Default MG42 Sling?

Is this sling for MG 42 or is it for MG34? This is a great forum and there are many people here with alot more knowledge than myself. I aready been told this sling here is for a MG34. If thats right then what does the mg42 Sling look like? Is there a lot of difference in the two and if i have a 34 sling on a 42 does it look out of place straight away or does it fit fairly well? Any one have pics of 34 and 42 slings together to show the differents. My sling pictured here is 85cms long.

Its for MG42 - the buckle for the grip of the MG34 is much narrower.
