18th century style sling

Need some help trying to find and 18th century style sling for my new Flintlock (.58 cal circa 1750)

I like the leather on the swivels but prefer some type of woven with a pattern or colors. Find the period correct military slings to "white" for my taste. I'm going to Dixon's in 2 weeks so might have some luck there.

I'm using this flintlock purely for hunting but still want the sling to match the rifle

thanks for pointing me in the right direction...J

Re: 18th century style sling

Here is a long shot. You may want to try Dixons. Another angle would be to take a look at the web sites the vendors have who will be there at the yearly Dixons show later this month and see who may offer slings. Or - you could just go to the Dixons show at the end of July and browse.

Yep, I plan on that hoping that someone there will have something. I'd prefer the sling sewn to the swivels too (they're hand made) then just be ready for early ML season!
