US GI Korean War Web Slings, near mint!



      KW slings which appear to be near unissued. Some have a date, which can sometimes be made out: February 1952 is a fairly common one. (Because of the ribbing weave on some of the slings, the actual date can be hard to make out.)

      If the date is important to you, check the "add $10" and I'll try to find you a legible one (if I can't, I'll refund the ten bucks).

     Yessir, it's not common knowledge that in the emergency of ramping up to fight the Big One, Uncle Sam caused web slings to be manufactured for all those 1903s, A3s, and Garands he was piling up!

     And when the Korean War came about, once again Uncle supplied web slings to GIs for their Garands.

     KW slings have the same small buckle with sharp corners which WW2 slings had, but the keepers were the late ones you see on most postwar GI web slings - ie, they are heavier metal and have a reinforcing rib across them.

     In addition, there are two variations to the web material: One is the standard green web which we are all familiar with; the other is like a USMC belt material, and tends toward brown/tan.

     If you want an authentic sling for your KW M1 Garand or that Springfield M1903A3, why not get an original one?

      You can't lose out at this price for a genuine, US GI KW rifle sling.
