US GI Korean War Web Slings, near mint!

 

 

      KW slings which are near unissued. Some have a date, which can sometimes be made out: February 1952

      If the date is important to you, check the "add $10" and I'll try to find you a legible one (if I can't, I'll refund the ten bucks).

     Yessir, it's not common knowledge that in the emergency of ramping up to fight the Big One, Uncle Sam caused web slings to be manufactured for all those 1903s, A3s, and Garands he was piling up!

     And when the Korean War came about, once again Uncle supplied web slings to GIs for their Garands.

     KW slings have the same small buckle with sharp corners which WW2 slings had, but the keepers were the late ones you see on most postwar GI web slings - ie, they are heavier metal and have a reinforcing rib across them.

     In addition, there are two variations to the web material: One is a green and fairly soft; the other is like a USMC belt material, and tends toward brown/tan. Either is totally unlike the later "postwar" sling most of us are familiar with.

     If you want an authentic sling for your KW M1 Garand or that Springfield M1903A3, why not get an original one?

     This batch is typical "well-used", which I am calling "military grade" - slings which the Army would have no problem with them being mounted on a rifle. Comes with my "100 mile guarantee" - if your sling wears out before you march a 100 miles with it on your rifle, return it for replacment!

      You can't lose out at this price for a genuine, World War Two, "veteran" of combat.
