FSA produces the finest gunslips available anywhere in the world. They are all made in house by a specialist worker who has used the materials and patterns for 40 years.
Our gunslips and cartridge bags will last two generations and as such are the cheapest available. These slips are beautifully made from the best quality nylon, YKK zips, rot proof thread and have the best pleated hides, which combined with a real Australian sheepskin lining is English craftsmanship at its best.
When choosing an FSA slip for the first time many people spend a lot of time looking at the outside, the quality, colour and general make up of the slip but we always draw attention to the inside, which i think is the most important feature as this provides protection for the gun inside. The gun may be valuable in terms of pounds sterling or valuable in history, affinity or potential, but the gun and the protection offered by neat clipped sheepskin cannot be overstated. Many slips are sold as sheepskin lined – looks nice – yes acrylic sheepskin – looks nice but the pile is short and goes flat quickly. We re-zip slips and most are lined with white acrylic sheepskin which by the time the zip goes has gone flat and has the feel of rough carpet. This is a very poor substitute for our our best quality neat sheepskin dyed dark brown (it will last two lifetimes and a white skin will be filthy after a few season of heavy use) and clipped to 3/4″. As a check, if a slip has a genuine sheepskin lining then it will have a join visible somewhere on the inside, if no join is visible then acrylic sheepskin has been used to save money. There isn’t a sheep alive that has fleece long enough to line a 30″ gunslip in one piece.
