Hey, just bought a colt SP1 which seems all original (all colt parts from markings anyways) just wondering about the sling they came with, were they special in anyway(should I look for an original style?) or just a standard black web strap?
Thanks

The one I bought in 1976 came w/the standard black silent sling type.

All depends on the year. The very early models came with a very unique sling that was only seen on AR15s. (like the model 01 sling only it was black)
