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 lightweights sold commercially. They are reproductions, but carefully produced and to specification.

$30.00 a pop.

Have other M1907's, too, but these are ONLY being made available on this forum. They are, however, for sale to locals, too.


PM's work eventually, but it's easier to e-mail me. I have a very full schedule this week, so will check as/when I can.

Best way to view the photos is to sign in to flickr.com with any Yahoo i.d. One can then search and magnify and so on, as well as read all the caption material and do searches.

THE ORDINARY 'FATIGUED" UNITS ARE GONE, AND I DECIDED TO PULL THE SPLIT ONE AND WORK IT UP FOR A SPECIAL DISPLAY.

TWO FIRST QUALITY UNITS REMAIN.



AS OF 10/28/2018, I STILL HAVE TWO RIA 1941 BLACK-HOOKED M1907 SLINGS REMAINING FOR PURCHASE.




Have some "fatigued" versions of same. They'd be better for rifles that are not going to be used with the "sling wrap", and I will price them attractively and have photos very soon.

One shows a few almost invisible scuffs. The other has some major cracking. See the photo links below.

I'll take one of the 1941 RIA leather slings per our messages.
Cheers!

more stuff

Will put some links in with shots of the "distressed" ones by late today or so. I have partially repaired it, and it will probably wind up on a display rifle.

Still a couple of the top quality units remain.

The fatigued unit with the splits has been repaired pending use for a particular project. The other one
has been sold. I do have two standard, first quality RIA 1941 remaining as of 10/13/2018 A.M. Thanks.

One of the "cool" things about the brown-dyed MILSCO 1942 is, it is dark (as most of them were in line units) and it needn't be oiled or conditioned, and won't stain your shirt. There WERE color dyed originals, but not that dark. Still, the "look" is about right.


For those wanting their replica sling to seem "appropriate", it's prudent to recall, slings were usually older than the rifles on which they were mounted. Sometimes, they were MUCH older.

We were still buying UNUSED World War I dated leather M1907 slings at Camp McCoy surplus in the sixties.

The premium JT&L 1942 and Rock Island Arsenal 1918 are $34.00 a pop.

I do have the "regular" Rock Island 1918, also at $30.00.

They ALL darken down with neatsfoot or conditioner.

And the use of the leather Model of 1907 sling in WW2?

Well, here's a Medal of Honor awardee's synopsis:

partially sold

The "fatigued" RIA 1941, the rather standard one, is sold.

TWO standard, first quality, spiffy units remain.

See notes above on the fatigued units.

Still retain the "first quality" RIA 1941 available, and yes, can ship with other types, too. Price is unchanged. Two remain as of 10/13.

These don't accept conditioner as readily as my last batch, but they sure look good. The "roughout" side, however, does, and if one conditions the back, it will greatly prolong the life of the strap. Of course, if one wishes to make it look used, it will require different techniques.

Thanks.

Picked up two new variations, only a couple of each.

UNMARKED, but fully to regulation, dyed about as dark as they would be if purely and thoroughly saturated with oil. An excellent choice for civilian or military rifles, or for that matter, shotguns.

Same price as the other standard items. $30.00 each. One at a time. If you don't choose a hook color/material/style, I'll send the next one under the hand.

Only two of each on hand as of now.
