Default Sling value?

I'm headed to a local gun show and wanted input on a fair price for my sling (I didn't see any comparable on GB'r). it's a 1945 original (I think). I'm actually still working on removing it (stuck oiler) without damaging the sling, oiler, or stock. sorry for the rifle pics, I couldn't get them separated from sling pics. thx for your time & input

You could sell it here easily for $100. At a gun show the dealers will low ball you and you might not run into a buyer that would give you that or more. Good luck!!

Dated carbine slings in very good condition like yours are pretty rare today, don't see em for sale often.
I agree at least $100 + ( maybe to $150 for someone really wanting a nice one)

Itís a real WWII carbine sling in very good condition. I agree with the others that your best bet is to sell it on the forums.

no sir, the Big Town GS is at the end of July. I did not know you were allowed to buy/sell in the forums. I really just joined forums when I applied for the 1911 program. but it might be a mute point...I still have not been able to remove the sling

Post it here for sale with pics and a price. It will sell easily. Make sure your full name is in your profile.

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

You have to leave the oiler in the slot, and remove the sling by sliding end of sling past the oiler.
