    Ben I think its the wrong colour for a start, and the re- enforcing pads look odd, i believe you are correct in your assumptions

    I don't like the look of the first one too. The second one looks OK.

    As far as I know, the sling was universal to both MG's?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ben, There is no difference in MG34 and MG42 slings...The second one shown is a real German 34 or 42 MG sling...There are canvas slings as well..BILL
