    This. That's where I was going with my comment about nice originals and pricing. If there were nice original slings for $100 there are guys who would buy every one of them sight unseen, triple the price and still sell them all.

    Heavy thanks for the reply. Don't know where the other Forum member can find nice $100 slings but I wish he would let us know! Looks like I will be shopping At The Front.

    Default Repo sling

    +1 with the ATF, but I also like the surplus Israeli slings, if you can find them...

    They are nice, very solid, but very thick, and the brass hardware gives them away...

    If you MUST have a repro, and there are many reason to have one, re-enactors who are going to use it a lot, a stone cold mint rifle you want a mint sling on, etc....ATF texled slings are really primo...still not cheap at $70, but yeah, its hard to find a really primo original for $100 unless you get lucky.

    Minty originals are way up there in price....and yeah, for sure, if I could find a stash of minty originals for $100 I would buy a bunch and easily sell them for $200 a piece!

    Pacific Canvas and Leather makes a good one. I think that's what's on my RC re-enacting AR42 ZF-41. I did trim the frosch so it would lay within the cut out. Oiled, with two solid seasons behind it.

    hmmm...not listed anymore...

    May have also been a SARCO sling; have even more trouble remembering since my heart attack.
