Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice U.S. Civil War Era leather Body sling, 2 1/2" wide with large brass buckle, intended to be draped over the shoulder. Attached is a Spring-loaded Carbine Sling Swivel Hook, used to secure Saddle Ring Carbine, like a SHARPS, under the arm for use when mounted on a Cavalry Charger. This sling allowed the trooper to easily access the carbine, and also served to stabilize it against the body for single-handed shooting. This left the opposite hand left free to guide the mount.

This example even has an original inspection stamp from the U.S. Ordnance Dept:

G.Y. WOODBURY
U.S.
ORD. DEPT.
SUBINSPECTOR

This type of sling was used with ALL types of Saddle Ring Carbines by both the Northern Federal troops and the Confederate Johnny Rebs. In nice condition, ready to display!
