  1. SPF
    ALL SPF>>>>>>I've got 10 for sale as of now. There may be a few more laying around for later too. They're all in untouched condition, still in the factory packaging. Most are dated either Oct, '65 or Dec '72. $50.00ea +shipping (individual slings will ship in a small flat rate box, roughly $7...

    Inventory reduction was pretty successful and the sale is over for now. It's been about four months, so I guess this might be called "spring cleaning". That would be as opposed to "winter bail out"... Going to dispose of some extra slings that are becoming an inventory/space problem at the...

    THIS IS AN OLD THREAD, BUT IF YOU LOOK TOWARD THE LAST POSTING, THERE'S A LOT OF UPDATED, CURRENT INFORMATION. These and the originals have been a hobby and avocation since retirement, and of course, these are historic and very functional, too. My "mutt" Breda M1 just went out the door...

    These are way sturdier than 70-year-old specimens, and one can choose some rather unusual combinations for aesthetic purposes from these variants. HOYT are sold out, have Kerr 1918 and Singer 1942. Check my photos on flickr.com. Premium units, too. These are full weight, and very strong...

    Pending funds arrival, these seem to be sold. FUNDS HAVE ARRIVED. I retain MILSCO 1942 with black hooks, including the brown-dyed. And I have the Rock Island 1941, also with blackened steel furniture. And some others. But the brass MILSCO 1942 appear to be sold out. There may be more of...

    These are similar to the "fatigued" ones I had earlier. But these are not "fatigued". Full length G.I., stitched keepers, regulation rivets, in this case blackened steel fittings. Long strap is 49-51", short is about 26", counting loop material. These are NOT the skimpy, pop-riveted...

    These are sold out, pending funds. I have lots of M1907's, including a brass-hooked, unmarked one at this same price, if interested, but these fatigued jobs are all spoken for, pending funds, and this will be marked sold, probably by FRIDAY. I have LOTS of M1907's, and in fact over the...

    The tie-style Martini/Enfield/Lee Enfield slings are $18.50. Edit: Those are now gone, completely out. Have a wide variety of M1907 units, but the undyed (brass hooks) or "WWI" style unmarked, are a new item I just stumbled across, and the red/brown unmarked I have, also new...
  9. Want To Buy
    Hey everyone, I am looking for a good leather sling to finish my rifle as I just got a TRW stock off of a gentleman here. 55 is the most I can do, I would prefer a used turner or similar sling, but I am still getting my bearings going on M1A and its accessories so I am not sure if that is out of...
  10. Accuracy
    First off, i have been reading a lot about reinforcing my flimsy SA synthetic stock (loaded model), or purchasing a new stock in the future. While looking over my rifle i have found something interesting and am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how it may effect my accuracy/poi shift...
  11. Modern M14
    Hi All, I just fitted my M1A Scout Squad with an Archangel stock. Old 2 point tactical sling no longer fits due to the increased circumference of the Archangel stock. Any input would be greatly appreciated on what sling(s) would be best for this combo. Thanks!

    Greetings fellow enthusiasts, I took my new SA M1A Standard to the range for the 1st time yesterday and had a great time. After establishing my 200yd zero, I was experimenting with different shooting positions using a GI style sling from Brownells. Each time I would put any tension on the sling...
  13. The M14
    Hello and yes i am fairly new to posting on these forums, however i have been reading them for several months now. I have a SA loaded and am looking into options for putting a sling on it. This sling will be used mostly for extended hikes, and as a SHTF sling so i want it to be comfortable and...

  15. The M14
    Sorry upfront if this is in the wrong part of the forum, but does anyone know where I can find a GI sling for a M1A or Garand? I have seen beautiful leather, cheepo chinese made nylon and super tacticool stuff, but I want an old school style functional GI sling. New or older surplus in like new.
  16. Ammunition
    Did not know where else to put this so I doing it here in Ammo. Anyone buy or use "W" marked M14 mags? I believe that they are Westinghouse made and GI. They look good and the two that I have tried funtioned well. Saw them for sale for under $20 at a few online stores and I am thinking of...

    I've looked everywhere in Austin for a good sling for my M1A in black synthetic stock. I tried academy, mcbrides, red's, and even cabelas with no luck. I'm looking for something in black or green (I think these colors look good with the black stock). As always, I appreciate everyone's advice, J
