    Stupid ass question of the day

    I'm going thrue the safe and pull out the M39. I bought this thing years ago. But it just now dawns on me it has two sets of attachment for the slings.

    Why? Why? Why? LOL.

    So you can sling it to lay flat over your back. Bicycle troops often did this. Oh and sorry to be a month late catching this post. I guess I should not count on the Recent posts notifications to tip me off to a new post. Need to look in more often.

    You are welcome, like I said, sorry it took so long to get it to you. Also, nice looking M39. I had one that was just a beauty, I miss it every now and then. I also had a model 27 with the popcycle sticks reinforcements at the front nose cap / barrel band. It actually had a full 360 swivel up front just for the purpose of slinging it flat on the back while on Bicycle or Skiing. Considering Finland and how much snow they get I can understand the desire to sling it flat on the back so that they could use the ski poles especially in cross country mode.
