CHAMBERS SLING FOR THE MODEL 1874 CLOTHING BAG SCARCE SLING TO COMPLETE YOUR CLOTHING BAG:  A very good Chambers Pattern Cloth Sling for use with the Model 1874 Clothing Bag which was originally issued with the M1874 Infantry Brace System.  Once the brace system was discontinued, the Chambers Cloth Sling with a brass adjustment buckle was issued to carry the Clothing Bag.  The sling was equipped with leather billets to mate with the buckles on the reverse of the clothing bag. 

These slings are not commonly encountered on the loose and when found, often are heavily frayed along the edges and show signs of long field use or poor storage. 

I have the following slings, each described below with accompanying photographs.

 

no. 1   CHAMBERS SLING FOR THE MODEL 1874 CLOTHING BAG: This Chambers Sling is in very good condition with no sign of having been issued and both leather billets are intact and smooth, showing no signs of ever having been buckled on a clothing bag.  The only sign of age is some light staining on the cloth as can be seen in the photos below.  (0121) $125

 

no. 2   CHAMBERS SLING FOR THE MODEL 1874 CLOTHING BAG: This Chambers Sling is in very good condition with no sign of having been issued and both leather billets are intact and smooth, showing no signs of ever having been buckled on a clothing bag.  The only sign of wear is a small snag on one edge.  (0316) $100
