?????????????

does anyone have an AtF web ystrap they can review and even show, close up?
ANYONE???????
Colour seems modelled on a chocolate shade, and the back strap has a strange hole configuration.

1944 militaria web ys, are simpler, straightforward non eccentric tan colour throughout. And stitching is a decent olive shade...

AtF have restocked their web ys....but i havent seen a single owner review of them.

no answers here seem to confirm my thoughts that these atf web ystraps are not really being used much at all...certainly not seen any!

I have some ATF ones as well. I think they are way better than 1944's. ATF made the web fabric in various shades too. I don't see anything wrong with the color, stitching or back strap.

ATF has plenty of detailed photos on the website, mine aren't going to be any different.

These were all I got off before the camera died. I've had them for coming up on 2 years I think. Used hard, other than paint wear, and some muck and grime and some fading(as the real thing would), solid as a rock.

The green/feldgrau 'button' on the back strap isn't original to the set I don't think, if my memory serves me I pinched the one from these for an MP40 sling.....or something. The original is a mild steel button in grey which matches the metalwork on the front straps.

What happens when you want to shorten the backstrap? Can you show this? The odd spacing in the backstrap holes means youll have loads to fold over just to reach the second hole. Ive NEVER seen an original like this. :^(
