MG42 leather sling 'gyb'

MG42 leather sling 'gyb'


A very nice original brown leather sling for the MG42. 


The maker code 'gyb' still remains faintly visible to the leather, indicating manufacture by Bauer, Wilhelm, Friedr., G.m.b.H., Lederwarenfabrik, Offenbach.


Please note that since this is the mid-late war version, with the wider rear attachment buckle, that this example will fit the MG42 (as well as the earlier MG34).   


It's getting increasingly hard now to find such good condition, original wartime examples!
