Original Civil War Federal Issue Rifle Sling
Original Civil War Federal Issue Rifle Sling – This sling is an excellent example of a difficult to find, but essential Civil War collection element. The sling remains solid and pliable and has the cartouche of Watervliet Arsenal. This russet brown leather sling retains both its original standing loop and sliding keeper; it measures about 46 inches in overall length. There is some wear to the russet finish, but this Union army issue musket sling is in fine condition. Original slings, in decent condition, have become very difficult to find now.
