Product Description
WWII issue MG sling. This one is in very good condition overall- leather is still supple, no dry rot, all stitching intact, markings still legible. There appears to be a WaA on the buckle, I give it 80/ 20 odds that it's a proof mark and not a scratch that resembles a stamp. The maker is code "erg", which is the code for A. Doppert, Treibriemenfabrik, Kitzingen. (In Bavaria, near Würzburg.)
This contractor was one of the most oft encountered makers of MG slings, along with "gyb" and "bla". The mark is easier to read in person than in the photo.

The caveat here is that despite being in very good shape, leather that's nearly 8 decades old is not near as strong as it once was, so we do not warranty originals for use. This is about as good as used MG slings get, and it might hold up, or it might not.
