Default Bavarian carbine leather slings

I ordered 3 each of the Bavarian carbine leather slings and they arrived today. Very nice and in good condition. All of them had the buttons. I bought some at the North Store in October and only one in a box full had the buttons. I got 3 of each type:
- buckle at one end and button at the other end. Kind of like a Swedish Mauser sling.
- buttons at boths ends.

Not bad for $5 each. A good alternative to the standard M1 carbine sling.

Glad to hear you got them, and in good condition. I'm waiting for 2 ea. of foreign and commercial, don't really know what the difference is, but like you said, for $5 a piece, nice to have a variety of 'outfits" for the carbine family.
I have a Bavarian, that's also an Austrian. And an Austrian, that's just an Austrian. And of course, they're all USGI!

My two foreign slings came today. One was marked 56 and the other 62 the 56 being thicker leather. Great shape with the buttons. Very pleased.
