    They look like standard issue Koppeltragegestell. The only thing I can see that is a little bit odd is the rear strap hardware. Usually, this would be sewn onto the strap rather than riveted. It also looks different from other hardware I have seen. Others may wish to chime in. NH

    Austrian straps have padding. If you remove it there are telltale sewing marks left behind. NH

    The rear strap is Austrian. These often get used as a cheap replacement for Y straps which are missing this part.

    Hello,
    My advice will be : send them back and get your money back.
    Wait for another pair that won't be a worthless amount of parts that are put together in order to create an illusion...
    Thanks
