Some Finnish rifle slings....

Article about: Every rifle needs a sling, so over the years I've tried to pick up as many Finn Mosin slings as I can find - usually before I find the appropriate rifle for it to go on.... Late Continuation

    Here's another one I received today from a very kind gentleman in Finland.

    Rubberised Canvas - also called a "Tractor Belt Sling" - sling made by Oy Suomen Hihnatehdas (Finnish Belt Factory Ltd.) in 1941. This orange type is more rare than the blue-gray version I've shown above.

    The condition of this sling is immaculate - its still flexible and appears to be unissued.


    Well done on finding this one . The condition is exceptional , i wonder where this one has been hiding all this time .

    A new addition..

    Rubberised canvas 'tractor belt' sling. Grey version - in a LOT better condition (unissued) than my other example shown above. Quite proud of this one....
