Correct WW2 Sling

Post by Phantom 778 »

I have noticed the commonly available 91/30 Mosin Nagant Sling is green with brown dog collars. Are these post WW2? I have seen some things that suggest WW2 issue slings may have been light brown or tan. Any ideas?

Lots of reproductions read this: http://www.mosinnagant.net/USSR/Russian ... slings.asp

I like a well used, filty, coarse canvas in light tan or brownish color with some makers marks, or the black naval slings in leather or canvas.

Also see http://www.rollanet.org/~stacyw/russian ... _sling.htm

I also prefer original [SA] T stamped war time slings for my Finn Mosins and the one Russian 5 line 91-30 I have. I don't feel I have a complete rifle unless it has a proper sling and cleaning rod.
