    Afghan made leather sling and grenade carrier

    Post by airborne1968 on Tue Nov 20, 2012 6:10 am

    I picked these items up at the southern Bazaar in Parwan. First up is a sling that attacks to the weapon using two small buckles (one on each end).



    The second item is a grenade carrier. I've included the file image taken from a taliban video showing a similar one.





    Now all I need are the grenades. to complete the display.

    Compared to a sewn pouch it is but the construction is quite simple: 4 leather strips, a buckle, some rivots, and belt loops.
