Thought I'd start a new thread rather than add on to Okiedokee's concerning his T-22. Several years ago I encountered a 22 with what appeared to be an original sling, I made a sketch. in the pocket notebook I carry to shows. George Taylor, Selma, AL, has one or more photos of 1890s (?) IJA troops standing with T-22s and the sling details are pretty much as I drew. These are quite different from the 38 sling. George has reproed these, if anyone is interested I can give you a telephone number. George and PCs are like the fellow that tried sex once and didn't like it, Geo. and wife bought a used PC that gave them trouble, so no more.

I'm not saying that the one Okiedokee has on his 22 is not correct to the rifle. But it would be my guess it was a late 22 production run add-on or was added when the rifle was surplussed to the HS. Maybe Stan Zielinski has photos of the 22 sling in his upcoming Murata book.
