The sling is complete with a sewn-on steel buckle and detachable stopper (or keeper) that holds the sling in the buttstock.
The detachable stopper (or keeper) is marked "1851 OK" which stands for an early logo for "Otto Koberstein". Please refer to the pics for condition and more details. This is the actual sling you will get. Will work on all German issue rifles with the cut-in stock, including the G41(W), the G41(M), the G43/K43, the MP43/1 MP43/MP44/MP45/StG44 and the StG45 and also the Yugo M.
