SOLD - 1941 K98 Rifle Strap / Sling
7/25/19 - This is an original leather strap for a K98 rifle manufactured during WWII. Maker stamped "c??" and "41" on the rear of the keeper stud. Maker stamp and date are weak but a "c" and the numeral "1" is visible. Ink stamped "kar" on the rear of the sling. This is short for "Karabinerriemen", and presumably put on to differentiate it from the "MP38 u. 40" sling which was slightly different. There are no other markings. The leather is excellent and completely in tact with no notable flaws. The leather retains about 95% of the original herringbone pattern. The buckle is un-marked. The stitching is all original as well without issues. Guaranteed original.
