Original German WWII Maschinenpistole 40 / MP40 Leather Sling with Waffenamt Marking - Dated 1942
Original Item: Only One Available. This is totally original German WWII manufacture, and was taken off an MP 40 in the 1980's from a Government Sale of Machine Guns. Complete and absolutely original.
The sling is still a bit dusty from storage at IMA for over 30 years. The sling still bears an original Waffenamt marking and is coded dvr / 42 for manufacture by Johann Fröhlich, Wien 101/XV, a leather working company that manufactured pouches, belts, straps, and other military leatherware.
Comes complete with just TWO holes to the other end of the sling with its original steel "collar button" in place, and the original keeper loop is intact. The leather "scratch guard" on the back of the buckle is present, and the leather overall is in good condition, with a bit of cracking due to age. This particular sling was made smooth, so it does not have any type of cross-hatching.
This is a highly desirable accessory for any original MP40 display gun or parts set, which now command quite a price on the market.
