Civil War Springfield Musket slings in dark brown 

Leather marked “Watervliet Arsenal”

Patterned directly from the original 1 3/8 wide and 70″ long

Dark brown leather exactly like the original

Brass hardware

Copper rivets

Sewn keepers

Expertly Handcrafted Replica

Please note: This sling is pattered from the later modified sling in the early 1880’s.

Sling Installation Instructions:

Remove 1 of the 2 sliding loops from the sling.  Lay the sling next to the rifle with hook facing the rifle and the hook end toward the buttstock.  Orient the remaining sliding loop on the sling with the stitching toward the rifle.  Slide it down a foot or so from the hook.  Put the hook through the sling swivel on the trigger guard, starting from the trigger guard side with the hook now facing away from the rifle- you’re putting a bend in the sling to do this.  Once the hook is through the lower swivel, pass it through the sliding loop.  Then, pass the hook through the end loop that’s secured to the sling.  Install the second sliding loop now, with the stitching facing the rifle.  Pass the hook through the upper sling swivel with the hook facing away from the rifle.  Bend the sling around the swivel and pass the hook (now facing the rifle) through the sliding loop.   Pull the fixed loop toward the muzzle to adjust the sling length, then secure the sling length by inserting the hook through a hole in the sling from the outside of the sling toward the rifle.

    WOW! Just got it installed. Beautiful shade of brown. Just the right amount of stiffness. The leather smell is awesome! It really puts the finishing touch to my Springfield. I saw this on another site for over triple the price, then I saw this sling with the same markings on WWS’s site. What a difference! Thanks WWS!

    Beautiful leather, excellent craftsmanship. Really a beautiful sling.

    First I purchased the Springfield Trap Door sling for my Krag rifle and was very happy with it. So I then bought this sling for a replica three band Enfield. Once again I’m very pleased. These are good looking and serviceable. I’m a fan of World War Supply.

    Excellent quality and authintisity. Perfect addition to my collection. I will be ordering another one soon.

    Nice sling with clear, readable markings. Leather is of medium thickness, stitching is what appears to be heavy cotton. Brass hook is secured by two copper rivets and stitching. This sling installed easy on correct style/size sling swivels(defarbed), is adjustable with several pre punched holes, and makes carrying a ’53 Enfield easy. This will be great for my Western Fed impression. Thanks WWS!
