    Any one seen a sling like this before?

    A friend of mine gave me this sling. It was old and super toasty like its been in a attic more than few decades. I have oiled it and bringing it back to life but i still cants figure out what it is. It does have a makers mark. IMD (over an arrow) 10 11 30. it is 51 inches long when not doubled over. any one have any idea? it is old but i have no idea how old.
    Thanks in advance.

    I have seen them but can't remember where or what they go on. Austro-Hungarianicon M95's took a sling with that type of adjustment hook but this isn't one of them. Probably something from the black powder days as you assumed.

    i can find things that look some what like it but not exactly what it is. It kind of looks like a an enfield sling and sort of like a Springfield sling but it is not either of those. it does look almost like the confederate reproductions slings on E Bay, the style of hoop and the construction are the same but the repros are made of linen. but there is no telling exactly what it is and other than the faint stamp there is no other markings on it. Thanks for the reply

    Post WW1 Bulgarian for their use of the M95, certainly not for Austria-Hungary, the A-H sling used no hook and was wider with a standing loop on one end for adjustment and a buckle on the other end for attachment to the front band. The link below shows an exact reproduction of the original M195 sling in my collection:
