The US Navy made their own version of the Army olive drab field jacket (M1941) for use when the pile lined N1's were too heavy. These were worn both on and off ship, as well as by some Corpsman serving with the Marines. (Some sailors wore Army M41's.) Although externally similar to the field jacket, the N4 was simpler, with no epaulets or bi-swing back. The shell is olive drab no. 7 poplin, with a flannel lining. A number 3 Talon brass zipper is used as the closure.
All of our N4's are marked with "USN" in black ink on the breast, like originals.

New, USA made WWII M-1 Carbine slings in olive drab no. 3 ("khaki"), without oiler. These are the most realistic recreations of the WWII issue sling available. How close do they look to the originals? Just check the comparison photos. They say it all.
No oiler: We now offer these without the oilers because we realize many people already have a pile of the little things. However, one is necessary to attach the sling to the carbine. If your carbine already has a sling on it, then you already have an oiler.
The 100% cotton webbing was made on a period shuttle loom and yarn dyed to match original material.
The Lift-the-dot snaps are genuine Scovil brand parts, and our tips and slides were also patterned directly from WWII parts, and parkerized in the correct dull gray phosphate color.
Assembled in our factory in Columbia Ky. Length tip to tip 48''.
Color note: Our webbing is the same color as original WWII material: US Government olive drab shade number 3. This is a light olive tan- not beige. Collectors refer to it as "khaki" simply to differentiate it from the darker green olive drab no. 7 used at the end of WWII. Many inexperienced enthusiasts get confused over this point.
Fit: Our webbing is 1" wide and the tips are die set so they cannot spread or flare. These are exactly the same size as originals. However, many aftermarket and reproduction stocks and sling swivels are sloppily made and can be tough to fit the sling through.
