    Italianicon Surplus M1D Garandicon Sniper Sling. These slings were obtained directly from the importer and were imported alongside the M1D Garand sniper rifles from Italy. These slings are unique in that they are of canvas construction with a series of brass studs in them. Includes a buckle and sling keeper. Approximately 46" long. Unique item that has not been seen elsewhere!

    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Breda transit chest layout

    Good Day
    The slings are a great addition. The brass tabs are used when the slings are installed on the BM-59 series rifles. I'm not sure how but they are used with indirect rifle grenade ranging.

    Inside the transit case, the securing method of the M84 elevation and windage scope tool is slightly different on my two chests.. One has a small wooden tab that rotates inside the loop, the other locks it down from the top. The way the flash hider secures appears to be consistent.






    Since the chests were somewhat custom, subtle variations are likely to be observed.

    Regards,
    Michael

    Could they be used like this?

    Thank you! That makes sense. Do you have a firing position picture of the sling when used in this hasty indirect firing role?
