    Only thing I cant verify myself in the pictures is if the attachment rings have the piece that rolls freely in between the leather where it is riveted together on either end originals usually have this component on both ends and have a makers mark inback of the adjustment lip, this is just a observation I made on WWII versions I have in my collection.

    You are completely right Nick. Looks altogether different on a larger screen.
    The shape of the clips is incorrect as well.........

    Agreed fake, The first thing I look for is the way the leather has been cut, It should be cut curved, not straight across like the thread starter.
