Original Item: Only One Available. Standard issue WW1 1907 pattern sling used on the 1903 Springfield rifle and the M1 Garand Rifle made famous as the standard rifle of the U.S. military from WW2 to just before Vietnam.
M1907 WWI Leather Sling in good condition. The Standard U.S. service rifle Sling at the time of the adoption of the M1917 "Enfield" rifle was the M1907 leather sling used with the M1903 Springfield. The M1907 Sling was adopted for use with the M1 Garand rifle in 1936. The M1907 Sling was used throughout WWII with the "M1" rifle. The adjustment hooks and hardware on early M1907 Slings were made of brass, while the later WWII examples had steel hardware. The M1907 Sling was also utilized with the Winchester M1897 Trench Gun during WWI and on all WWII Winchester, Stevens, Ithaca, etc trench guns and riot guns equipped with slings.
Condition of leather is good and supple, has darkened over time, complete with heavy stitching, both leather keeper loops, proper adjustment holes and both correct pattern brass hooks (fittings). Some cracking is evident but overall it is totally functional and serviceable. One of the hooks has popped a rivet. An excellent upgrade for any U.S. issue WWI or WW2 rifle.
Lawrence was a WW1 contractor for these slings, and typically printed their name in an arc, as displayed on this sling. SMG would be the initials of the government inspector.
