifle Sling Review

Seth Anderson

As an experienced shooter with 21 years hunting, 5 years in the Marine Corps, and occasional recreational shooting, I used many types of rifle slings. I want to give some insight into the Quake Claw sling for hunters and shooters looking to buy a rifle or shotgun sling.

Quake Claw Rifle Sling Review

The Quake CLAW Sling System is widely known for having the best non-slip pad incorporated into a sling. The extremely durable and odor resistant pad is molded into the sling webbing to allow the sling to conform to your shoulder and hold tight.

  • Quake Claw will not hold water like foam, urethane or leather
  • Non-slip pad keeps firearm in comfortable position
  • Pad will remain flexible in extreme conditions

Why try the Quake Claw?

This past Fall, I found myself distracted in an outdoor store strolling through every aisle just browsing at things I “might” need. This happens to me frequently, unfortunately for my wallet and wife. I came across some slings in the gun accessory section and thought to myself how nice it would be to find a sling that doesn’t slide off my shoulder during long hikes into the hilly hardwoods of Tennessee. Immediately, I was drawn to The Claw because of the rubber-like material it seemed to be made of. Slings I have used in the past have been either strictly nylon or included excessive padding that I found constantly having to readjust tightly back onto my shoulder. This is not the case with The Claw. Due to the material and grip indentations on the sling, it stays in place extremely well. Where normally I would have to readjust my sling 4-5 times on the way to my stand, I now only have to maybe once or not at all.

Benefits of the Quake Claw

The Quake Claw Sling System is a somewhat simple looking rifle sling but it provides a lot of benefits for the hunter trekking into the backwoods. The sling is made by Quake Industries, who specializes in gun slings. The Claw retails at a very reasonable $19.99. The best part about buying a sling is it’s usually a one time expense.  For about twenty bucks, you are going to get your money’s worth out of this one. The Quake Claw is odorless and comes with quiet swivels, eliminating issues found in many other rifle slings. It’s available in 15 different color options, including many popular camo patterns. The only drawback is the lack of ammo storage. Many slings offer a few slots for either rifle cartridges or shotgun shells. This is not a big enough issue to me however, as I store my ammo in my vest or the gun itself.
