As noted, our Mosin Nagant slings are now completely original, Russian military surplus items. Each sling consists of a tough, webbed canvas strap that is comfortable yet refuses to compromise durability – after all, they are still here after all these years. They measure approximately 1.5 inches wide and include the original “dog collar-style” leather attachment straps. The slings are fully adjustable and each one is in good cosmetic and working condition.
These Mosin Nagant slings are two-point slings, an old design that features two attachment points and utilizes the two sling mounts found on the rifle (below the barrel and in the butt stock). When attached, two-point slings allow a shooter to carry a rifle over one shoulder or across the back – freeing the hands and making transport much easier.
Consider our original Mosin Nagant slings if you would like a rifle that is correct, or for any of the following:

The Mosin Nagant
The Mosin Nagant is a bolt-action, military rifle dating back to the late 1800s. After the Russo-Turk War led the Russian military to rethink their in-service firearms (then mostly Berdan single-shot rifles) the military selected a new rifle to issue to its troops. After much refinement and deliberation, a rifle known as the Mosin Nagant emerged victorious – an amalgam of Sergei Ivanovich Mosin’s 3-line rifle and Leon Nagant’s 3.5-line rifle. Over the years, scores of variations have been produced. Since I’m no historian, you’ll have to do some research of your own if you want further information.
