    I think it was made between 1931-34 if it came with my Pa's Stevens 66-B 22 rifle. It's been sitting in his closet for 30+ years and had lots of mildew. I cleaned the mildew off with 50% isopropanol and treated the leather with Obenauf's, and it's in decent shape (for decoration). It has "6 07" stamped on the end, no other markings.

    Looks like your standard issue M1907 sling.

    Have one on the Garand...

    ...and the M1A...

    These are new reproductions from Springfield that I dyed and finished. Having one made in the '30s is REALLY cool...

    It sure looks the same with older metal parts.

    Thank you Sir.

    The Garand belonged to my Pop and I picked up the M1A last year. Had to outfit them both with the 1907 slings...

    Great slings when properly fitted. Most I see in use are not. The one above is perfect...
