I picked up a nice pre-war Model 2 .22 rifle a few months ago and I'd like to buy a sling for it. Would a replica K98k sling work ok or would it be too long ?
Since my rifle was made around 1939-40 I'd like something in age and/or style wise that will match what its original owner might have originally used. Normally my go-to slings are the green canvas repro M1 rifle and M1 carbine ones. Those would look a little out of place on a German rifle so that's why I thought a K98k sling might work. I just don't want to buy one and find out that it's too long. If I can't use it on my Walther I'm unlikely to ever have a real K98 to use it on.You looking for the Military look of it, or are you ok with something modern?
I'm a little slow sometimes. It never occurred to me that I could just shorten or otherwise modify a repro leather sling. Thank you very much !Website says it is a repro, so like I mentioned. If you attempt to modify it and booger it, at least it wasn't a factory original, and you're only out $15-ish.
