    Were the WW2 Web Slings for the Garand ever dated or even the Leather M1907s? like 1919, 1943 or 44?

      Nice. They must be pretty delicate. How do you keep it from not breaking apart?

    Back in 2019 I bought the Turner Saddlery M1907 (Brown Oiled with Steel frog hooks). Its an Awesome sling.

        "At The Front" Specializing in Militaria Reproductions sells M1907 leather slings also Web Slings.

        The Turner Saddlery leather sling was top notch so I went with that.

        I'm now looking for a Web sling not sure what to get a Repro or ones on Ebay.

          The M1 Slings were dated. 43-45.

          I have a 1943 Tan Sling on my September 3rd 1943 WRA.
          A 1943 Pea Green Sling on my September 1943 SA.
          A 1944 OD Sling on my January 1944 SA.
          A 1945 OD Sling on my February 1945 SA

          I also have 2x oroginal M1923 Slings, one dated 1942 on my May 1942 SA, and one on a stock lined up for a 1940 build. It's an earlier model of 1923 with Squared tabs, I'm thinking manufactured in the 20s or 30s.

          Plus the original leather Slings I have too.

          I love an accessory me!

          Would the correct sling for a Korean War Garand or post war gun be the OD or Pea green web sling?

                I'd go for a 1944 or 45 marked one mate. Maybe even 1951.

                  Up for grabs is a SM CO stamped sling with the flat buckle stamped 1944.No rips or tears.

                    The sling would depend on what the issuing party had in their stores at the time of issue.

                      Do you have any ones dated 1942?

                      Many thanks!

                          Do all original leather slings have round holes or were there oval ones made as well?
