The Enfield slings were light in colour almost white/cream.
The South Africans based the slings on the enfield design with the olive green colour.
Very durable slings.

And there is plenty left!!!

Ok I'm sure they are great slings.....I just know some countries marked them with a stamp or something and didn't know if these were marked in any way....

As a matter of fact I have never checked. Although I highly doubt that they are though.

I sent him a PM on FB.

He replied that you will get your slings, just be a little patient.

I personally know that he is going through great stress, including medical issues, in his life, but I'd rather not divulge things here.

Wild Hond,
would love if you would reply to my PMs and let me know what the status is for the 2 slings. If it's not going to work out, that's fine, but please refund me. Been 5 months now

I ordered 2 some time back. Took a while but they did arrive and I am happy with the slings, although they did require a good scrubbing.

Yeah, I only received 1, was told 2 more would come, months ago. Would at least like a reply to PMs since he has been posting on here since.
