Up for sale, a Japanese Arisaka Type 44 Rifle Sling. From what I understand this sling was/could also be used on a Type 99. The buckle is steel and the button is brass. It has 10 holes for adjustment for the buckle. This hole appears to have been made after the fact by hand. See the ragged edges on the inside of the hole. The leather is in good condition. It is strong and supple with no tears. The surface show age appropriate wear. Dimensions of the sling are as follows. Give or take a 10th of an inch: Sling overall length: 41 1/2″ Sling width: 1 7/16″ Buckle inside dimensions: 1 1/2″ x 1″ Buckle outside dimensions: 2″ x 1 1/2″ Leather loops outside dimensions: 1 3/4″ x 3/4″ The characteristics of this sling and the research line up with a real genuine Arisaka sling, not a reproduction.
