Description

SLING – GEW98: THIS WAS AN EXPORT SLING BUT KEPT IN GERMANY WHEN THE WAR STARTED AS THEY DID WITH MANY EXPORT ITEMS. IT IS THE EXACT STYLE & LENGTH AND MOUNTS A BRASS FRAME BUCKLE (SEE PAGE 242 IF STORZ BOOK ON MAUSERS). THE ONLY MINOR DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE BUCKLE IS NOT THE FLAT “DISHED” TYPE AS ON THE GERMAN VERSION. VG=EXC, LEATHER NEEDS TREATED SINCE IT IS STIFF (WHICH I WAS GOING TO DO BUT DECIDED TO LET THE BUYER USE WHAT THEY WANT TO ON IT – WE ALL HAVE OUR PREFERENCES OF WHICH MINE IS PECARDS) AND IT SHOULD CLEAN UP NICELY. THIS CAME IN THE MUSEUM LOT WE BOUGHT RECENTLY.
