Original German WWII Karabiner 98 kurz K98k Leather Sling with Buckle by D & C - Kar98k
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a 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 quality leather which is crosshatched. The sling will also work for G/K43 and MP43/44.
This is a very nice solid example that retains its steel buckle (Klemmstück), though the leather guard is missing. The buckle pin (Klemmwaltze) is in good condition, and is the later war type with smooth ends. The inside of the buckle has the correct textured surface for a more secure length adjustment. The buckle is also maker marked D & C, for Dransfeld & Co in Menden/Sauerland, one of four known subcontractors. The sling end frog (frosch) is correct and made from leather covered steel. The sliding keeper loop is present, which are often lost over the years.
The leather is worn, showing signs of leather flaking and crazing to the finish. However, the sling is in one piece, pliable, and ready to display on a rifle in your collection. We do not recommend that it be used to carry a rifle due to the leather condition.
Genuine wartime slings are nearly impossible to find in serviceable condition, don't let this one pass you by!
