dalbert Posted September 6, 2021 Report Share Posted September 6, 2021 I bought a bag of slings from Simpson Ltd. a couple of months ago because I saw the sling below included in the bunch. I didn't have much to go by, with only one photo of the lot of slings, which are mostly former com bloc slings. The sling in question does not require hardware, as it has velcro on each end. (In the photo, the sling has the velcro ends closed.) It is embroidered "XM177 E2," in gold lettering. The sling is fairly dirty, and has definitely been used. My initial thought from the Simpson photo was that this might be something special, perhaps something from Colt back in the 60's, but it could just as well be a sling that someone made up. I'm posting it here for your opinions. As an FYI, Velcro was patented in 1958. Thanks! David Albertdalbert@sturmgewehr.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
