Very rare contractor marked: LERCH BROS. Original WWI US Army M1907 Brass & Leather Sling for the Model 1903 Springfield, Model 1917 Enfield, and of course early WWII for the M1 Garand Rifle. This sling is a lovely dark russet color and the well oiled leather remains strong and pliable. The bends around the sling swivels are more delicate than the rest, so this particular sling may be better suited for display, rather than frequent range use. The brass fittings have developed a nice, honest patina. Both keepers are the correct style sewn keepers. The leather shows the expected minor surface crazing and surface cracking and has been treated with Pecard’s leather preservative. Very nice (and RARE maker) original sling ready to be displayed on your classic battle rifle!
