    Default dou45 e block with canvas sling

    Recent swp45 post with odd leather sling prompted me to post this rifle. It has a canvas sling purportedly on the rifle when the gentleman(who I bought it from) got it from the vet. My own opinion is that these makeshift slings are not some type of official issue, rather expedients by German or GI's as a way to carry a rifle when no proper sling was available. This material appears to be WW2, and is held together with helmet split pins. There are legitimate canvas slings, but none that I am aware of for the 98k (there are MP40 slings from canvas). This rifle is from the next to last letter block, and is all phosphate.

    You would never be able to get an e block DOU 45 . It is amazing how often
    Items we think we will never get or were thought not made with , say a
    Specific type of Stock happen to come out of wood work and SURPRISE Collectors,

    Ugh mike u kill with these finds. Honestly I woulda said couple years ago that all dou 45 post b block went east. coolest thing to see is the unfinished state of the bolt with the seam showing on the knob. We all know what the last bnz 45s look like but could only guess on the last dou's till mike started turning them up. At least now we know, even if we can't own ;)

    Mike, beautiful rifle, I would LOVE to find one like that. I am probably too old for you to adopt, seeing as I may actually be older than you...:
