Product Description
 

Hand sewn Correct stamp Darkens easily
New, high quality ATF leather sling for WWII MP38 and MP40 SMG's. These are not sold by any other vendors- they are not the painted, stinky, piss-tanned treasures available from dozens of other companies. Our leather is properly dyed, takes oil well, and darkens quickly and easily. Our slings are the correct width (24mm), length (120cm), hand sewn, correct steel hardware, with cross-hatched embossing.

Note: We punch the teardrop shaped holes from back to front (of the leather)- this isn't as pretty as the going the other direction, but it makes it much easier to fasten the stud. It's also the way the Germans did it in WWII. A few discriminating types have fussed but...call A. Speer to lodge a formal complaint.

Imported

Markings: We stamp these with "adf 1943" and a Waffenamt. However, just like on originals, the markings can be difficult to see- and once the sling is used very much, they will largely become even more faint. It's simply a characteristic of the leather- not a mistake. One of the hardest things to find in collecting is an original WWII K98, MP40 or MG sling with nice, legible markings. Normally one is lucky to even be able to see where the stamps once were, much less be able to read them.

Returns for "better markings" will simply be a refund.

Care: Just use mink or neetsfoot oil. Apply it with a rag, work it into the leather and then wipe off the excess occasionally. Do not fill a can with oil and soak leather anything for hours- most people seem to know this, but there are those special few...

German Sling Color
Most complaints we receive are this: It's not chocolate brown like the original!
Originals started out light brown. Dirt, oil, sweat, and sometimes polish or dye darkened them notably.
70+ years on, many are nearly black.

Original slings- the transition is easy to see.
