Description: this is a vintage, authentic, World War One USGI, M1907 leather rifle sling. This sling is approximately 104 years old! This is the real deal. This was a US government issue leather sling for World War 1. Notice ” Chicago belting Company” logo stamped on the sling. I have read that to gauge the authenticity of items like this, the brass keepers(frogs) are very important. You’ll notice close-up photos, and they look like they are connected with brass rivets. I bought this item from the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) who received it from US Army warehouses, probably attached to a rifle. The slings were detached, folded carefully and put in storage. I can show a copy of my receipt upon request. Provenance is: US Government, to the CMP, to me. It was in storage, possibly, for 50 years or more! There are no tears evident. This is for a museum piece rifle, or for a collector to put on their World war one M1903, M1903A3, or M1 Garand World War 2 rifle. BONUS: included free with this sling are some National Rifle and Pistol Match memorabilia from Camp Perry, Ohio. This will be in the form of stickers and/or a commemorative hat pin. But don’t worry, you will not be returning this! Just check my Feedback. Feedback: I leave feedback after it is left for me.
