    I believe the GMW-B5000 metal square series resin straps are actually longer. Unfortunately, it has that tab thing to fit the special lug design and uses screw bars. It may not fit the other 5600 models using spring bars.

    Or you can NATO it with adapters.

    Best option might be to pick up the composite bracelet for it.

    Youíve been thinking about it anyway so what better excuse?

    I know itís a UK stockist but you get the idea. Thatís an all black one too.

    Iíve just measured my GMW-B5000 strap against my GW-5000 and itís the same length. Not sure If the GW-5000 straps are the same length as the 5600 straps however?

    I'm not sure but if I was to have a guess I'd say they will be. Thanks mate...

    I think you might need 19mm rather than 20mm spring bars if you swap to the composite too. Not 100% but thereís some chat in the forum about it.

    I love the composite on my GW-B5600. Iíd have swapped out the strap on my GW-500O for one too if it wasnít for the softer resin strap it has.
