Our only discovery at an otherwise promising estate sale yesterday was this sling, found of all places in a 3. The sling appears to have not been issued as there is really no wear and no evidence of the claws being in the adjustment holes except one pair on one section. The markings BOYT -42- are excellent. The sling has never been oiled. Very heavy, strong leather. Just a slight amount of verdigras on the brass rivets holding the steel hooks. Always fun to find one of these that saw virtually no use over the past 78 years. The item “Unissued M1907 Leather Rifle Sling, BOYT -42″ is in sale since Sunday, November 29, 2020. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Militaria\WW II (1939-45)\Original Period Items\United States\Field Gear, Equipment”. The seller is “relicfinds2″ and is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This item can be shipped worldwide.
