Here are links to some of my flickr.com photos of the stuff I have unwrapped, closeups:

You may have to C&P some of these. I am not finding very many of the "unmarked" ones. Just realized, for the guy who has a later rifle, the "unmarked" are a real solid choice...

There are a total of SIX photos of these new styles in the collection.

Jim. Thanks for the update. I hope I am not the only one confused.

Email on the way for:

3 - CS 1917
3 - MILSCO 1944

I can not view your pictures without signing in, which I can not.

You might get better results if you list ten or twenty of these in a new thread.

Start a new one, then everyone will see what gets sold. Then start a new thread for more.

So, put me down for six. All the past orders have been great. Anyone not getting them from you will be missing a great opportunity.

Received my last bunch of slings. These are great.

Thanks Jim for the fast shipping and the nice smell.

These slings are crying for some new guns.

Get them while you can.

I ran across an authentic, original MILSCO 1943 sling today. For those who would like to compare theirs with a pretty solid original (bear in mind, the black fitted ones from me are marked "MILSCO 1944") I put some five photos on my flickr.com collection. Again: You'll have to sign in to view and browse.

Here are some links to start:

You can sign in or join with ANY Yahoo i.d. No, there's no "spam" or money or other conspiracy theory drivel involved. You can then view different sizes and so on.

Well, if you keep posting, I guess I need 4 of these:

"I am AWASH in RIA 1941 replica slings with brass hooks. I will until 1 July sell those at 2 for $50, delivered"

Check in the mail in the morning. $100, put my name on these 4.

Thanks.

I went ahead and put them on Gunbroker. Dropped a BUNCH of money on this stuff, and it was one of those "take all the stuff or forget it" deals. Well, you know what I did.... And it's not like I really need any more leather slings!!! The photos are interesting. If I read the signs properly, these three and the one purchased back about ten days are all from the exact same period. Same script, same phosphated hooks. photos are interesting, and I put a few in my flickr.com collection, too.

Also, I am AWASH in RIA 1941 replica slings with brass hooks. I will until 1 July sell those at 2 for $50, delivered--call it a "sale" if you like. I have more than any kind of normal lifetime supply!

Interestingly, the MILSCO 1943 I have and the last one I had, too, are "double marked" near both hooks. Generally, though, the repros are pretty good copies. Two of these are quite reddish in color, but I finally figured out: that's not dye or oil, it's handling and probably sweat that provides that hue--or so I think, anyway.

None of these are the very dark, nearly black color I found in so many of the Ektachrome transparencies of WW2 stuff I have viewed over the years. That hue and tone seems to have come from the Neatsfoot treatment so often applied in the field.
