Just wondering if M39 slings should be SA marked? I know there are cloth and leather ones that should be a green color on the leather ones right?

They can be but in most cases are not. You can see this on earlier slings as well as some will be marked and some will not. SY and SKY markings were used used on the Civil Guard slings.

I've seen a couple of 'SA' marked green leather M39 style slings for sale on the Intertron over the past two years. Should've bought one but I couldn't talk the seller into shipping outside of the US. I'd assumed these were meant for the M27 instead of the M39 - but as we all know, whatever sling was available went on whatever rifle was available. I've seen a 1943 vintage photo of a Finnish soldier with a Carcano sling on his M39. I originally thought it was a Swedish Mauser sling, but they don't fit.
