Default K98 Sling: Opinions Please

Dear all,

I am after an original WW2 K98 sling and would be grateful for your opinions on this one please:

Before I take the plunge I would like to seek some opinion. Thank-you to anyone who takes the time to offer their advice.
Regards,
Andy

Not a good one if you ask me......

Only one hole for the “tab”, and there are traces of stitching on the end.....

Stamp looks like a post war one.....

Not one i would want to have

That’s about the one you picture..... it’s a different one that is shown in the advertisment........

Not a good one. Postwar made ( probably austrian made ). The second one shown has some israeli markings from what I can see.
