LEATHER CAVALRY CARBINE SLING

$695.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 766-1833

A solid example of the Cavalryman’s shoulder sling designed for use with weapons fitted with sling rings (musketoon, rifled carbine, and all of the patented breech-loading carbines). The sling was to be worn over the left shoulder with its buckle to the back.

This specimen is constructed of a bridle leather belt measuring 2 3/8” wide by approximately 50” in length with hardware of a steel swivel and snap-hook device used to attach it to the carbine ring. Also present is a large rectangular brass adjustment buckle and brass sling end tip. The buckle is attached with two rivets.

These slings were used extensively throughout the Civil War and well into the post-war period of the Indian wars as well. The condition of the leather is good and supple with light surface dust/dirt. The metallic parts are clean and free of verdigris. There is a “57” stamped into the outer surface.

This is a nice cavalry accessory.  [jet] [ph:L]
