    Default K98 sling - wanting opinions

    Hi,

    Just wanting opinions on if the strap and keeper are original. Looks to be missing the loop. Marked jvl 1941? Anyone familiar with this maker?

    Thanks

    The sling looks pretty good to me. With no border it would have to be either late WW2 or early post-WW2 W. German. IMHO the thong is questionable. Odd shape to the rounded rear end and color/texture of the leather. Not seen that maker code either to my recollection...

    The sling looks ok, later type but the frosch looks bogus to me. I shy away from any with the sling "enclosure" on the keeper stitched.
