Original German WWII Karabiner 98 kurz K98k Leather Sling by Stolla's Söhne, W.K., K. & A. Stolla - Kar98k
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition, totally genuine World War Two German issue leather sling for the Mauser Karabiner 98 Kurz (k98k). It is hand sewn, with steel hardware, and made of cross-hatched embossed brown leather. The sling will also work for G/K43 and MP43/44.
This is a very nice solid example that retains its steel buckle with leather guard, and sling end frog (frosch). The keeper loop is present, and in great shape. It is nicely maker marked cgu by the buckle end, for manufacture by Stolla's Söhne, W.K., K. & A. Stolla of Wien (Vienna), a maker of military leatherwear. The buckle itself is marked D&C for Dransfeld & Co of Menden. We rarely see slings with markings like this.
The leather does have some age and wear, but the leather is still a nice brown in most places. It does have a few small tears on the edges, but is otherwise solid. It does not appear to have been cross hatched originally. The stitching is solid, and the leather covering on the frog is complete, as shown.
Overall very good condition, ready to upgrade and original Karabiner 98 kurz rifle. Genuine wartime slings are nearly impossible to find in serviceable condition, let alone with such nice leather. Don't let this one pass you by!
