I’d like to get some opinions on this one. I talked it over with Michael when I got it, and it appears the majority or all? RME 98k slings are of the late pattern without a buckle or frosch. I maybe grasping at straws, but perhaps they were not tooled up for production of these components, given the style of their later manufacture, and perhaps that explains the early style buckle on this sling? Perhaps they were surplus or reject components that were used up later, it does have a minor stamping flaw after all. It’s in poor condition and missing the frosch, but still interesting. The other thing to note is that the other style RME slings and K43 pouches are a different font without serifs, but at the same time this doesn’t feel especially fake, curious to hear thoughts on it though, and if anyone else has seen one like it?
