    Default Identify: WW2 Rifle Sling?

    Hello everyone!

    I found this rifle sling attached (incorrectly) to an ammo pouch at a local Salvation Army about 3 years ago.

    Can anyone assist with the identification of the sling? I attached a photo of the pouch just for reference. Not sure if this is the right forum section for identification of that.

    I can't tell you exactly what it is, but it's WWII Era...

    I did a little more digging on the sling. Looks like it could be a Russian PPSH/SVT 40 Canvas sling..

    SVT-40 sling, probably made after 1942 or 1943, and as said, German ammo pouch.

    That's what it is. SVT slings have pointed leather sewn ends not squared off, Ray
