Thanks Garvin. I'll check the rifle out for signs of past swivels but why one would want to cart around a "sporting" rile as heavey as the 80 Falke without a sling is beyond me. Factory fitted sling eyes were an option I took for my MKIII Webley but come to think of it you don't see many if any "factory" swivels on the 80s dad the Airsporter. Perhaps I'm just soft (smile). Ummm. Now you have got me thinking. Would retro fitting a sling to a Mod 80 that did not have one when it left the factory be a sin? Oh the joys of collecting.
