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 years they've become a kind of specialized item. I got together for a student film group about two dozen "rifles" with slings, itself a long and amusing story.

They wanted items that looked "heavily used" and four remaining were not "tired" or "beat up" enough.

They're marked RIA 1941 with the typical blackened steel fittings of WW2. Rock Island was the first to change over. Most civilian vendors didn't make the transition from brass until well into 1942, a few not until 1943. Slings were issued at the unit level, and were most often OLDER than the rifles upon which they were mounted.

These are fully usable, full strength, and to regulation, not the rivet-festooned, too short, too light commercial jobs that others peddle at higher prices.

Standard G.I. 1 1/4", of course.

These are $22.00 each, shipped.


I have four.

"Fatigued" or "aged" WW2 leather M1907. These were prepared for a theatrical film project, to look "worn in". Some surface finish modification, oil spots, intentional smudging. They STILL will benefit from the use of neatsfoot oil or other condition, in those situations where they are to actually be USED. For display, the oil will darken them, but is not strictly required. These will have to be wiped off before use.

note: These are all the same color, albeit photographing in different conditions, with different color backgrounds, may make them appear darker or lighter in a particular shot. Also, the oiled specimens tend to darken down, slightly.

Best to contact me via e-mail, but I do check PM's on here.

I can accept PayPal. Can also accept checks or money orders.

I'll ship at these prices, but if you're outside the lower 48, well, it's better to upgrade shipping. First class can take 30 days to Alaska or Hawaii.

These are sold out, pending funds. Didn't last two hours!!

I have lots of other M1907's. Will mark this sold as soon as payments are secured.

Have offered special items to those who missed out, as a one time deal.

Thanks.
