This leather cavalry carbine sling meas. approx. 2.50 inches wide x 52.00 inches long. However, it is difficult to get an accurate measurement on the length due to stiffness and waviness of the leather. Though somewhat dry the leather is still strong and has very little crazing.

The brass adjustment buckle is missing but all the leather and rivets are present on that end. Whoever removed the buckle simply cut a straight line across the leather just above the copper rivets and removed the buckle.

The end that held the “bat wing” brass tip has also been cut and only one set of adjustment holes are present. This end of the sling is marked “ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL” in two lines with an over stamping of “7 B 9.”

A buckle can easily be added and sewn into place to make this a functioning sling.  [AD]
