Product Description
 
Exact reproduction of the slings issued with the later "Type 1" FG42 (Fallschirmjägergewehr) rifle. Essentially a modified rifle sling fitted with the snap hook from the MG34/42 straps. Our slings are not the luscious painted water buffalo gems offered elsewhere- these are made with exact reproduction German sling hardware and American leather, embossed with the proper cross hatch pattern.

I was able to copy an original FG sling- a friend of mine who owns several of these rifles was kind enough to bring several slings to a show for me to examine, measure and photograph.

These differ from the Type 2 slings by being 10" shorter due to the different attachment points on the two types of rifle. The Type 1 slings are 24mm wide x 96cm long.

These are marked "jsd 1942" with the correct WA. ("jsd" = Gustav Rehinhardt, Lederwarenfabrick, Berlin). None of the original slings I have handled had legible maker marks so I chose jsd as they were a very prominent manufacturer of slings (and all manner of leather gear).



Made in USA (Hand stitching done overseas)
