This is an extremely accurate and high quality reproducton of the late WWII second variation Thompson sling. When placed next to a mint condition original in my collection, only inconsequential differences can be seen. If anything, the repro is of better quality than the original. On the reproduction, the steel hardware is beautifully and evenly blued to almost a mirror finish , and the hardware is perfectly formed with no burrs or sharp edges. The webbing has an identical weave to the original, but is of a slightly darker mustard color.
I'm really pleased with this item, and can highly recommend it. $29 plus shipping.
Best regards, and a Merry Christmas to all!
