As the title says, I need either HK style hooks or the mash style hooks that are 1.48". I bought a brand new AI AE mk iii on Christmas Eve and was given a free sling to accompany it. All i needed to do was buy hooks from somewhere. I get online, looked at blue force gear (where I bought my 2 vickers slings) and locate needed hardware. Problem is, they only sell 1" and 1.25". Anyone know of anywhere that sells bigger hooks? Thanks

You want the 1.25" hooks. The webbing will roll up slightly in the hook slots but that's just fine, it'll keep the sling webbing from sliding through the hook and it presents a smaller profile than 1.5" hooks would too.

We use 1.25" hooks for all of the slings we make and we use 1.5" webbing.
