Original German WWII Karabiner 98 kurz K98k Leather Sling with Keeper and Frog - Kar98k

Item Description

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 is fully crosshatched with a border. The sling will also work for G/K43 and MP43/44.

This is a very nice solid example that retains its steel buckle (Klemmstück), with the leather guard mostly intact, and a great worn finish. The buckle pin (Klemmwaltze) is in good condition, and is the later war type with welded ends ground smooth. The inside of the buckle has the correct textured surface for a more secure length adjustment. There is no maker mark on the buckle, however it is completely correct in style and form. 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 on this example does show some degradation to the surface crosshatching and border, but overall is in great shape. It is still supple and flexible, with no cracking or other issues we often see. The stitching is fully intact except for some pulling on the buckle guard.

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!
