NOS web slings
 
Does anyone know where you can get the early GI web slings. The new reproductions aren't as heavy ,both in the webbing matierial and metal. Thanks , Eddie

E-store has great slings. They may not be original, but they are excellent.

Eddie, the best NOS GI web slings I ever found were from Collectors Source, I bought 4 from Jeff about 6 years ago. All are marked MRT May 1952. The fabric is the very thick, tight weaved canvas, and they are very solid for position shooting with a .30. I took 1 to use as a shooter so I don't always have to use a leather sling, and I shoot just as well with that web sling. They were not cheap at the time, iircc, $35 + shipping, but they are worth every penny when compared to the thin/anemic $10 Chinese repro web sling that everyone has today. You could pm Jeff on the forum and see if there's a chance he has 1 left today. I just bought a mint NOS 1945 marked WWII web sling from him for my 3 45 SA. If you need his forum name send me a pm.

I have 3 that I purchased from the CMP quite some time ago .Naturally they are used but in excellent condition with no marking of any kind . I'd take $40 shipped to the lower 48 for the 3 slings. Al in Fishkill

Thanks to all who responded to my PM. I purchased a 1944 dated sling from a gentleman in AL . Eddie
