    It looks like a sling for a Dutch Hembrug M95 rifle. Especially when I look at the buckle and the rivets of the sling. See; CIC - Wapens landmacht or http://www.leger1939-1940.nl/Uniform/start_uniform.html (sorry both websites are in Dutch).
    Normally the M95 rifle sling has a length about 126 cm. Your sling is 117 cm. Maybe it is shortened for some reason. Most M95 slings were marked with an ink stamp but this stamp can be wiped out in time off course. For example, an ink stamp like this; CM 1915. CM means “Centrale Magazijnen” (Central Warehouses) and the number is the year of production. What is the width of the sling?



    After the defeat of the Dutch army in 1940 the Germans reused these captured rifles. A lot of these rifles were sent to their occupied territories in the east, including the Baltic States. In these occupied territories the M95 rifles were often used by police forces or second line soldiers. A lot of these German reused M95 rifles had also an adapted fastening for the rifle sling. It was a fastening which was similar to the fastening of the German Mauser K98 rifle sling. Maybe your shorten sling was used on a German adapted M95 rifle.
