I didn't see a sling like this in the STEN reference section.  Anyone ever seen one or know anything about it?  The seller told me it was an original WWII sling although it's in such nice shape I'm not sure.  It is a high quality sling, and looks like it will work very well.

Its a standard STEN Mk2 or 3 sling.

The STEN Mk1 used a rifle sling, the Mk1 sling for the STEN Mk2 was like yours but wasnt adjustable and is quite scarce.

I have got a Mk 1 Sten sling but in RAF blue, which I presume is reasonably rare.

Alan,

Please post a photo, if you have a chance.

I have an RAF blue Sten MkII sling in my collection.

I would but unfortunately its in storage in New Zealand. Interesting that you have the Mk 2 version.

 

Presumably there are RAF colored examples of the Bren gun sling? Although I do not recall seeing one.

 

All the best
