Greetings: was wondering if any o' y'all have any suggestions regarding "aging" gun leather, specifically, rifle slings. I've had a hard time finding a source for old slings, separate from the gun, and I'd like to put an old sling (or old-looking) on those classic rifles....thanks in advance

drew :D

Drew, I moved this to the Cowboy Action Shooting forum. It might get better exposure there and you might get more replies.

Might try just holding it up in front of a mirror. I know every time I look in one, my face looks leathery and has aged considerably.

Sorry, but couldn't resist. Did a search on Google, and couldn't find anything useful for you either.

I'm not sure this is the same thing, but you can soften it, which I think is what happens when it ages. Go to a tack shop and get some neatsfoot oil or some leather conditioner. I oiled a brand new saddle last summer and was asked where I got such a nice USED saddle!!! It gave it a nice rich patina, and that was using neatsfoot oil.
