K98 Sling

Article about: Ben, I could be wrong but I don't like the buckle: on a WWII German sling the fixed pins should be flush grounded.

    Default K98 Sling

    Hi Chaps

    Can anyone tell me if this slings is original or not? Its the only pics I have. I have read somewhere that if the brass knob piece is brass they are not original German? Anyone any thoughts?

    It is postwar and Israeli.

    It should have a 'Y' sort of Hebrew letter on the buckle- this is the Israeli military stamp.

    Whoops... I really ought to look at things more closely. I think I am mistaken.

    Ben my Mauser Kar98k has the original sling as it came from my father-in-law and on the metal adjustment buckle it is marked L&F stamped. yours look good but I would not like to venture a guess if i am not sure as I don't like to seel people get ripped off. Check for that L&F stamp. Best Wishes
