    Italian issue M1D accessories?

    Does anyone here know what accessories the Italianicon M1d rifles were issued with the rifles?

    Especially what type of sling.

    Thank you.

    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 am guessing that it is the same sling as used for the BM-59?

    I am also wondering what kind of scope case there was with these. Metal or web, possibly the US mad web scope sleeve.

    Yes Hal, Garand's sling is the same as the BM 59 (with fixed stock) sling. The BM 59 with folding stock has a shorter sling.

    The scope cases are the American canvas cases: M65 and 7631596. Scopes and cases were all provided by the USAicon.

    The manuals and accessories have been selling on the web for a boat load of money. Much more expensive than similar US parts and the manual for crazy money.

    Here manuals ("Nota Descrittiva") for the M1D rifle are unavailable, both for the 7,62 NATO version, and for the .30-06 version.
    However, a number of M1Ds should still be in storage at the PMAL in Terni, and who knows . . . . .

    I sourced two of the manuals (expensive!), one for my rifle and another for a friend who also got one of the rifles. So far, I have Case, rifle, sling, scope sleeve and flash hider(thanks Collin).

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