Post by satx78247 » Sat May 28, 2016 1:50 am

Friends,

Does anyone KNOW what the original 1.25" wide sling for the Danish Remington RB 3-band Musket looked like??

A photo would be great, if you have one.

yours, satx

Single hook (folded brass wire like a CW musket sling) in one end, button in other. Leather of the same width, total length.
Have a picture af the accesories in a book, but scanning comes op useless, took a picture of the page instead.

From "Vaabenhistorisk aarbog 1984" (Danish arms and armour historical society, yearbook) 100 pages history about the Remington in the danish army

jbw,

WHICH book?? - IF you can find the name/author, I'll borrow it from the FSH Library & make a homebrew copy of the sling OR find a WBTS musket sling & modify it.
(I'm currently using a US Model 1907 sling but it's WAY, WAY too long.)

THANKS, tex :D :D

Like said below the picture, the danish arms and armour society publishes a yearbook every year, in 1984 one of the articles was about the Remington. Book titel: "Vaabenhistoris aarbog 1984" text in danish with a short summery in english
