  • MRT sling question

    I've seen over the years ink stamped leather slings with MRT and a date.
    Were any stamped into the leather
    with a punch style stamp set as used on metal using no ink?

    Also were any just stamped MRT with no date ?

    Not positive on yr but ones I had in ink were 1970 and newer. I had a new 1963 and 1968 that were impressions in leather with no ink used for MRT or year. Not 100% sure if this was for all makers or coincidently the 2 I had? Marty might be the one to ask if any just marked MRT went to any or which branch of service?

      Should have mentioned that the letters and numbers were 3/16" at most.

        There are slings that are date stamped without the MRT.

            I had found one, ordered it but it never came. The folks said it was their mistake so they refunded my money. I found another one on eBay and I should have it by next thursday.
            It's not a 1960s one it's made in 2011 IIRC.
