Bought this swiss leather sling a while ago for a couple euros......thought it was too nice to leave it in the "cheap junk" box :)

Overall length is 110 cm/43,31 inches, width is 3 cm/1,18 inches.

It's maker marked: A. Pfister - Bern

By the looks of it I think it's for some kind of machinegun but so far I haven't been able to find out for what exactly......so: anybody has seen this one already and knows what it's for?

Maybe an MG51 sling. Swiss copy of a German MG42. I say this because it looks a lot like a German MG42 sling.

Thanks, I was also thinking of a MG51. Have already been googling quite a bit on that but so far no luck on finding a picture where this type of sling is clearly visible.

I think it is for the MG64. I can't find a photo though.

Isn't the MG64 a 12.7mm? (Copy of M2 Browning) I wouldn't want to carry that with a sling.

It is the MG51, the photo I have is mis marked showing the .50BMG as the MG51. Thanks for the correction.
