SPECIAL PRICE! Reduced until stock is reduced!! Added new photos, this is an upgraded model...please look all the way down, at all the shots!! Please view ALL the images!! The "long" strap on this is nominal 48" (usually close to 49")....but again, read the data!!! These are new items, and will smell of tannic acid, hide, and neatsfoot. 3 hooks. 3 keepers on these now, and they're oil finished. Note the large keeper in photo #21, near the middle. More stable than the conventional, standard M.1907, this is sometimes called the Model of 1918, albeit that may or may not be "officially correct". The genuine title is supposedly "Model of 1907, modified". I've also seen "M1907A1" applied to these, but that is merely local jargon, it seems. The real title seems to be, "Model of 1907, Modified". High quality, real leather repro, to regulations and specifications. Longest strap measures nominal 47-49" (usually very close to 49"), hook end to hook end. Myself, I prefer these on M1 Garand and similar rifles, because they're a bit longer and a lot more stable than the standard M1907. In fact, the heavy-barreled competition rifle I built for my grandson uses one of these slings, oiled for softness (see photo #21). I have seen literature refer to these as M1907A1, M1918, and Model of 1917L. I am not convinced ANY of that nomenclature is correct. Undyed leather. Normally, these were treated with neatsfoot until they were almost BLACK, as shown in the illustration here, a genuine WW2 photo, possibly from Iwo Jima. For comparison, a post-WW2 web rig is shown in one of the below shots. Rifles and other gear shown here are NOT included in this auction, obviously...THIS AUCTION IS FOR ONE AND ONE ONLY THREE HOOK B.A.R. LEATHER SLING. These are reproductions of the ACTUAL, predominant Browning Automatic Rifle sling of both World Wars and were likewise the most popular in the Korean War, albeit by then there were web slings around in numbers. The photos I have seen--hundreds of thousands!--from Saipan, Okinawa, and Iwo Jima, as well as the late campaigns in Germany show this to be BY FAR the most common sling for the 18+ pound squad support weapon. A web unit is shown simply for comparison, on a M1918A2 fitted with all the postwar doo-dads. I may order more of these and keep them on hand, but for now, have only TWO to spare. I used one of these on my grandson's M1. Again: None of the firearms are included, they're here for comparison and rigging information. Since the selectively darkened leather looks so cool to observers, I have decided to do that and add the large third keepers on all of these. And I have MORE on order!!! $8 SHI. No paypal, no credit cards except through PAI (no call-ins!). Please see the notes and terms and conditions with this auction. SHI is based upon the lower 48 states, anywhere else, it MIGHT be the same, but it's a good idea to ask. No returns unless somehow mis-depicted. Check the feedback here, or ask questions if need be. Mail goes to the Post Office Box. Again: It is the OFFICIAL mail address. I do not have a fax machine. Personal or company checks are acceptable, but may cause a day to a few days' delay in shipping your item, due to clearance considerations. If you have questions, ask them BEFORE bidding, not after. Packing materials and tracking and insurance cost money. If you have questions about shipping rates, check my feedback. We do NOT use UPS for any reason, at any time, ever! There will be no exceptions, ever. Too many losses, too many evasions and unpaid claims, too many problems. Anything banned or heavily regulated in your area will not be shipped. But ultimately, it's YOUR responsibility! Again: NO RETURNS UNLESS SOMEHOW MIS-DEPICTED. Anything modified, damaged, or used will not be taken back, ever, nor will "swapped out" parts be left unprosecuted.
