Original U.S. M1887 Springfield Trapdoor or Krag Rifle Leather Sling by Rock Island Arsenal
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice genuine U.S. M1887 sling. It was constructed as a one piece sling - not the stitched 2 piece type - with brass double claw hook on one end and a brass stud button on the other. Comes complete with three keeper loops (1 Large and Two Small), as well as the original brass retaining stud. This sling was designed for use on the Springfield Trapdoor and Krag rifles.
The middle of the sling is maker and inspector marked:
Condition of leather is good, though the leather has darkened over time. Some surface cracking is evident, but overall functional and serviceable, with solid leather, probably the best original example we've seen. It was stored on a rifle for quite some time, so it could use some good conditioning before use. An excellent upgrade for any Springfield Trapdoor or Krag rifle!
