MILSCO is a WWII maker of WWII leather items (holsters, slings; etc.), but there could be repro items with that marking.

Is MILSCO a repro or was there a mfg. by that name?

 

-Matt.

 

MILSCO also made the WW2 M6 knife scabbard and reproductions do exist of them. So the "buyer beware" rule applies here. That being said, I'm not aware of any repro "MILSCO 1944" slings.

Milsco stands for "Milwaukee Saddlery Company" . They made primarily farm and livestock harnesses, then shifted production to military products for the government to support World War II.

Really?! Interesting, i didnt know that. I have one of their M1916 holsters, but it has the full makers name stamped on it. It never even occured to me that MILSCO was one and the same :P thanks
