Default Kerr No-Buckle slings???

Can someone tell me the attraction of these slings and why they sell for so much?

And what is the current price range on these things?
Thanks in advance.

Supply and demand... not as many made. Cost depends on condition...NOS probably around $100.

They are frequently counterfeit as well so pay close attention to details.

I purchased a extremely nice repro from What Price Glory. If you didn't know the differences, you would know it was repro.

And how can I tell if they are authentic?
I recently bought 2 M1917 rifles from an estate sale. The former owner has passed away, so I have no way to ask him anymore...


I'm looking to sell both slings, but I don't want to advertise as authentic and have them turn out to be reproductions.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Rivets and weave of the webbing. Repros tend to have rivets that are split and the weave is coarser.
