MG15 Ground Kit Sling Question

Postby michaelangelo » Fri Dec 07, 2012 1:37 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have a good picture of the sling used with the MG15 with a ground kit? Does anyone know where this MG15 sling can be bought?

Looks like a regular 98k rifle sling in the pics in the MG15 manual I've translated.

The correct sling for the MG15 ground version is an MP40 sling. I have two of them here and they have been stamped MG15 on the inside. One of them also has the MP38u40 ink stamp as well, so unquestionably an MP40 sling. On some guns that were used by the Norwegian Home Guard after the war I found MG13 slings, but the MP40 sling as described above is the correct sling for the ground MG15.
