The straps I just fold the ends over the ring, and glue the piece of tape to itself. I try to be carefull not to glue the sling directly to the ring, so that it can move around more.
The rings I make with a piece of wire sticking off at a 90 degree angle, to work as a mounting post, and glue into a hole I drill in the gun. The smallest drill bit I've got, is out of a Dremel drill bit kit. It's a 1/32" bit. It's bigger around than the wire I use, but it gives plenty of room for super glue in the hole. A lot ot times I'll gently mark the post up with the wire cutters, to give the glue more texture to bite to.
A lot the rings I make are flat rings. I make them by forming the wire around the tip of flat head jeweler's screw driver. On some guns, I make a small round ring, to go between the sling and the ring on the gun. Round rings can be made by forming the wire around a small drill bit.
An easier source of mounting rings, would to get eye pins, and jump rings from the crafts section. I find them to be a little larger than I'd like, but they're less agravating than trying to form a tiny piece of wire into just a specific shape.

That's great, thanks a lot for the tips. I'm going to get some supplies and give this a shot cause like I said, what I have isn't bad, but this is a whole lot better. Very ingenious idea.

i dug this one out of the graveyard, but i just got some supplies and gonna try this out...
something of note i found at Michales...if you look in the necklace/bracelet making section they have lots of useful supplies...little tiny rings, tiny clamps, and very thin flat narrow black leather that could stnad in well for the REXLACE...it's much more flexible and thin, but not as cheap...

Glad I found this thread. I was thinking of making some single-point slings.

Daremo hooked me up with some Flexrex cause it's impossible to find in Canada. I think he got the rolls at "Michaels"? Is that it?
Anyways, here are all his tutorials. He's an awesome customizer.
