I need a sling for my svt-40 and I see them cheap on eBay. MOSIN slings?

Bought mine here https://www.gunpartscorp.com/ad/1161880.htm they dont charge the 35$ international export fee on slings.

Liberty tree collectables also had the ppsh slings (as above) when I last ordered. They fit better than mosin slings do, and are supposed to be accurate since the SVT didn't have its own sling.

I splurged and picked up a proper M91 bayonet a while back :)

Yes forgot about liberty tree , I got my Rasheed sling from them. Excellent customer service.

The sling I received had a rip in it ( even tho their website states surplus is sold as-is ) sent them the pictures and they sent me a 2nd sling free of charge and to me to trow out the other one.

Pretty sad we get better CS from US stores... hahahahhaahahaha Except Wolverine, They Phucking rock... :-)

And BTW make sure you oil the leather on these slings :-)

I got some proper neatsfoot oil from a cobbler. Does a great job on softening the leather too - I can actually use the turner sling on my Garand for more than decoration now:)

Ballistol, despite their propaganda, doesn't do anything for leather besides soak into it.

Repro Mosin-Nagant slings at Marstar for $20. Believe both rifles used the same sling anyway.
"...cheap on E-Bay..." Also funds Kooky Wendy.

Mosin slings don't fit the SVT40 well at all.

Can you bring a sling back from the USA? Or is it a no no? I saw mosin slings on ebay for $8.28 US. Free shipping within the USA.

The cheap ones on eBay are rather inferior repros.

I couldn't tell you about regulations other than I could order slings and bayonets but not Mauser stripper clips from Liberty tree..
