Ordered into production in the middle of 1864, cloth gun slings are seen in photos of Confederate soldiers at Petersburg, and many of the tens of thousands made survived the war. Constructed of the same osnaburg used to line jackets and pants and pieces of scrap leather, these crude slings scream 1865 ANV. While the great majority of surviving originals are in a short length that would only work on Springfield rifle muskets, there were some made longer to fit Enfields. Merrick's Custom Leather will be making these slings in both sizes. ENFIELD LENGTH SOLD OUT!
