Does anyone know a source for a few correct Romanian slings to go with all the kits coming in..... From photos it appears that they used a brown leather sling as opposed to the green nylon ones that came with the SAR series rifles.

My WASR came with the Brown leather sling still in paper wrap with a green thread to keep it tied shut...


But I have to admit, the bayonet that came with it is for a CETME.

Any ideas on how to mount it?

The Hungarian leather slings would be a good alternative.

I'm sure once the Romanians find out the Americans are crazy enough to give them hard currency for some old ratty leather, they'll send 'em right over.....

I would be guilty of that if they did.

Cool pics Templar! Thanks.

I would be in the market for 4or 5 Romanian leather slings, when (if) they become available. Anyone interested in selling one they got with their WASR???

Ever wonder if the kit that's sitting in your basement is actually one of the rifles in the pic?

Templar, where did you find those photos? I didn't see any on militaryphotos.net

I really like the sling that came with my mak90. It has leather loops on each end you use to attatch to the rifle and it doesnt rattle and make noise like the metal rings do. I dont know if its chinese though.

Probably. The SKS sling attached to the front loop with a leather "tab".

Close, but not quite. The proper tape for AK use is (as seen in Africa & other 3rd world armpits)..........
