WW2 World War I Garand M1907 Springfield rifle leather sling Turkey Korea Japan
November 24, 2019
M1 Garand/M1907 Springfield leather sling from World War 1 and 2 and post war. The sling is 36 1/2 long. The second piece of the sling is approximately 22 long. The sling is stamped 1515. There looks to be the remnants of a gold embossed stamp next to the number. Sling shows normal wear/tear due to age with some cracking and other age related defects. Sling metal parts have two rivets. Sling is in two separate parts. I would consider for use in display but as I’m no expert I’ll leave that up to the new owner if they want to use the sling in support of a rifle. This vintage sling has been examined and the consensus by some is that it is pre to WW2 use. Others believe it may have been made by a foreign country for use on M-1’s provided to the US. This could include Japan, Korea, Turkey, Argentina, Denmark, Thailand, Norway, Brazil to name but a few of the many countries that received M-1’s. Normal wear and tear associated with age.
