Original German WWII Karabiner 98 kurz K98k Leather Sling with Buckle by L & F - 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 quality leather which was originally fully 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, and the blued finish is worn. The buckle pin (Klemmwaltze) is in good condition, and is the wartime production 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 L & F, for Linden & Funke KG of Iserlohn, 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 does have age and some cracking, but still shows traces of the crosshatched embossing. The stitching is solid, and the leather covering on the frog is fully complete, with the stitching intact.
Overall very good condition, ready to upgrade an original Karabiner 98 kurz rifle. Genuine wartime slings are nearly impossible to find in serviceable condition, don't let this one pass you by!
