Carry your M16 / AR-15 rifle with top-quality Colt ® equipment! Made of black cotton web material, with metal hardware. 1-1/4 " wide.

Manufactuer's Part Numbers: SP64095 and 62249 -- from the best we can tell, these are the same sling, but earlier slings have one number and later slings have another number. Colt does not make either sling, as the sling is made by a private contractor for Colt, like may Colt products. Best we can tell, the lower number was used in Vietnam era M16s and the later number with M4A1 rifles.
As with many parts, Charlie's gets these in the boxes of Colt rifles and removes them for sale. They are new slings, but maybe either new or new old stock.
